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.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small white head. The aroma is grassy and citrusy, pretty British. Some lemon. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, along with the grass and citrus recognized in the aroma. Medium body, pretty dry on the palate. Short, bitter finish. Nothing impressive going on here, but it’s at least quenching. 140110

imdownthepub (10139) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Pale gold with white head. Pale ale with a sweetish fruity character, quite apple skin like in flavour. Just a little too thin and biscuity for me, but still quite drinkable.
