UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Bottle from Tesco. Aroma of oats, tropical fruits & corn. Slightly cloudy light golden brown colour. Dry bitter hoppy apricot peach flavour. Lively carbonation. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Another good bottled ale from Williams Brothers.

sound67 (223) - Offenbach, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2009
50cl bottle, as pictured. Pours a clear yellow golden with a small, offwhite head. No lacing. Fruity aroma of peach, yeast and lemon. Medium-bodied blonde ale (not a bitter nor esb) with a surprisingly crisp, thick mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Peach is very noticeable as a fruit flavor in this beer, but healthy, citrusy hops and a strong note of malt keep things from getting too sweet. Oaky middle and finish, with a lingering dry, hoppy after taste. A very agreeable beer from the Williams Brothers, much more likeable than the same company’s not-dissimilar "Joker". Very well balanced between fruity sweetness and hoppy freshness, eminently drinkable. Lovers of English IPA will find much to like here, too.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 30, 2009
Bottled 50cl. I am guessing this beer has been brewed with Cascade hops. The nose is similar to Joker IPA (with some flaws, reminiscence of a berliner weisse). But definetely much more pleasant and inviting. Great hop profile. Plenty of character. Reminiscence of juniper berries and elderflower in the taste. Decent bitterness. Medium bodied. Dryish finish. Interesting.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - NOV 22, 2009
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Moderately sweet malty, slightly bready aroma with distinctively floral (elderflowers) notes, citrus and a tinge of hops. Light to moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry pale malty taste with zesty and floral notes and fruity, slightly woody hops; dry, moderately bitter and noble hoppy finish. Good one. 22.XI.09

22nd June 2008. Made with elderflower and lemon. These two indgredients are clearly present with a little malt. Refreshing, bit of a palate cleanser.
