Scrumpy369 (439) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle in edinburgh. Clear yellow colour big white head with good retention. Nose is fruity hoppy. Taste is low bitterness. Expected more hop after the nose. Much more. No hops at all in the taste. Light elderflowery sweetness in the aftertaste. That makes it marginally better than a medicore beer.

ThePercyBoy (9) - Central Scotland, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2015 does not count
Bottle from Aldi for £1.49. This is a personal favourite of mine. I find it sweet without being cloying or too filling. The lemon and the elderflower complement each other, rather than competing, adding to the taste.
