foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, - DEC 14, 2012
Very pale yellow. Aroma is subtle pine and grapefruit. Loads more grapefruit in the mouth, very pleasant bitterness. Not a lot of depth but this is good easy drinking ale. And look - I’ve drunk most of it.

LazyPyro (486) - 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 (52) - 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 (1699) - 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.

floydian1 (1338) - FNQ, Australia, - JUN 27, 2016
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.

Lime juice. Citrus peel. Taste is light bitter. Some dryness. Light body. Crisp carbonation. Light bitter finish, that dries out at the end.

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.

Good, but very simple summer ale. Light pale color with a foam that goes away quickly. Aroma of hops and herbs. Light hops, cut grass, white bread in the taste.
