Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Deep golden. Citric grapefruity hop aroma. Dense and sweet, yet never fruity . Quite intense hoppiness with very sweet buttery malt. Tastes like 9%, drinks like 4%. Thornbridge Hall do great stuff!

wyzzywyz22 (1945) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Cask, Bodega, Newcastle Upon Tyne. This had a definite whiff of quality about it. Golden colour with a thin white head. Inticing aroma with bags of citrus and hop. Just knew I was going to like this. Very well balanced aromatic hop in the flavour and just very drinkable. Wish I could get this on a regular basis.
