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!

King_Alex_II (338) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Amber clear color with little foam. Malty smell. The taste is as malty as it is bitter. A bit weird at first, but it is actually quite good, but I wouldn’t call it balanced or well thought through.

Fruits, malt, citrus and pine in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Slightly dry and bitter in the finish. Overall a nicely refreshing and bitter Amber Ale, a bit watery, but really good for the ABV.

Marstonlad (525) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Pours fairly clear amber with a huge frothy head. The aroma is abundantly fruity with American style fresh fruitiness dominating and some sweetish toasty maltiness appearing in the background, delivers a promising first impression. Taste starts light sweet, later hoppier; though bitterness does not rise too much, as is appropriate for this style. Fruitier notes are checked by toasty, nutty maltiness with a touch of caramel; the end result is balanced. The palate is light to medium bodied, slick and average in carbonation. Solid amber ale, not brutally hoppy or richly malty but these kind of ales rarely are.
