Erzengel (2706) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
Thanks to Seanyfo. The beer starts very nice floral, fresh, highly drinkable. The elderflowers fit in ideal. The aroma hops create together with the flowers an ideal and fresh summer taste, the beer is dry, nicely bitter. great! --> 12/12/11/12

Niall73 (1831) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle bb 03/15. Pours a clear gold colour. Aroma is a bit pissy with some lemon and a light maltiness. Light body, a bit thin. Big carbonation. Light and crisp with lemon being the main hoppy flavour. A bit boring really. Mild bitterness. Fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. A lighlty hazy golden beer topped by a dense, white head. Weak flowerey aroma with citrus notes. The flavor too is quite flowery, with some citrus and a malty hint. Medium body, dry on the palate. Some bitterness chimes in towards the else quite flowery finish. A rather boring one, and perhaps a bit too much elderflower focused beer, but it slakes the thirst and goes down easily. 121130

ciaranc (914) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 15, 2013
500ml bottle. Cloudy pale yellow, no activity in the glass, thin head goes on the blink of the eye. Looks awful. Grain and honey in the aroma, touches of summer fruit. Flavour is pleasant, bright fruity notes. Flat carbonation, light to medium body. Fruity malt finish. Decent.
