Bottle from Cornelius. This is a favourite Pours crystal golden with bubbly white head. Pine cones and herbs on the nose. This particular batch (bob jul 2105) is really herbal. Lemon and herbs. Great session beer.

mgajdaczewa (646) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Przyzwoity bitter. W zapachu lekka kwiatowa chmielowość, nutki karmelowe i wyraźna treść słodowa. W smaku podobnie, goryczka nie na pierwszym planie, nuty chlebowe, ziołowe easy drinker, wręcz lekko wodniste. Wszystko gra, ale szału nie ma.

tsurkan_sergey (42) - Novosibirsk, RUSSIA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle 0.5. premium bitter ale - comprising a mixture of 7 malt (barley and wheat), elderberry, lemon peel. Color - a little dark (caramel malt flavor and feel). Floral aroma, fragrant hops (similar to the "Pearl"). Taste - the rich - and the malt and hops are well audible, hop a lot, like IPA, astringent aftertaste.

spartakbarnsley (55) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - NOV 1, 2013
Don’t usually like beers with elderflower, so wasn’t expecting to like this. But the hops dominate, leaving something like a cross between a traditional strong IPA and a refreshing summer ale. And it works. Delicious, unusual and versatile. Session? Tick. Just one bottle to unwind after work? Tick. Accompanying food? Tick. An absolute humdinger.

McNeillR (1391) - SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Decent golden syrupy slightly carbonated with a wee bubbly white head. Firm malt nose, super zesty. Quenchable carbonated thick sugary bitterness. Odd mash up didn’t do it for me, especially towards the dregs. Tingle of floral lemon dry finish.

Bottle, Cameo

allmyvinyl (4442) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at queens hall, Edinburgh. Pours orange yellow with a good white head. Lots of pine and citrus aromas. Good bittersweet taste, and finishes well. Solid British IPA.

Weefannybaws (108) - 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.
