Towey1989 (3053) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2017
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of elderflower, mint, subtle straw and slight herbal hops. Taste of mint, some elderflower, slight straw, a little pepper, a hint of toothpaste and subtle herbal hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish, minty, elderflower finish. Lots of elderflower on the nose and then mint! Slight pepper too. Not for me.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Cask at Congress, Longton. Pours golden, elderflower on the nose, quite medicinal. Different!

sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2017
Clear amber with no head. Light floral aroma, and a strong, clear elderflower flavor overlying a foundation of basic beer. Escapes the "tastes like a bathroom" that often plagues elderflower. Nice.

Rune (13200) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2016
Gravicask, second day at Plymouth Camra Beer Festival 2016. Clear golden, naked head, minimal lacing. Perfumed mint on the nose. Elderflower mint to the taste buds joined by herbal hops. Mid-dry ending. Medium to thin bodied. Drinkable (Shared with Finn, 24.09.2016).

3.2
The_Osprey (8520) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Cask gravity dispense at Swansea Bay Beer Festival 2016, Brangwyn Hall. As ’Saltaire Elderflower Blonde’. Golden orange, still with a bubbly off white head. Aroma has the expected elderflower, also apple and malt sugars. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is apple, malty, elderflower, syrupy sugars, light floral. Ok, balanced but doesn’t have much of a finish.

3.3
redders1974 (1550) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Decent small creamy head elderflower adds rather than detracts decent hops at the end

2.9
ManVsBeer (10806) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Cask @ Waterhouse, Manchester. Golden with a small creamy head. The elderflower is potent, and more than evident in its taste, creating a very floral character for the ale.

2.5
gegwilson (3759) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Cask in the Puzzle Hall, Sowerby Bridge. Pours golden with a white head. Nothing really too interesting about this one. A little soapy and bland.

3.1
Theydon_Bois (20225) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Cask at the Old Fountain, 12/06/14. Clear pale golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is floral, parma violets, citric twinges, herbal, straw, blueberry. Taste comprises elderflower, herbal tones, faint mint leaf, tangerine, floral hop light, tangerine. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterness. Ok golden blonde with a twist - surprised at the score this one attracts!
