COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

wheresthepath (2318) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Cask at Gilbert’s, Buxton. Pale gold with a middling white head. Floral lemon up front. Lots of peach follows. Quite sweet. Pleasant, but could just use a tad more hop bite to balance it.

3.5
DavyK (132) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2017
Cask at Redmond’s of Dennistoun. Bright aroma, but not too strong. Low carbonation and thin lacing, hit of lemon and sherbet as you sip. Good clean dust of US hops, but very easy going. Nice cask mesh ale...

The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2017
Cask handpull at Draft House Hammersmith as Thornbridge Brother Rabbit, 4%. Pours pale golden, still and pretty clear with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is soft and biscuity, light mango notes. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is subtle with gooseberry, lychee, stones, touch of grapefruit. All very toned down but very drinkable indeed. I like it.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2017 Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Golden colour. White foam head fading to light lacing. Not too much aroma, slightly fruity if anything. Fruity taste, apples, slightly tart with pleasant bitter finish. Easy drinking.

Cask Pint – JDW Fest Autumn 2011 in Oct 2011 - Pale Gold in colour. Very Fruity; citrus grapefruit and tropical fruit. Hoppy; grassy and resinous hops, hint of pine. Malty; toasty malts. Good fruit/hop/malt balance. Mildly bitter-sweet fruity hoppy throughout. Dry in the finish. Very drinkable. (2011-10-12)

Cask at Birmingham Beer Festival 2016; golden yellow pour with a thin white head, aroma has light citrus, taste has a hint of honey, some straw, quite refreshing,

2.8
minutemat (5401) - 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 (277) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Cask at the rake. I don’t mind this. Clings nicely to the glass. Pretty boring I must admit. Sessionable
