mike’s geting on famously with Mother Nature...and her best friend, a couple of cousins and even her adopted sister. And it’s this gregarious gyrating of genes that has generated: X The genesis of illegitimate sons.

An excellent thirst quencher with an enjoyable ’twist’. Long bitter after-taste and relatively low alcohol content are pluses too.

The elderflower is there on the nose, it's a nice bright and refreshing pils with mellow Elderflower undertones. Has a long lingering finish. Well worth a try ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the brewery that had a ’What the hell was that?’ moment with the Strawberry Blonde comes this. Elderflower is a fairly safe bet with beer. It works well in beer and its perfumy aromatics melt the hard of even the hardest cynic. This one is yellowy gold with a fluffy white head and hazy body. In the aroma profile it is a little funky at first - slightly vegetal and then pungent floral characters. To be fair, it is a little cold and may open up with a bit of warmth. Wildly prickly and then sweet in the mouth. It is golden like lemon icing on ginger slice. The finish verges on light citrus and then fades away like the Cheshire cat, leaving only a smile. MrsJimthechap approves.

Big elderflower aroma, hint of spice. Straw yellow colour with big fluffy white head. Very pleasant.
