SaintMatty (5541) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Cask (Bridge Tavern, Newcastle) - Golden in colour. Elderflower, lemon and biscuity malt in the aroma. Elderflower and biscuity malt are in the taste. Not bad, but I love beers elderflower in it and I was hoping for a bit more from this one.

Cask conditioned handpump Sun Hardingstone 24/12/13. A blonde beer with a white head. Nice sweetness from the elderflower in this but also a light fruity note. All works well and is easy to guzzle. As good an elderflower infused beer as I’ve had in ages.

Rake. Cask. Clear golden beer, residual white head. Palate is light, semi dry and mildly crisp. Light pale malt. Elderflower is well integrated and not cloying. Finishes light and dry. Refreshing easy drinking.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint on 6th Dec 13 in The Crown Inn, Oakengates. Golden brew with lemon notes all over the place, couldn’t pick up any Elderberry esters or flavours like the brewery claim is around this brew. Too many citrus flavours for me. Medium bodied, but I don’t like citrus, golden brews and this is certainly one of those, really pleased I only had a half. Scored objectively (mostly).

Bottle from Deli in Llangollen. Pale gold with a moderate white head and a light sparkle. Unmistakable fresh elderflower aroma and flavour. Some lemon, white pepper and lemongrass comes through behind, leading to a middling bitterness in the lightly dry finish. It could be criticised by some for the beer playing second fiddle to the elderflower, but I like elderflower so that is fine by me! A lovely light summer refresher.
