Crille (90) - Varberg, - JUL 21, 2013
Clear golden color with a white head. The nose is of citrus, yeast and some malt sweetness. The flavors is of grass and malt. Very light bodied beer. Great for a low alc beer, but not good enough for a Thornbridge..

pivnizub (9423) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle: Pale golden, lively carbonation, big and stable rocky hite head; mild but distinctive citrussy and slightly piney nose; light bodied and Slim, but not thin, moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour; mild to moderate fresh and lingering citrussy-hoppy finish. Almost the perfect Sommer-Bier...

KansaiBeerLvrs (3344) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Cask at Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell. Clear very pale gold with a mild grassy green herbal hop nose. Smooth light body, the taste is grassy, earthy, hay and green hop bitterness. Refreshing but sort of dull.

bartlebier (2674) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2015
500ml bottle bb05/2016 hauled from Sheffield by D&M up to the P-Worm, ta! - Gently seductive lemon balm, grapefruit infusion, Lady Grey tea nose. Delicate, thin, ultra-sessionable in mouthfeel, transporting an ice tea mix of bitter lemon, blossom in taste with a late herbal hop finish. - goes down clean and easy in a few gulps with a well-dosed citrus zing. The essence of an unusually hot Northern summer in a glass indeed!

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2015
Cask at The Craft Beer Co. Low fluffy white lasting head. Clear thin looking yellow body. Aroma, well actually I couldn’t smell anything. Mild fruity straw flavor with little hops bitterness and a short finish. Rather boring.

rlgk (14380) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2015
At Craft Clerkenwell, London. Clear pale yellow beer with almost no head. Fruity hoppy spicy aroma, grapes, breads, some biscuits. Fruity spicy hop flavor, grassy, herbal, some floral notes. Kinda laid back but also kinda pleasant.

jjsint (1462) - 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.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 50cl bottle at Frits, Amsterdam. Clear golden with a small white soapy head. Light body with low to moderate carbonation. Subtle bitter and sweet tones. Grass, citrus, pine and some herbs. A tasty refreshing ale.

Tried in bottle. Bought in Austria at Tribaun. Colour is pale gold with a white head with poor retention. Aroma is grassy, citrus and fruity. Taste is floral, grassy, grainy and citrus. Body is light with medium carbonation. Very nice light hops finish. Like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!
