The Thornbridge Sequoia American Amber Ale has beautiful citrus and pine notes that come from our generous additions of Amarillo, Centennial and Chinook hops. It is smooth and velvety in the mouth with the toasted malts giving it a medium body with hints of roasted hazelnut, toffee and caramel malt flavours. Sequoia, a beautiful beer for all occasions!

4.5%ABV. Amber. Tapped out amber. 12ºSRM. Nose has citrus, mandarin oranges and lychees. Sweet and citrusy. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has light toast, wheat thins, crackers. Hops are floral, grassy. Finish is brief. Overall more like a rye IPA instead of a good amber.
