On Cask at Wetherspoons. Looks nice. Golden with a thick creamy head. Citrus hop aroma. Tastes pretty good. Nice bitterness. Fruity. Clean finish. A decent very refreshing cask ale.

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 (1325) - 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.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2012
Cask, 4.3% at 16. Berliner Bierfestival. Elderflower and peach aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Small frothy white head. Good fruity flavour, refreshing, but not too sweet. Clean bitter finish.

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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. I prefer this to the bottled version. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Nice aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with some barley in there. Williams house yeast aroma and flavour. Flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and mango, some sweetness and barley. Foamy mouth-feel. Didn’t find this as sweet as the bottled version.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 26, 2011
Cask @ Old Mill, Brodie (beer fest). Straw coloured ale with white head. Aroma - distinctive lemon, citrus hops, floral notes (from elderflower). Taste - lemony, slight grape notes, citrus hops, aromatic flowers. Short, slight bitter finish with lemon. A nice refreshing beer, but the floral notes were a bit strong. Caingorm Trade WInds is brewed with elderflower, but the floral component tastes quite different to me, blending more harmoniously in the taste profile.

[cask at 2009 Scottish Real Ale Festival] New beer (at the time) from Scott and Bruce, since been bottled for general release. Slightly hazy light golden colour, decent head retention. Reminded me of Williams Gold with elderflower added – light and hoppy, crisp fruit aromas. Flowery, lemony flavours with the elderflower at the end. Very sessionable. Another good drinking pale session beer from Williams Bros [25062009]
