COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%

on tap at Kraftwork - Bright golden color, very polished with a thick, foamy white head. Aromas of grapefruit skin really kick it into the "American Pale Ale" genre. Crisp, sharp bubbles (a bit coarse on the palate) dominate the mouthfeel. Flavors of grapefruit are predominant, but not overly aggressive like some IPAs. Good balance with a clean, crisp and pleasant finish. This may be the best English brewed Pale Ale that I’ve had on my American IPA loving palate.

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

Towey1989 (124) - 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.

pivnizub (9156) - 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…
