Cask: Golden blonde colour. For a beer this light, it has a very fine creamy texture, not watery at all. Mild earthy hoppiness, and very balanced overall. Not a lot going on, still a thoroughly well-made beer.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours very light golden colour. Thin white head. Flavours very subtle - fruits. Very summery and enjoyable. Leaves you pining for Thornbridge's bolder, hoppier beers though.

spacecube (760) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Pint at Kirkstall Bridge, Pours a lemony hazy golden brown, with a foamy white head. Aroma is subtle with grainy malt and hints of lemon citrus, easy to drink, unspectacular, hoped for more flavour.

Very pale yellow beer with very little head. Scent is of tangy lemon but it’s very faint. The beer is a little bit bubbly and that certainly hits the tongue. After that it’s hops and bitter fruit but it’s a bit tart and a touch on the watery side too. Not my cup of tea.

Pale yellow with plenty of head. Light lemon aroma. Taste mildly sweet, sour & bitter. Short carbonation. Fairly thin mouthfeel. Finish decent, subtle bitter. For the abv very good.

mike_77 (2987) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2014
Pale, straw blond colour. Citrusy hop aroma. Texture thin. Quite gassy. Light, fresh flavour with citrus hop and light bitterness. Good session beer for a warm day.

Heldere citroengele kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, iets citrus. Smaakt lekker bitter, fris, hop, citrus. Beetje kruiden. Smaakt goed voor laag percentage.
