jjsint (3428) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Cask at the Flying Pig, Cambridge. Golden, clear, a bit of white head and lots of lacing. Light elderflower, grass, melted butter. Sweet and slightly floral taste with a slightly more bitter and medicinal finish. More elderflower in the aftertaste. Not great I am afraid.

Jonb5 (559) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Pint at the Willow Walk JDW. A: Golden, small head, slightly hazy, left lots of lacing around the side of the glass. S: Floral, slight elderflower presence, some Fuggles hop. T: Slightly sour apples, earthy Fuggles hop made itself noticed. M: Smooth, not massively carbonated, medium body. O: A crisp, subtle summer beer. Very well made by a brewery that doesn’t make a habit of letting you down.

Turtles (2887) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2016
Cask @ Oliver Twist. Slightly hazy golden, large, long lasting, white head, good lacing. Fruity aroma, elderflower dominates. Soft, velvety mouthfeel. Pleasant elderflower taste, fruity and mild floral.

berkshirejohn (6611) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Pale amber with a loose soapy-looking white head; elderflower aroma with a hint of citrus; soft and chalky in the mouth with a light floral taste; then softly bitter with some hedgerow fruit to finish. Light and refreshing, and a change from citrusy summer ales.

minutemat (5938) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2016
Cask @ The Three Fishes, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold, minimal white head. Grassy hop aroma. Taste is a standard smooth blonde, no detectable elderflower unfortunately but a nice floral noble hop character.

Rasmus40 (21689) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2016

allmyvinyl (10926) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Cask at Thomson’s. Pours clear pale gold with a thin white head. Aromas of light hay, grassy, faint elderflower. Taste is more of the same. Thin finish.

TBone (17990) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2016
Cask at CBC Brighton. Clear golden color, steady small white head. Hayish and fruity aroma. Light-bodied. Citrus fruityness in the flavor. Herbal notes from elderflower are not so evident. Ok but not exciting beer.

jeevan (246) - SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Cask at Stockbridge tap. Pours quite pale with a thinnish white head. Big malt aroma and Nobel hops. Very much an Elderflower experience on the taste, nicely mixed in with the bitterness of the hops and malt backbone. The Elderflower aint light here in my opinion. Double floral delight. Interesting and enjoyed.

witthatsbier (579) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2014
cask @ Raven GLASGOW, POURS Pale yellow with white head Taste is fruity mildly bitter with long dry fruity finish a nice session bitter
