Pours light with little head. Cask. There is a strong floral nose and taste of hops. A slight sweetness and a little malt but not much. Elderflowers and maybe a little citrus. sound67 (761) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2015
Maker: Williams Brothers (Heather Ales), Alloa, Scotland ***
Beer: Birds and Bees (cask at The Standing Order, Edinburgh) ***
Style: Golden Ale ***
ALC.VOL.: 4.3% ***
Colour: Straw yellow, clear. Minimal head. ***
Nose: Elderflower, citrus, floral notes. ***
Texture: Light body, not too watery. Minimal carbonation. ***
Taste: Elderflowers (they’re included in the brew) register immediately, first taste is intensely floral, with a lemon note. Hardly bitter at all. Very modest bitterness in the middle, again floral notes and a hint of lemon. Finish still not really bitter, short aftertaste, a bit bitter. ***
Impressions: Individually flavoured golden ale, the elderflowers being an asset. Bitterness could be higher to sharpen the taste profile. Giochaurand (533) - FINLAND - MAY 26, 2015

cask at Hating Room, I mean Waiting Room. wife like this in the bottle but I don’t recall ever having it on cask... very nice however. no head to speak of, delicate aroma, taste a combination of floral, citrus, elderflower? plus lightly bitter finish. very sessionable. superior to the bottled version IMO. jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Golden with a medium white head. Lemon and floral hop aroma. Oily with light carbonation. Decent beer.
