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%

Pale yellow pour with descent head. Slightly sweet and a touch hoppy nose. Not nearly as stong as most pale ales. Nice light easy start that flows well followed b the pale ale attack (see previous rates). Very low carbonation. Wtf the bubbles aren’t moving. Seriously they dont float upward. Rather like this though still not a fan of that bite at the end.

fajry (1050) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 30, 2015
Fľaša. Priesvitná zlatá farba, biela pena. Vôňa krásna citrusová, najmä liči, v pozadí chmeľ. Chuť sladová, sladká, citrusová, jemne mandarinky a pozadie liči. Pekná horká dochuť. Plnšie telo, stredná nasýtenosť. Veľmi piteľné.

Ysok02 (341) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2015
Une bičre trčs raffraîchissante, houblonnée et fruitée avec une belle bouche amčre qui évoque presque une IPA, idéale pour entamer une soirée.

Scottishchris (409) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle from beerhive. Very pale gold, straw, white fluffy head. Grass, flowers and dough. Nice soft fizz without the harshness that Thornbridge sometimes have in the bottle. Light body, bitter with grassy floral finish. Very refreshing and a bit different. Good stuff.

Lele (236) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 5, 2015
ASPETTO: giallo chiarissimo con lievi tonalitŕ verdastre. Molto limpida. Schiuma bianca, fine, abbastanza abbondante e persistente (ne rimane sempre un po’). AROMA: molto gradevole e abbastanza accentuato. Luppolo, resinoso, lieve terriccio, erba tagliata. GUSTO: all’abbocco si avvertono chiarissimi sentori di frutta tropicale, per poi lascia spazio ad un amaro erbaceo e luppolato, che non č assolutamente invadente. Ripulisce benissimo la bocca e fa il suo sporco lavoro di dissetare. Carbonizzazione abbastanza bassa (forse un po’ troppo per lo stile) e corpo decisamente leggero. CONCLUSIONE: ancora una volta la Thornbridge stupisce per il suo equilibrio e la sua pulizia. In bocca non esplode nei sapori, ma forse non voleva neanche farlo, forse voleva solo dissetare con piacere...e ci č riuscita!
