brugmanneke (283) - - JAN 12, 2013
(50 cl bottle) pours a clear golden colour with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma of sweet fruits (almost like canned fruits with syrup), notes of caramel and honey, grain, walnuts, elderflower without the earthy character. Lemon zest in the finish. Taste is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Soft carbonation. Good! Interesting blend of aromas, sessionable.

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.

Lonick (1029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle @home. Pours amber/orange big white head, this might have been me. Malty nose with a floral/pine/citrus kick. Taste is elderberry and citrus fruits, tastes fresh. Solid bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 Nice looking extraordinary ale. Better drink slow and regardfully to feel all those great qualities like medium bitter at the beginning, cereal taste with a touch of elderberry and lemon, noble aftertaste at the end. Great job, Williams bros!

Sjohnh (536) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Enjoyable easy drinking bitter. Lager coloured, with a generous white head. Body is light and creamy. Aroma is floral and hoppy. Taste starts off light and fruity - lemon and orange - with different layers of caramel and toffee malt becoming apparent further down the line.

dnicolaescu (1440) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 29, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear golden-amber, off-white smallish head. Light and delicate hoppy and malty aroma: some quince, jammy fruit. The taste is even more restrained, moderate malty and fruity sweetness with notes of peach ham. Light bitter finish. Not bad, but sometimes you feel like drinking a (maltier) lager.

Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. Fantastic floral and citrus nose. A hoppy and citrus flavour with a powerful elderflower taste. Very good, very moreish, excellent after a long hot day
