Cask: Occasional.
Thornbridge Brother Rabbit (4%) - an early spring ale. Hopped with three classic American hops: Cascade, Chinook and Centennial (N.B. J D Wetherspoons festival programme October 2011 states hops are Amarillo and Cascade). Gold in colour with tropical fruits and orange sherbet dominating the aroma. Medium body with a clean firm bitterness to balance a great thirst quenching beer.

WASW (50) - - APR 24, 2012
A very smooth beer. Aroma and appearance and all that much but the flavour offers a tasty tartness with a clean and bitter finish. A nice beer to begin, but certainly not end, a night with.

minutemat (4635) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2016
Cask @ The Three Fishes, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold, foamy white head. Aroma is very light floral citrus. Taste is a little disappointing, weak dried fruit, soft sweet malts. Fades away too easily. A rather lacklustre golden ale.

Smithld1 (200) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Cask at the rake. I dont mind this. Clings nicely to the glass. Pretty boring I must admit. Sessionable

MarcoDL (4309) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015
Cask at Thornbridge. Aroma of grain mostly. Taste has grain as well, with lots of nasty soap. This is a miss. Thin body.

Turtles (2186) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Cask @ Bishops Arms Hornsgatan. Almost clear pale golden, foamy white head, weak lacing. Floral hops with sweet peach aroma. Light mouthfeel watery and juicy. Nice tropical fruit and bubbelgum taste, refreshing without any deep taste.

jjsint (2478) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Gravity cask at the 2015 Red Lion Beer Festival, Histon. Light gold with the tiniest suggestion of head. Butterscotch, hay and sulphur in the aroma. An unwelcome hint of bile. Taste is better. Agreeably bittersweet with a gentle finish. Medium oily body. A surprisingly pedestrian golden from this brilliant brewery.

From cask. Pours clear and light yellow, small white head. Aroma is citrusy and slight peachy hoppy. Crisp fruity. Smooth hoppy and lingering citrusy finish. Crisp fruity, mellow and smooth fruity finish.
