American Pale Ale
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.

Beer4000 (4522) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2014
On tap @ Cardinal. Unclear orange body with a dense off-white head. Medium strong aroma of light and soft malt with citric fruit. Flavor is nice and easy refreshing fruity, light malty, some caramel, peaches and apricot. OK body and a bit short in aftertaste. Nice and uncomplicated thirst quencher.

worldbeertaste (1670) - AUSTRIA - OCT 11, 2014
Medium gold with a thin, lasting, lacy, creamy head. Soft fruitiness with citrus, and a nice full creamy maltiness. Full oily dry body with soft carbonation. Sweet fully malty taste with nice fruit and a dry pine citrus finish. Delicious and inviting beer. Like other Thornbridge beers it is perfectly well balanced. As soon as I take a sip, I want more.

Freaky_tiki (578) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Pours a sudsy tangerine dream into the glass. For a pale ale, it is lost somewhere in the Atlantic: not quite hoppy enough for an APA but more aggressive than the English original. And I’m ok with that. The most interesting thing here is the floral citrus note -- lets get all wine critic fancy & call it orange blossom -- that sustains throughout each sip.

Nice pale ale, with perfect aroma.. However a bit too citrussy for my taste and a bit too dry. But nice.
