Bottle shared at chriso’s pre-GBBF shindig 2013 - London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a foamy white head. Doughy bread on the nose. Light-medium sweet flavor with more doughy, pale bread, light vegetable notes, faint bittering hay. Light in body with fine to average carbonation. Simple finish with more doughy bread and hay. Meh, drinkable.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is light pear, some paper. A bit of summery lemon citrus. The taste is one again pretty paper. Lemon poppyseed cake. Little else. Light body, soft carbonation. Meh-inducing.

Light and gentle, unremarkable, nice colour, would probably be a great cool beer on a hot day.

April 2010: I wrote this. Thwaites seem to be producing more and more bottled beers, I am sure some are almost identical, but with slight changes and a diferent name: Clear 500ml bottle, best before 7th June 2010, drank and reviewed 25th April 2010. Poured into a Batemans badged pint sleeve. I knew the beer was going to be a pale golden colour (clear glass bottle, remember?). On top was an off-white head, heavy at first but soon thin and a collar.It is claimed to be ’light and refreshing’ and it is, both in the smell and taste, body wise too. A mixed aroma of hop and biscuity malts slowly leave the glass as you sniff the smells, nothing overly powerful, but enough to let you know this is an ale and not a lager. Fairly ’fizzy’, so well carbonated with the alcohol sitting well back behind the flavours which re-confirmed the smells, namely a good blend of hop and biscuity malt tastes. I like the beers from Thwaites, even if they are sometimes a bit ’same-ish’, always good value, which is a quality I look for when buying bottled beers.

rauchbier (3800) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2010
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Barton upon Humber. Gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Gentle floral hop in the nose with a touch of skunkiness, soft and slightly caramel sweet in the mouth with a background restrained hop bitterness, brief sweetness lingers in the finish but dry bitterness stays longest.
