3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Euston Tap. Looks great - deep red-brown with a clingy white head, clean and light citrus and peppery hops on the nose, initial toffee character is a little muted, but then it opens up a bit, with juicy nut and marmalade notes. Lingering citrus bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (@Cask Pub&Kitchen, Pimlico): Deep golden with a amber sheen, hazy, small foamy layer, toasty-malty nose with a certain amount of citrussy-juicy hops; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied and quite soft; a slight tartness in the delicately malty and citrussy finish: Good, but more british than american influences detectable...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask at The Jolly Butchers, Stoke Newington. Nice colour, dark malts, lean hops but tastes a little watered down. Not up to normal Thornbridge quality i must say.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Pine-y hops blend into lean caramel malts in this smooth quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the dark amber.
-Bitterness is levelled to the rest of the brew’s delicate intensity. These may be American hops, but the dosage is British.
-Malts are also lightly toasted.
-Hops and fermentation develop apricot-like notes.
-This may be simple and very effective, but it is not memorable at all.
On cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen.

Cask @ cbc brixton. Pours slightly cloudy amber. Pleasant fruity aroma. Veggie earthiness, malt and caramel with some citrus in there too. Nice.

Cask@ Blue Stoops Chesterfield. This seems to be a popular one but it doesn,t float my boat. Powerful aroma that becomes a bit too powerful,if you know what I mean. The taste is interesting to start with,but after a while becomes too elderflower and not much else. I,m not sure we need the yanks to teach us anything about beer...or cars...or planes.....
