teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Cask at CPK, London. Meet the brewer event. It pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is huge on elderflowers and some peachy hoppy notes. Great. Taste is hoppy and the more fruity sweet side with loads of peaches and mango. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Overall, different and delicious.

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2012
The head is unstable, the body golden. It smells minze, lemon, lemongrass, elderflower. It taste the same plus a bit bitter. In the aftertaste bitter-lemon. Very interesting and good. 10/12/12/12/-/12

dogbomb (863) - ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Cask. Golden ale with a steady white head. Really strong elderflower and lime nose. Translates well into the beer with elderflower heading up the flavour. Also lemons, limes and zests with a slight sweet malt to balance the spicey bite a little. Finish is bitter and elderflowers hover in your mouth for an age. Interesting twist and drinkable.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2012
Cask - The Royal Oak, Poringland. Poured a clear golden orange with a fine lacy white head with fair retention. The floral, gingery elderflower is dominant throughout though not overpowering. Some furniture polish on the nose. Nice zippy lemon & spicy hops too. Relatively soft, short to medium length bitterness with a lingering floral note. Light to medium body, soft & lightly spritzy mouthfeel & a lingering finish. Well conditioned, lovely in the mouth & really quaffable.
