KansaiBeerLvrs (5035) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. This Green Jack ale made with elderflowers pours a clear gold with a thick foamy head. The aroma is bready, lightly floral with citrus notes. Mes-full body and a creamy mouthfeel. The taste is creamed corn, bitter herbs and corn biscuits. Interesting. 3.4

The_Osprey (7811) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Cask at Draft House as Summer Dream 4%. Says its brewed for Draft House, but Ill assume its the same beer. Pale yellow, clear, still, small foamy white head. Aroma has lots of elderflower as promised, green apple. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light, biscuity, elderflower, minerals and dissolved sugars, quite watery but with a musty bitterness that builds. The bar staff werent impressed but I thought it was nice enough - light and easy.

downender (8517) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol, June 2014. Golden in colour with a slight, white, head. Easy drinking pale ale, with some subtle elderflower notes, hint of grassy hop and moderately bitter finish. Fine.

SilkTork (5710) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Jubilee, Norwich. Yes, a summer beer. Pale with some rough zingy hops. Its nice enough, but there are better examples available. Very popular here in the pub though.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
August 26, 2013 - on cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen. Very clear and bright light brassy-gold with a small creamy white mottled head. Light aroma, classic floral/grassy golden ale - taste has some tartness and wheaty dryness and yes, elderflower - very light. Light body, carbonation, astringenty - a nice little acidic bitterness emerges in the finish - dry, refreshing.
