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.

Cask from greystones, Sheffield. Looks (and is) flat, no head to speak of. Smells great of tropical fruits and wheat. Tastes very mild, and is infinitly drinkable. As previously stated is entirely flat. Good session ale.

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.

Maersk (110) - MOLDOVA - FEB 7, 2016
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.

500 ml bottle, BB date 04.04.2014, from Vaaland, Bryne. ABV is 3.5%. Crystal clear and very pale yellow colour, large white head. Moderate but pleasant aroma of crushed gooseberries, herbs and citrus. Light bodied as expected, medium dry and crisp, with moderate notes of herbal hops.

dnicolaescu (1685) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 4, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL. Pale straw, small white head. Aroma feel watery, but not hopelessly. Mostly grassy and lemony, some fruity and flowery notes, white bread and a touch honey sweetness. The taste is also on the verge of being watery. Hops upfront, herbal and lemony, some CO2 acidity. Almost now malts and a moderate grassy and piney finish. Not bad for its gravity.

King_Alex_II (1095) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Clear, very pale yellow color with foam layer. The smell is light and fresh flowery with citrus flavor. The taste is light and crisp with little body and a full flavor of fruity flowery hopping. Light dry and tiny bit acidic aftertaste. Great beer especially in the range of low abv beers.

SinH4 (2306) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2015
Clear pale golden color with white head. Aroma is fruity, lemony, some sweeter tropical fruits. Light malts & straw behind it. Taste is more lemons and tropical fruits, light malts & straw backbone. Very refreshing. Fizzy carbonation. A good summer aperitif.

Lonick (1143) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Cask @The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Pours yellow, pale yellow, white head. Nose is bland, waited 5 minutes still bland, slight grapefruit, some cheese, touch of lemon but you have to go hunting out these smells.Taste is like lemon cordial, cheap lemon and lime cordial, touch of caramel at the end. Without checking i believe this to be the worst Thornbridge beer i’ve ever tasted and i’m a big fan.
