Weefannybaws (96) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - JUL 27, 2013
500ml bottle. A light golden colour, with plenty of fizz. Lemon nose. Bitter, lemon aftertaste with metallic overtones. Refreshing and easilly drinkable, but instantly forgettable. Perfect accompaniment to nuts or crisps.

ThirstyBird (1603) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a pale golden yellow color with a sustaining white head. Smell is spice, citrus. Taste is citrus, herbs, some malt sweetness ending dry and crisp. Body is light yet a touch oily and with average carbonation. Pretty nice beer, overall.

"extraordinary ale" as stated on the label is a bit exaggerated. however, this ale is far better than the fraoch heather ale. well, for my taste. nice herbal and citrus aromas define this ale. but is tastes like all Williams Bros. ale of this type. the "Birds and Bees" ale is similar to this one. anyway, this ale is a nice experience.

Bozo_skeleton (522) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2013
Bitter couleur paille, limpide, mousse fuyante. Les agrumes sont très présent et spécialement le citron. Une pointe d'épices, le tout est relativement complexe mais agréable. Petite amertume en bout de course mais trop courte en bouche. Bon équilibre du sucre.

Graham77 (234) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 500ml bottle. Lively hoppy, citrus aroma. Rich golden colour with good head which retains reasonably well. Taste follows with noticeable elderflower,a more than passable ale.
