Wild Swan is white gold in colour with aromas of light bitter lemon, a hint of herbs and a subtle spiciness. A great refreshing beer.

Nonshaugen (461) - Fetsund, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2016
50 cl bottle. Clear, very light greenish yellow / straw colour, medium white head, nice lacing, lively carbonation. Aroma is lemony and grassy, wheat at the back. Lively carbonated mouthfeel, bitter but a bit watery due to the low ABV. Taste is citrus, grass and hay, with a light malty backbone. Crisp and refreshing, perfect beer on a hot day, should pair up well with some bbq spicy chicken.

LazyPyro (595) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear and very pale yellow colour with a small white head, very lively carbonation. Aroma is light hoppy, citrus, lemon, grassy. Taste is also quite light, sweetish malt, citrus fruit and lemon flavours, herbal. Slightly watery texture, and overall quite a light and refreshing beer if not particularly exciting.

BenL8 (73) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 3, 2016
Pours clear pale straw. Aroma is very pleasant and spicy and fruity. Hops is noticeable and herbal and gives it a nice aroma all in all. Flavour is a little watery but nice for the 3.5%. Quite hoppy, especially in the aftertaste, fruity and light overall. Nice lightweight.

Refreshing, very hoppy yet still mild, but not really that remarkable. An okay summer beer if you do not expect too much.

tmrmwel (1829) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow, with a nice creamy head. Pleasant crisp and hoppy aroma, which despite a slight metallic bite showcase herbs and citrusy notes, as well as fresh tropical notes of litchi and kiwis. Light body, with fizzy carbonation. Flavour is crisp herbal hops, with citrus, litchi, berries and grassy notes, as well as some balancing, bready malts. Crisp and quaffable,with an almost pilsnerish touch to it.

Cask @ Small Bar, Bristol. Clear golden colour with a small but stable white head. It’s got a light nose and taste of cereal malts, some lemony citrus and peppery spiciness. Smooth and sessionable with a light body and carbonation.

Delft 29-04-2016, flink gegist Enorme tegenvaller! Andere bieren van Thornbridge tot nu toe super. Dit is echt een slap biertje. Waterig en weinig smaak aan. Citrus smaak maar alles behalve bijzonder.
