Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2015
Bottled. Slightly hazy golden color with a nice and fluffy white head that last for awhile. Aroma is citrus and slightly hoppy, notes of malt and yeast. Flavor is based sweet but with bitterness showing up at end. Fizzy carbonation and medium body with thin texture and bitter finish. Easy drinkability, enjoyable beer. I liked it.

shoestring (351) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Floral nose and first and last taste. Rocky head foamy. Feeling this could be a bit too cloying if drinking more than one. Just a wee bit too one dimensional and overpowering. Oh did I say floral. Tried Caesar Augustus and Fraoch too. Preferred other 2 but Fraoch leads

Pours a straw yellow with a light white head. Overpowering floral nose (not bad overpowering). Tastes smooth elderflower,hoppy and earthy. Very pleasant, smashing on a hot day, very refreshing good on a cold day as well

jamaty (1832) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada muy clara y brillante casi sin espuma. Hasta aquí vulgar. Fuerte aroma a campo plagado de flores. Y en boca carbonatacion marcada para resaltar una cerveza super aromatica, absolutamente floral. Final amargo muy sabroso. Muy buena.
