GBBF. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer. Litlle white head. Light dry palate. Some hop bitterness. Dry - trace of elderflower. Very dry finish. Much too dry and not enough elderflower. Bitter aftertaste. Not my favourite from this innovative brewer.

Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Pleasant elderflower aroma. Pale. Light grains drive the main taste, elderflower subdued. Soft bready finish. Gentle hop hint. A bit light and quirky, not that either of those things is intrinsically bad.
