Time to continue with the reviews of the beers in my first trade.
This time I’m trying a Golden/Blonde Ale brewed with wheat, Perle hops and elderflower by Cairngorm Brewery with a ABV of 4.3%.
Clear golden color with a big white head.
I’m getting some hints of wheat and some floral notes. I recently reviewed a beer also brewed with elderberries, which had a more dominant floral aroma.
There are hints of citrus and some sweet malts in the back. The carbonation is quite sharp and the mouth feel is a bit thin.
As the beer warms up a bit I’m getting some more floral hints.
The finish is quite short, and contains some floral and citrus hints.
A very light and refreshing beer. I would probably enjoy this a lot more in the summer time. It would no doubt be a better alternative than all the mass produced low ABV beers available in the regular grocery stores here in Norway. Score: 3.4/5.
