4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can’t remember the pub - somewhere in SW7 and it was late.... Flowery aroma, elderflower taste. Strong hoppy flavour but not too bitter - just how I like it, Beautiful golden amber colour, but perhaps served a little cold? Head was frothy and disappeared quite quickly, but by then I’d drunk more than half of it. One of my recent favourites.
