3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle bought from Blue Glass, Bedford. Consumed in the comfort of my own dwelling. Germany are beating Brazil 7-0. Back to the beer: the colour is light reddish-brown. Scent of caramel malt and rosehips. Taste is surprisingly fruity and sweet at the front, with a slight bitter edge in the finish and aftertaste. Thin palette, but the carbonation is pleasant on the lips. Not many amber lagers are better than this, a good take on a fairly ordinary style.

An okay beer from Thornbridge, they are specialized in ipas and english ales, this one is not so good but however okay, lot of grains taste, wheat, citrus.

Lager rossa con abondante schiuma bianca. Al naso note fruttate e caramellose. In bocca corpo medio e bilanciatura giusta. Sapore maltato con amaro poco persistente. Finale aromatico lungo. Bevuta in botiglia a LLeida nel On The Rocks....peccato che la birra era un po vecchia.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark amber, creamy beige head. Smell of caramel, dark fruits, dark malts, dried fruits, hints of citrus. Moderate sweet, some caramel, some dark fruits; goes quite fast over to a medium bitter finish of resins and green leafs. Quite straight forward, not much going on here. Not my favourite from this brewery

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours dark tan colour, thin head. Lovely strong malty flavours, very rich and deep in flavour - I normally tend to enjoy Thornbridge's Pale Ales more than their other styles but this is a really nice departure

Pours a clear orange/brown with a dense tan head. The smell is rich, toasted malt, caramel, earth. The taste is rich and roast, some fruit, some caramel sweetness and a dry crisp counterbalance at the end. Light + in body with nice tight carbonation.

Bottle at le mondiale 2014.
Uber malty aroma, smell like fresh mash in the kettle, loads of fresh cereals and grains, its just lovely, the hops appear in the end in the form of light grassy notes. I could drink this everyday, just a great daily drinking beer,
