COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled. Available all year round.
Pronounced bla-han in Gaelic the name of this ale translates as ’little blossom’.
A strong floral nose and refreshing taste has made this a very popular pint. A single hop variety is enhanced with elderflower and pale malts to great effect.

ianwelby (479) - SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2013
(Bottle) Hazy golden beer, quite lively with a frothy head. Aroma is light and citrusy. The initial flavour is light and floral but it’s followed up with a sharp, citrus-hop flavour and a dry, fruity finish. Not the best of it’s kind you’ll try but it’s very nice all the same.

mr_h (2862) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2013
Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear golden, thin white head, mild floral aroma, flavour of creamy malt with a subtle but effective elderflower flavour, refreshing, very easy to drink

stravale (2099) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 17, 2013
Cask @ Golden Rule, Edinburgh. Light straw - dense white head - nose of floral hops - soft floral hops and herbal notes over a pale malt base - bit of an odd flavour - fairly oily mouthfeel - dab of cereal comes through in the bitter finish which is dry and a little harsh - it’s ok overall

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle from Royal Mile Whiskies. The pour’s a hazy light amber with a fine bubbly white head. The nose is strong floral meadow, elderflower, rose and rain-soaked countryside. The taste is strongly herbal. More elderflower and dried grass. Earthy garden patch. Light pale malts with a slightly dry bitter finish. Very unique. Light, easy to drink. Overall, I wouldn’t care to drink this all the time, but this is a nice effort at a very floral beer.
