A bright, golden summer ale brewed with a blend of Belgian pale malt, Cascade and Bobek hops with a late infusion of fresh elderflowers and lemon zest. Fruity, aromatic and deliciously refreshing.

Nothing special about this ale. Really just a lager with a hint of elderflower. It is fairly refreshing but I prefer Grozet from the same brewery in that respect. Pleasant enough drink.

500 ml bottle. Cloudy golden body with a creamy white head. Not much aroma, just a hint of pale malt and fruit. Flavour is light and refreshing, pale malt, fruit and flowers. Quite plain and simple, not much bitterness, but refreshing. Easy forgotten.

Bionda trasparente, con poca schiuma poco persistente. Aroma resinoso, floreale, molto aromatico con tracce di frutta gialla. Originale senza alcun dubbio. Al palato divertente, fresca, beverina, elegante e floreale grazie forse alla presenza in ricetta dei fiori secchi. Ripeto divertente da bere e assolutamente dissetante. Uno dei miei birrifici preferiti grazie alla loro originalità.

Beerheart65 (1116) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Good fresh citrus fruitiness, bit flowery, malting covered mostly. Makes me wanna taste anyway. Looks like hazy honey with short, thin head and bit lacing. Crisp, fresh feel, light but not watery, easy to drink, bitter and fruity, long citrus finish with good bitterness. Good light and fresh one for thirst. Worked nicely with my tuna pate sandwich.

danlo (1639) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2013
500ml bottle. Pale golden yellow colour, bubbly white head and lemony citrus aroma. Taste is tangy caramel malt, with a floral lemon citrus hop aroma and a dry bitterness. Light body and medium carbonation. Quite OK Golden Ale.

mighty_meadow (303) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Golden syrup colour. Quite hazy.Pours a nice head but doesn?t last too long. Doesn?t feel too highly carbonated but keeps a lacing throughout. Smells of outdoors, floral, nettles perhaps. Thought it started off slightly tart but after a few mouthfuls the sweetness comes through. Finishes off on a citrus note but subtle rather than draw your cheeks together. Quite watery for Williams Bros and doesn?t really feel 5%. Good but not the best from this particular brewer. [Actually, the further down the glass I get, the more I?m liking this] Now showing on bottle as 4.3%. Very decent session ale. Closer to 4 stars but not quite.

Bottle. Light golden with a thin head. Lemon aroma and a lot of lemon in the flavour. Light and refreshing.
