mcberko (19173) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 1, 2013
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma of cereal malts, straw and a little corn. Flavour brings out dry cereal malts, straw, corn and some crackery malts. Very light and refreshing, with a nice balance. Pretty standard stuff, but well-made for what it is.

Great pale ale, fruity with a decent amount of hops. Very easy to drink and very enjoyable. Very subtle

Cokemonkey11 (1106) - - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle. Pale IPA appearance with nice carbonation and a medium foam residing. Scent is nice fruity, sweet notes. Taste is very smooth ale in spite of quite alpha bitterness. Nice sharp zesty and citrus peel properties. Finish consistent. Understated and nicely complex. Great.

3.4
phfyysik (1461) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 4, 2017
Pours amber with medium white head. Aroma is dry, hay, sand, fruits, some citrus, dust, tangerine, some crispy biscuit. Taste is fresh, citrus, tangerine, dry, some metal sides, hay, some tropical fruits, light copper. Nice beer!

Mpuntmuts (334) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 From tap at 't Taphuys Tilburg. Yellow almost clear with medium head. Aroma of hops, some tropic fruits and grapefruit. Taste is pretty much the same with a sweet backthroat sweet linger. Mouthfeel is quite thin along with okay bubblies. Drinkable pale but I'm not overwhelmed.

3.6
blackisle (2847) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2017
Bottle 33cl. @home poured into a shaker. Clear medium golden, good two finger creamy off-white head, fairly lasting, good lacing; aroma pale malts, orange, pomelo, tangerine, grass; smooth taste, medium sweet and bitter, malty, grapefruit, tangerine, hoppy; bit short bittersweet aftertaste, orange pith, light piney notes; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation; fresh and clean, easy to drink.

3.2
donalg (71) - Cork, IRELAND - OCT 8, 2017
330ml bottle from Matsons in Cork. Pours straw colour, very clear with white thin head. Orange and citrus aroma. Favours of orange, pineapple, citrus and biscuit. Low to medium bitterness, nice beer with plenty of flavour but didn't blow me away.

sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2017
Color fo marmalade with an off-white head. Dampened aroma. Can definitely taste the apricots, but they taste like they've gone a bit off. Not very harmonious. Medium bodied.

3.1
uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2017
Golden, slightly hazy. Small head. Tropical fruit aromas. Tart, bright. Grainy finish.

3.3
Stew41 (2093) - Phuket, THAILAND - SEP 16, 2017
Dry and subtle but quite classical. Pepper and dry stones drive great balance whereas a hint of green fruits might point to the ‘APA’ designator. Really good drinking.

3.3
p0urmeac0ld0ne (310) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - SEP 15, 2017
Muted IPA, very tasty and very juicy, however this is a bit understated, which is suprising for Thornbridge.
