COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Regular & Bottled, filtered;
A fine blond low-gravity beer with a light, natural fizz and citrus notes with a sweet, flora aroma. The initial sweetness gives way to a refreshing burst of hop flavour which lingers through to a crisp dry finish. Twisted Spire will appeal to the palates of both the die-hard ale drinker and potential lager convert.

downender (5910) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 5/09/2011. Deep gold with a decent white head. Aroma of sweetish biscuit malts and grassy hops. Easy drinking, with some solid malts, touch of fruit and decent, bitter finish. An easy quaffer.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2011
Twisted Spire #5 - series 1 bottle. Very lovely pale straw pour with a light white head. The aroma is quite floral with a bit of grassy zestiness. Fresh and quite zesty. Lots of minerally hop flavour. A bit of soft peppery fruit and a touch of light zesty lemon. Nice and tasty.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle sampled at Mondial de la bière 2011. Very pale straw with a light veil. Thin foamy white head with good retention. Aroma is grainy and herbal with some floral hops, a hint of spices and a tiny bit of corn. Flavor is grainy and fruity with green apples, pear and a hint of lemon. Moderately bitter finish. very refreshing. Light body with fizzy carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Well made.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2011
On cask at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. After a couple of more zippy, hoppy golden ales we’re back to the more unremarkable stuff. Gold, dry and clean with a smattering of grassy hops (not enough of them in my book). OK but run of the mill.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2010
Bottled. A blonde beer with a white head and lacing. Some grassy hops in the thin aroma. Tastes a bit sweet and shandyish at first but then some definite orangey hops kick in. A reasonable enough beer.

tommann (2487) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a large frothy head. Aroma is hoppy, very spicy, grass and some citrus. Taste is much the same, grass to start with a spicy finish then more grassy hops on the aftertaste. Nice level of carbonation.

Cask, handpump at The Firefly Bar, Lowesmoor, Worcester, 15-05-10 Pours gold with a soft white head. Some vanilla and then a light woodiness or even straw flavour ripples through with a curly bitterness to finish. Really liked this. A7 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009, 7th August 09. Light gold with a line of head. Lots of dry, dusty and peppery hops. Tons and tons of flavour, especially given the low strength. In fact, it was so hoppy that it was almost too much for me!

Bottle. My wife was particularly put off by the aroma of this one describing it as resembling dog poo! Clear bottle . Some citrus and flowery flavours but not a lot of body. A bit watery and that aroma is a bit off putting.
