Percy0103 (240) - MEXICO - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. A clear golden beer with a big foamy white head and a nice lacing. Aroma is of citrics, green grapes, wheat and hops. Taste is bitter with moderate carbonation and astringency. Aftertaste is kind of sweet and acidic, like green lemons and grapes, Very drinkable and refreshing.

HammerTroll (691) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 27, 2015
Clear golden color, medium sized white head, not very appealing. Aroma is hops, grass, tangerine and elder. Tasty, but kind of mild. Thin, even watery maybe. Average carbonation. Expected more.
(Pivoljub 0,5l bottle)

One of the most underrated beer I’ve had (83 while this stupid Duvel is rated 99..). I recognize that the aroma is subtle and might be too light for some. However, I think that it’s what Thornbridge often aims at, subtle beers that are extremely rich if you pay attention. The appearance is amazing, crystal clear pale blond beer and foam retention is decent. The taste is outstanding, citrusy on the front with a slight white berries touch and a slight sweetness. It creates a very homogenous and consistent ensemble that works just great. I highly recommend it to people looking for a rich but subtle beer.

Draught. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white non-lasting white head. Light aroma of tropical fruits, grassy. Taste is of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, light biscuity hints. Medium carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Easy drinker.

MarkoNm (1037) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 17, 2015
Pours a pale yellow color, topped with a decent white frothy head. Pleasant fruity and pine aroma. Taste starts with nice gentle fruity sweetness (exotic fruits) followed by a very moderate hoppy bitterness, lasting in the aftertaste. Very drinkable. Gentle and delicious.

Even if the label talk about Anglo American Pale Ale, I found what an IPA offers : hop aroma and hop taste followed by bitterness.
