3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oragne golden color, slight but steady head. Flowery honeyaroma and flavor. Perfumed sweet, but still some hops present. A bit of a woman's beer. Sweeter than average, a bit of flowers, a bit of honey. Well balanced. I like this beer, but "the nectar of the gods" as the label says......No!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Amber with a fine white head big bitter hop aroma. Hops, bitter, bitter hops and plenty off them in this beer. Pleasant I suppose but its elderflower done to the extreme.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Absolute rancid puke. Its bitter, which can a lot of times be good, but the bitterness/acidity in this one was absolutely rank. Really thin, quite dry. Maybe it was the elderflowers or something, this wasn't fun to drink.

surprised to see so many lower scores for this stuff, one of the better amber ales from england i think. little smokey, roasty, very clean and malty, with a good hop punch. nice label too. try it

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden colour. Quite hoppy aroma with hints of elderberries. The elderberries are more pronounced in the flavour and even in the finish. Not bad at all, albeit a bit sweet.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light crisp floral nose. GOlden hue with a fast dissapating head. Very refreshing crisp, delicate elder flower taste. It is very refreshing or was on the warm summer night that I had it. Quality like you would expect from Youngs.

Bottled at the Danish Beerfestival 2003: Light golden with low head. The elderberry flowers are rather distinct both in taste and smell. Very refreshing.
