50cl bottle from Sainsburys. Straw with a thin white head and moderate carbonation; aroma of citrus and some leafy Bavarian-style hops; soft and zesty in the mouth with a grainy feel and some honeyed sweetness. Not bad.

well today i learnt about the birds and the bees. the beer pours well an into a reasonable yellow body with a expansive white head thats quick to die. on the aroma side of thing i get the sweet smell of honey plateaued by caramel.the taste takes a different approach starting with the caramel and turning from sweet to savoriness and finishes with a bite of salt.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is really floral, with earthy hops and some sweet malt. Taste is also on the sweet side, hoppy and floral with a slightly bitter finish. Light body with medium effervescence. Overall it’s a really nice, easy drinking, fresh summer beer.

martjoobolut (3197) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle (from edrinks, tallinn). Didn’t took proper notes, but it was golden beer with some old hops. It was drinkable, but nothing really exciting, I think a fresher sample would get higher score as the fruity hops were all gone.

Seffle (455) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2016
Clear golden body with white head. Floral nose but wouldn't have guessed elder if not stated on label. More lemon zest. Nice slightly floral bitter hoppiness. Won't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
