Jolly Butchers. Slightly hazy brown beer, residual white head. Light semi dry palate. Tiny bit of caramel malt. Vague red fruit notes in the background. Semi dry finish with mild bitterness. Occasionally Thornbridge make me go ’wow’ and occasionally they invoke a ’meh’. This is the latter!

Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Clear chestnut. Lasting bubbly beige. Biscuit peppery hop ESB aroma. Very good satisfying beer with good peppery black hop. Really quite biting on finish. Good though. Pretty much a recraetion of Fullers ESB but slightly better. Not really my style. Lacks condition. Good flavours but would be even better in good nick

DruncanVeasey (8401) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Cask handpull, The Shoes, Nuneaton (BIG new addition to the Nuneaton/North Warwickshire circuit; 10+ handpulls, 3 of them Thornbridge by the looks of it.)....Deep coppery orange with a slim disc of froth. Red apple and dried apricot aroma. Soapy bitterness, deep malt base, husk, plastic hints. Varnished digestive linger. Hugely ordinary.

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2011
Fra cask på White Horse, Parsons Green 20 Mai 11. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum som setter nivåmerker på glasset. God fruktig aroma. Smaken er tung fruktig. Ettersmaken det samme. Litt kjedelig - men god.

Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Cask at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011. Deep orange amber. Signature Thornbridge smooth, clean taste. Some ginger, biscuity malt with a light floral hop dancing over the top. Hints of violets and elderflower.
