4th August 2010. GBBF.
Hazy gold beer with a good off white head. Light semi dry palate. Floral sweetness with light orange hops. The flowers dominate the hops. Finishes a tad too dry but a nice beer.

Cask at the Euston Tap. Mostly clear, vibrant gold with a dense, pure white, creamy head. Honey, bready malts, orange citrus hops in the nose. Lightly sweet with cereal, mild veggies, earthy and floral bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Hops linger in the throat to finish, with mild warmth and caramel malts. Quite nice.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2010 Cask gravity at Reading BF 09. A new Thornbridge beer for me is a real event, so imagine my disappointment when this lacked some of the more interesting flavours, aromas and qualities that the breweries other beers do. Lovely mid brown colour, lasting beige head. Soe soft citrus hop on aroma. OK malts in mouth. Toffee-ish. Some plummy fruit on finish. OK, but not as exciting as some of their other beers. 636312 3.0/5.0 Re-rate GBBF 2010 Gold, lasting beige hea. Some biscuit, some toffee, bit of English yeast. Lovely drinking beer. Easy on the swallow.
