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.

Kita (1430) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear golden color with medium soapy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is mild fruity, herbal and almost non-existing. Taste starts with light sweet toasted malt, follows by refreshing fruity and grassy acidity, mouthfeel is dry, while finish is moderate bitter. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Quite a disahoppointment...

Alla spina. Colore dorato scarico, limpida, molto frizzante. Olfatto con frutta, erbaceo, poco intensi. al palato corpo watery, gasatura eccessiva e un oof-flavour di erba, vegetale, stucchevole.

skortila (4821) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
On tap @ Thornbridge brewery. 25cl sample. As well as a bottled 25cl sample @ home. Best on tap, probably more fresh. The aroma is light citric, bit grainy, has some fresh spice tones. Clear, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light bitter, light grainy sweetness, has citrus. Very easy drinking. Good, well brewed beer, but just a little boring.

Une très belle bière houblonnée et fruitée, super raffraîchissante et désaltérante.

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 (2832) - 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.

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.
