maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Wenlock Arms London 16/05/12. A slightly hazy yellowgold coloured beer with a bright white head. A really lemony beer. Almost seems artificial in its fruitiness. A bit of flowery sweetness. Possibly not at its best.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. I prefer this to the bottled version. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Nice aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with some barley in there. Williams house yeast aroma and flavour. Flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and mango, some sweetness and barley. Foamy mouth-feel. Didnt find this as sweet as the bottled version.

stravale (2932) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 26, 2011
Cask @ Old Mill, Brodie (beer fest). Straw coloured ale with white head. Aroma - distinctive lemon, citrus hops, floral notes (from elderflower). Taste - lemony, slight grape notes, citrus hops, aromatic flowers. Short, slight bitter finish with lemon. A nice refreshing beer, but the floral notes were a bit strong. Caingorm Trade WInds is brewed with elderflower, but the floral component tastes quite different to me, blending more harmoniously in the taste profile.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 19, 2010
[cask at 2009 Scottish Real Ale Festival] New beer (at the time) from Scott and Bruce, since been bottled for general release. Slightly hazy light golden colour, decent head retention. Reminded me of Williams Gold with elderflower added light and hoppy, crisp fruit aromas. Flowery, lemony flavours with the elderflower at the end. Very sessionable. Another good drinking pale session beer from Williams Bros [25062009]

Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough. Gold, slight haze. Perfumed golden ale. Bit earthy, too perfumed for me.

thewolf (12300) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2009
Cask @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours hazy pale yellow-golden with a small, nice, creamy, white head. Lovely lacings. Lovely aroma, flowers, vanilla, hops, crisp malts and a bit of lavender. Low carbonation, light fat mouthfeel. Flavour has green tea, lavender, elderflowers on top of sweet doughy malts. Pleasant hoppy dry finish. Nice.
