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!

Kita (1230) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear deep amber color with medium frothy off-white head, fair lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of peach, melon, citrus, pine and toffee. Taste starts with light sweet caramel, follows refreshing fruity with notes of nuts and honey, mild spicy mouthfeel and medium bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Could be very quaffable everyday beer, although some thickness in palate would fit in...

W aromacie lekkie muśnięcie czerwonych owoców, słodowo - biszkoptowy z lekkim diacetylem. W smaku łagodne, słodowe, biszkopt z lekką owocową nutą, niska goryczka. Przyjemne, do sączenia w większych ilościach.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2014
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear looking one. It’s deep dark golden almost a little bronze I color and it has a nice big lasting off-white head that’s leaving some nice lacings down the sides of the glass. Smells nice also. It’s candy sweet in a way, well hopped with fresh citrus tones, something mildly roasted and a little bit of generic fruit. Quite pleasant to nose and it’s not directly unpleasant to taste either. It’s quite thin and a bit to light IMO in the mouth this, while its above average on the bubbles. Lots of hops here. It needs more body and sweetness and to justify the bitterness. Quite fresh grassy, lots of nice citrus tones in the taste also. Some thin watery caramel and a little bit of fruity flavors in the finish. A bit like melon fruitiness. Yeah, it’s nice to nip at here in the sun. 09.04.2014
