UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 The elderflowers are used to nice effect in this golden ale; floral notes on the nose and finish are very enjoyable.

ElDesmadre (1553) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle. Citrus, lemon, flowers... elderflowers!, some white grapes - those Bros really know how to compose a compelling scent in beer. Smells like a summer meadow in the Polish highlands. Light, dry, crisp, floral taste with a pronounced, grapefruity bitterness. As with many Williams Bros beers, I have that feeling that tastewise it could’ve been made even better but it’s already very good as it is.

Buongiorgio00 (764) - - JAN 19, 2014
Un’abbondanza leggiadra e non invadente di gusti e aromi, che accarezza il palato come una brezza primaverile. Ampie note floreali, pungenti sentori citrici e agrumati si intrecciano incontrandosi in un piacevole finale amaro che abbraccia la lingua. Io l’ho trovata molto fine e davvero squisita. Può sembrare eccessivamente leggera, ma in una birra come questa è un pregio.

Bottled. Hazy golden, coarse head. Bread, glue and citrus up front. Dryish with light body and clean mouthfeel. Soapy with some pear, white pepper and paper. Mid bitter finish.
