3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at CASK Brighton. It pours amber, with a bubbly white head. The nose is floral, honey, straw and grass. The taste is straw, resin, floral, leather, grass, leaf, pepper and a touch of honey, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A bit so-so by Thornbridge’s high standards.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ CPK. Google tells me that Thornbridge made this to celebrate a documentary film festival in Sheffield. The appearance is clear, deep amber orange with a tight creamy white head. The nose is very light bready malt, strawberry fruits and cut grass. The taste is similarly light. Airy flowers, watered-down fruit squash. Light dry hoppy finish. The mouthfeel’s a bit slick. Light. Overall, a smooth drinker that’s a bit underweight in the flavor department. Still, it’s not bad at all.
