Clear golden beer. Light citrus and grapefruit aroma. Taste matches the smell and the short-lived finish is slightly hoppy with a sweet, tangy edge.

Golden coloured beer with some head. Nice floral and fruity aromas but not much flavors to speak of and quite thin body.

It was a good neck though, the Rollins neck of the swan world. Hardcore swan.

I can add nothing to Danny’s review. Perfect. I’ve been walking in grass and I saw a swan show off its neck tonight. What did you do?

Weefannybaws (130) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle from Aldi. Light golden ale with slight head. Not much aroma. Very floral taste - due to the added elderflowers in the mix. Bitter aftertaste. Refreshing.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Slightly hazy golden with a white head. Nice hoppy aroma with tropical fruits and some citrus. Rather dry flavor with light maltiness, fruity hops and a pleasant bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice and refreshing.

# 3304 ersma: nach"gehopft" mit holunderblüten. gülden mit mittlerer verchäumung. der geruch ist fruchtig mit leichter holundernote. der antrunk ist säuerlich-fruchtig, auch hier mit holunderaroma, dazu etwas zitrus und bitterkeit. die mitte wird herber und bitterer, die fruchtrigkeit bleibt aber bis in den abgang dominant. der ist ansonsten malzig-süßlich. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: kein überflieger, aber ein nettes, fruchtiges ale, das, wie auch die brauer vorschlagen, schön für den sommer ist. gut trinkbar. 10,10,9,10,12,10 - 9,95 - 13/5/13
