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.

Bottle 50 cl. Slightly hazy pale golden color, thin bubbly white head. Light hoppy and fruity in aroma. Fruity, wild berries and light grassy bitterness in taste. Quite pleasant mildness and berries in aftertaste.

Clear golden yellow with short lived white head. Citrus aromas and taste, crisp, refreshing... nice amount of bitterness. Bit watery, but to be expected with a 3.5% beer. Very good for what it is though. Perfect after my hot day working in the garden!

Enticing citrus aroma in a light straw pour. Surprisingly full bodied for the strength with a nicely balanced flavour and clean but restrained finish.

Christian (11786) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2015
Tap takeover at Christian Firtal. Yellow with a small white head. Fruity hop aroma with gooseberry and kiwi. Sweet and slightly thin fruity flavour with lovely fruity character. Served on keg, could easily be better on cask...

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
500ml bottle purchased from Waitrose, drunk at home. Pale yellow, no noticeable head but heavily carbonated. Lemonade aroma, with a suggestion of something more complex such as tropical fruit. Nicely balanced taste, quite sweet with zingy hoppy bitterness. The heavy carbonation pays off in the mouthfeel. Not the greatest of Thornbridge beers but enjoyable enough for sure.

Plovmand (6992) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2015
From tap. It pours slightly hazy yellow with a creamy white head. The aroma is flowery hoppy with pale malty notes. Refreshing grassy and flowery flavor. Light peach and slightly herbal. Citrus in the finish. Tickling palate.
