500 ml. bottle sampled @ Billie’s Bier Kafétaria. Lighter citrus, little white head. Nose is very interesting faintly herbal, fruity lemon drop hops, lightly fizzy, tad yeast,… Taste if fruity lemon drops hops, faint sugar, eucalyptus, citrus, light herbs,… Very light,… Very much a very light & flavorful Thornbridge pale ale, very lovely beer.

Kavu (2728) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2015
A small taste from a friend @ One Pint Pub. Pours pale golden with a low head. Aroma is nonexistent. Sweet malts. Flavor is sweet malts with some hops and fruits. Disappointing.

500ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo- 11-05-2015.
BBD: 19-02-2016.
In short: fruity ale.
Pours quite clear pale golden-greenish with lnice white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Fruity, caramel nose. Light body, average carbonation ,crispy texture. Taste is moderate bitter, fruity, still some sweetness. Quite refreshing and quaffable.

Great pineapple aroma but otherwise surprisingly ’normal’. Beats a pint of Carling.

Very underwhelmed by this. The aroma was old socks, confirmed by a friend. No hop action to speak of, although this was the 3rd beer of the evening, with the first two being kiwi IPA monsters, so was a tough act to follow. The taste was pretty bland. Forgettable.

freretoc (1070) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 26, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la brasserie, couleur blonde très très claire, peu de mousse mais effervescence moyenne. Nez très faible sur le houblon citron vet et ananas. En bouche citron, citron vert et les agrumes en fin de bouche.

DanielBrown (4057) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from Wine Lord, Birmingham. This shop is definitely expensive. Really nice beer though. Sweetly hoppy APA. Haughty beeswax golden notes. Would please a Burgher. Smooth body, honey tongue touch.
