Golden in colour Chiron offers a superb balance of tart hops, juicy malt and tangy fruit while the lingering finish offers a hint of apricots and tangerines before a biscuity malt and hoppy finish.

500ml Bottle. Im going to try and not rave about this beer too much as thats all I seem to do withThornbridge beers. Its aroma is lemon, hints of spices and deep malty bisuitness (new word there!) It pours a cloudy golden amber with a (unusually for Thornbridge) fast disappearing head. It tastes surprisingly caramelly with more lemon and a slightly citrus bitter finish. From the brewery’s description I was expecting a lighter feel,but I was not disapointed with what I got. Lots of character and a highly recommended beer

Poured a bubbly golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of zesty citrus. Medium body, flavour of refreshing citrus, some Caribbean fruit mixed with tangerine and a lingering, dry but sweet finish.

ciaranc (706) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 21, 2013
Golden coloured, rocky white head. Slight haziness. Aroma is biscuity caramel, a little spice and resiny summer fruits from the hops. Fantastic. Nice caramel flavour in the taste, more fruit and some subtle zesty bitterness toward the finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Medium lasting finish which is quite sweet with a little cinnamon spice.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. Orange-gold color with a fine head. Grassy, citrus orange aroma, big dry hopping. Sweet orange flavor, biscuits, grass, tasty dry hopping. Great balance, very fruits—peach and melon, not sweet, goes dry from there, though not too bitter. Excellent.

dexcansino (390) - Andalucía, SPAIN - AUG 16, 2013
Cerveza dorada transparente. Según mis preferencias prefiero las APA más amargas. Es bastante floral, cítrica. Pero es muy ligera, refrescante y bebible. Una muy buena opción para comenzar e ir abriendo boca.

Lore (823) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 9, 2013
golden colour, medium white head;aroma of citrus and pine; taste is also dominated by citrussy hops with pine resin and hints of honey-like sweetness; not too complex beer, but well-ballanced and quite drinkable.

Dobre i o szerokiej palecie nut chmielowych, mam wrazenie ze to IPA. Piana solidna czapowata, kolor jasno zloty i przejrzysty. Zapach wiosennych kwiatow. W smaku piwo jest gozkawe i delikatne zarazem, a w glownej roli to smak chmielu amerykanskiego
