omhper (25570) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear golden. Citric nose with vanilla and elderflower. Medium sweet with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. The elderflower acts as a spice in the background. Together with hay and citrus it provides refreshment and some late bitterness. One of the more succesful spice beers from Dark Star.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Clear gold beer, light white head. Dry palate - very dry!!! Bitter hops - orange, grapefruit. A light touch of honey provides some relief from the dry bitterness. Edlerflower? Could have fooled me! Stupidly dry beer and a huge dissapointment!

Leighton (22056) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2010
Cask at the White Horse. Pours clear gold, light, with a fine cream head. Floral hop aroma with light grass and bread. Fairly sweet, with mild bread and caramel, then a strong though not excessive bitterness. Plenty of flowery hops and modest earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation and quite smooth. Lightly sweet on the finish with lots of lingering hops. Great stuff.
