COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

AROMA: grass, hay, heather APPEARANCE: golden, clear, sparkling, minimal head, white foam, TASTE: light sweetness, lightly bitter, PALATE: medium body, sticky, lively, not too long finish OVERALL: starts as a refreshing pilsner, turns to a nice summer ale, but then the heather kicks---heather and beer do not mix

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours yellow, with an airy head. Not a lot going on in the aroma department her, but a light caramel malt can be recognized by good will. Flavour is sweet and obviously has a fair amount of elderberry, but there’s also fruity notes of apple and sweet citrus along with honey and very light notes of flowery hop. Strange beer really.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle by NOV 2013. Nose is quite hoppy, dry and brittle Amarillo, for sure, light malt. Body a pale clear golden with a soapy white head. Bready-malty taste, relatively dry and breadening out toward the end, a watery-thin body that is hop-dominant but non-aggressive. Some herbal-grain notes with light bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant and lightweight.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2012
Dark amber/honey colour, white head. Floral aroma with a touch of hops. Taste is verging on bland (perhaps straightforward is a better word) with citrus and is fairly refreshing if not especially interesting.

ClubGonzo (4230) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a clear dark honey-hued body with a small white head. Aroma is mild floral tones with some vague, undefined fruity tones in the back. Weak. Taste is no better: pale malts, cardboard and dusty hops. Bitter finish that seems to come from nowhere. Badly balanced, boring and forgettable.

Gift from the Scotsman. Very thin yellow pour with corn aroma and taste. Not much of anything going on in this one. A hint of fruit.
