The_Osprey (6330) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Cask gravity dispense at Swansea Bay Beer Festival 2016, Brangwyn Hall. As ’Saltaire Elderflower Blonde’. Golden orange, still with a bubbly off white head. Aroma has the expected elderflower, also apple and malt sugars. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is apple, malty, elderflower, syrupy sugars, light floral. Ok, balanced but doesn’t have much of a finish.

Decent small creamy head elderflower adds rather than detracts decent hops at the end

ManVsBeer (8678) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Cask @ Waterhouse, Manchester. Golden with a small creamy head. The elderflower is potent, and more than evident in its taste, creating a very floral character for the ale.

Cask in the Puzzle Hall, Sowerby Bridge. Pours golden with a white head. Nothing really too interesting about this one. A little soapy and bland.

Taste comprises elderflower, herbal tones, faint mint leaf, tangerine, floral hop light, tangerine. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterness.

teorn88 (6455) - Out of the EU, 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.
