On cask at the 26th Annual Folk Festival in Ely. A golden ale with a decent white head. Aroma of bubblegum flavoured ice-cream. Great flavour, lots of fruity hops, passionfruit, pineapple and mango. Not overly bitter. Sweetness is well balanced with the malt and hop characteristics. Gorgeous!

6 SImple mashy aroma, some light fruits.
3 Pale, small head.
7 Not big, but crisp and distinct tastes - pale grains and delicate hops.
4 Soft palate, carbonation pleasant. As youd expect from a golden, the finish is pleasant hoppy. 14 Like it. DIdnt know it had elderflowers, that explaans the light fruitiness in the aroma.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
Cask, Kings Head, Carlisle. Not normally a fan of elderflower beer, but this was a really pleasant surprise. Subtle aroma, not the overpowering perfume that elderflower brews can give off. Slightly hazy golden appearance. Very refreshing, clean and crisp with a fine tangy finish. A cracking summer brew.
