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!

Not a huge amount going on here, tasty enough amber ale, lightly sweet and somewhat tangy and bitter.

yngwie (14905) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Almost clear in the glass, amber in color and with a finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is of the malty kind, caramel and some bread and vienna malts, with a pleasant citrusy hoppyness. The flavor is pretty much the same, with lots of maltyness in the back, and a citrusy, piney hoppyness up front. Soft bitterness. Medium to full body and a very soft carbonation. Lasting balanced finish. Not very interesting this one, but still quite solid. 150524
