1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask at the Gallows Bird, Espoo, Finland.
Cloudy golden colour with tiny white head.
Very peculiar aroma. Some strong flowers, ski wax and maybe some lard of the oven roasted pork in aroma.
Flavour is almost as strange. I can't describe this as tasty. Lard in aftertaste. Quite frankly this is bad.

Cask atThe Malt and Hops. Pale amber with a thin white head. Great nose. Definite elderflower but not overpoweringly so. Malt on the flavour, a little elderflower and perhaps a little hops. Quite nice altogether.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Deeside Drink Emporium, Banchory. It pours cloudy golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is big floral, particularly elderflower, honey sweetness and tangerine. The taste is soft citrus, orange, tangerine and floral, with a dry finish. Light body and soft carbonation. Smooth, light and easy drinking. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle at home. Pours a pale, hazy amber with a bright, bubbly head with good lacing. Beautiful aroma of elderflower and peaches, very clean. Taste is bitter and dry, with very little maltiness. Some very subtle sweetness form the elderflower, but it could be more pronounced. Aftertaste is relatively bitter, but rather short-lived. I find it hard to find much in this beer, it’s perfectly nice and refreshing, but rather bland. Shame really, because the aroma is so good.

From bottle. pours a light, clear straw coloured session ale. sweet fruity aroma apple, pears pineapple. light bitter flavour, gentle rolling hops with a subtle sweetness to boot. Cant really detect much if any elderflower in there but maybe it’s just contributing to the sweet side of things.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[500ml bottle, Oddbins Edinburgh] Slightly hazy gold from the bottle conditioning, aromas of grassy hop and plenty of wheatbeer style yeasty aromas. On the taste it reminds me more of a Belgian style pale ale - got the yeasty funk plus a hop addition and the grassy, fruity elderflower notes - which aren’t that full forward
