Maker: Williams Brothers (Heather Ales), Alloa, Scotland *** Beer: Birds and Bees (cask at The Standing Order, Edinburgh) *** Style: Golden Ale *** ALC.VOL.: 4.3% *** Colour: Straw yellow, clear. Minimal head. *** Nose: Elderflower, citrus, floral notes. *** Texture: Light body, not too watery. Minimal carbonation. *** Taste: Elderflowers (they’re included in the brew) register immediately, first taste is intensely floral, with a lemon note. Hardly bitter at all. Very modest bitterness in the middle, again floral notes and a hint of lemon. Finish still not really bitter, short aftertaste, a bit bitter. *** Impressions: Individually flavoured golden ale, the elderflowers being an asset. Bitterness could be higher to sharpen the taste profile.

nulptr (114) - SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2013
cask at Hating Room, I mean Waiting Room. wife like this in the bottle but I don’t recall ever having it on cask... very nice however. no head to speak of, delicate aroma, taste a combination of floral, citrus, elderflower? plus lightly bitter finish. very sessionable. superior to the bottled version IMO.

ladnewton (1615) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 16th October 2012. Amber. Dying head vanishes. Fruity, slightly cheesy aroma. Vanilla and floral hops in-mouth, with some grass. Finish is floral, grassy and herby. Light mouthfeel and a fair amount of body for the strength.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Wenlock Arms London 16/05/12. A slightly hazy yellowgold coloured beer with a bright white head. A really lemony beer. Almost seems artificial in its fruitiness. A bit of flowery sweetness. Possibly not at its best.
