jjsint (1549) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Handpull cask at the Dog & Doublet, Wolverhampton. Light gold, clear, a small bit of head encircling the glass. Sticks to the edges creating quite a bit of lacing. Fresh grainy lemony aroma with an unwelcome note of butterscotch... nice overall if flawed. Sweet taste with a bitter edge which fades over the course of the sip. There’s quite a bit of elderflower cordial in the taste, but overall it’s a fairly basic (if above average) golden beer.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear light golden colour with a small head. Aroma is very refreshing full of elderflower and cascade hops. Tastes is simmilar, lightly hoppy and of elderflower. Overall a great refreshing summer beer.

Bottle. Golden beer with a reasonable white head. The aroma is hopped and dry, and the flavour is dry and hopped with a yeasty undertone. Overall a nice hopped and dry beer with a hint of elderflower. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask-conditioned at the Pelican, Gloucester, 5/6/2015. Golden in colour, with a decent, white, head. Some citrus fruit upfront, followed by subtle elderflower notes, biscuity malts and a moderately bitter finish. Pleasant

Pours light, thin foam, super pale and looks watery. Aroma is nice, bit of citrus, light and lemony. Taste is also very subtle, easy and drinkable. You should drink this by pints and pints.
