I was very excited to get my hands on this. However, my excitement was soon scuppered. Very average and not at all exciting. Didn’t bother with another pint, and probably wouldn’t again.

CanCrusher (935) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle 0,50L. Clear golden color with average big, frothy, stable, white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of lemon and grassy hops. Taste kinda follows the aroma. It starts light to medium acidic and lemony, while finish turns to medium bitter with grassy notes. Medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Very good summer beer.

BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear pale yellow, white head. Hoppy aroma - mango, as well as grapefruit and lime, a touch of honey malt in the background. Similar taste, with a clear and crisp bitterness. A flavourful yer light beer, with enough flavour and moderate bitterness. Very good.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 27, 2016
from la Mise en Bière - quite clear golden-blond beer with a poor head retention; hoppy aroma of lemongrass, herbs and straw; medium-bodied, clean palate; subtle but fair carbonation; dry and bitter; fresh fruity and piney, lager-like crisp finish - very good

bartlebier (3505) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2016
500ml bottle bb01/2017 courtesy of Hofmark. Crisp dry greenbeige pour. Clean aromas of lime peel, lemongrass and freezedried grapefruit zest. About the same in flavour, dialed in with artistic precision and almost a lager sensibility to make an immensely quenching, dry, proto-juicy APA with an Old World sense of balance in the imported exotics. Rougher finish of wet grasses. - Looking forward to see more of mature Thornbridge quality to take it up with the punks.

imdownthepub (13396) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
Bottled, 500ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Gold with white head. There is a sweetish, orange, tangerine type flavour at the start of this, juicy, lightly syrupy all on a pleasant light malt. Later pineapple notes. Pretty decent.
