COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special.
The Thornbridge Sequoia American Amber Ale has beautiful citrus and pine notes that come from our generous additions of Amarillo, Centennial and Chinook hops. It is smooth and velvety in the mouth with the toasted malts giving it a medium body with hints of roasted hazelnut, toffee and caramel malt flavours. Sequoia, a beautiful beer for all occasions!

jjsint (728) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Cask @ Euston Tap. Amber/copper with white head and loadsa lacing. Spruce and mango aroma. Muted bitter taste, allowing the hop profile to shine but not overwhelm. Thin palette. This is a fairly staid beer, but works well enough.

Sigmund (5010) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2014
On tap at Fermentoren, Aarhus. For once I pass on writing own comments, and choose simply to quote the brewery’s tasting notes, which seemed quite accurate to me: "The Thornbridge Sequoia American Amber Ale has beautiful citrus and pine notes that come from our generous additions of Amarillo, Centennial and Chinook hops. It is smooth and velvety in the mouth with the toasted malts giving it a medium body with hints of roasted hazelnut, toffee and caramel malt flavours. Sequoia, a beautiful beer for all occasions!"
