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!

Marduk (2579) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2014
Tap. Clear redish coolor. Medium size, yellow head, stays. Pine, citrus, orange, sweet, fruity aroma. Fruity, grainy, mild pine in taste. Medium bitterness. Light body and maybe bit thin, but as a summer beer very drinkable.

Garrold (1117) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Beeches of Walkley, Sheffield. Amber colour. Thin, lasting, off white head. Comes across fresher and hoppier than any time I’ve had this on cask or keg. Some pine. Very light nuttiness, maybe. Dry, bitter finish.

JohnCook101 (302) - - MAY 17, 2014
Draft. Fairly dark, clear copper. Small white head leaving a good amount of lacing. Aroma is mild and malty. Malt and pine flavours, some citrus, moderately sweet with an equal amount of bitterness. Reasonably well balanced. Decent but unremarkable.

Swaroga (1259) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : śliczny, przejrzysty kolor bursztynowy o odcieniach czerwieni i jasnego brązu. Piana jest średniej wielkości o kolorze brudnej bieli. NOS : zapach ma piwo bardzo czysty, jakby pozbawiony estrów. Słodowe nuty to delikatna tarta i karmel. Do tego dochodzi herbata i mocne aromaty cytrusowe i jałowca. Tak naprawdę to zapach piwa przypomina świeżo otwarty chmiel. Brawo za utrwalenie tego smaku w piwie. USTA : piwo jest delikatnie gazowane o wodnistej konsystencji. Delikatnie puszyste jak miękka woda. Piwo jest umiarkowanie słodkie o nutach słodowych wypełniających jedynie tło. Tutaj znowu można wyczuć nuty herbaciane. Do tego dochodzą nuty cytrusów takich jak grejpfrut i gorzka pomarańcza. Ale również delikatnie wyczuwalne jest jabłko. Gorzkość piwa jest średnia i mimo, że dominuje na końcu, jej wytrwałość jest średnia i nie zapycha kubków smakowych. ODCZUCIA : jest to wyjątkowo eleganckie piwo. Tak jakby czyste i klarowne od wyglądu po smak. Świetnie wyeksponowane aromaty chmielu jak widać nie koniecznie muszą być przesadnie gorzkie. Mistrzowsko chmielone. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 8/10

gunnar (5129) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from Matkroken, Stokka. Pours clear deep amber with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is light sweet caramel and some piney and flowery hops. Taste is moderate sweet, caramel and bready malts,high carbonation lifts the light dry finish, where there is some good mineralic piney hops, good bodied considering the abv, a pleasant enough amber ale.
