Cask & Cold Filtered Bottle; Regular.
Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

mt_hall (147) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Bottled. Clear with a light gold colour and a medium sized, foamy, off-white head that was soon gone. Subtle aromas of grass and yellow fruit. Sweet fruit in the mouth at the start (pineapple?), then a dry, earthy finish. Clean and well-balanced. Good, but would have liked a little more body.

Gbgbrouge (291) - SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2015
From tap, hazy pale yellow with low head. Aroma is very fruity with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, some cereal. Taste is bitter with a very light malt body leading to a long ang lingering bitter finish. Taste is wonderfully fresh and fruity, light and refreshing.

Très bon arôme de houblon. Goût houblonné. Bière légère. Agréable à boire mais sans grande spécificité.

Towey1989 (302) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple, grapefruit, melon and herbs. Taste of bitter grapefruit and sweet pineapple and lemon citrus plus herbal tones. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A balanced citrusy hop finish. A good, flavourful pale ale.

50cl bottle bought at Waitrose in Westfields, Shepherds Bush. Pale golden colour - clear. Very light grassy malt aroma. Taste of citrus - grapefruit and lime - almost marmalade in character. Bitter but a very fruity hopped pale ale. Pretty nice.

pivnizub (9160) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle:Pale greenish golden, small, but stable white lacy head; bitter-sweet nose of exotic fruits, mainly citrussy; moderate and clean bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, a bit fizzy; lingering citrussy and pale-malty finish. O.K. and refreshing, but surely not the best Thornbridge product…

Holmen2 (1550) - NORWAY - FEB 9, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 09.02.15. Very pale, clear yellow. Aroma of lemongrass and lime. Perhaps a slight hint of CP. Similar taste, with lime marmelade and succade. Medium bitterness in long aftertaste.
