Cask: Golden blonde colour. For a beer this light, it has a very fine creamy texture, not watery at all. Mild earthy hoppiness, and very balanced overall. Not a lot going on, still a thoroughly well-made beer.

Very weak and very muted, but in a somewhat delicate way. Not bad, but not the best from Thornbridge, by a long shot.

I am usually a fan of Thronbridge but was rather led down by this beer. It's low aromatic and drinks like a rather plain ale.

sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2017
Clear lemon yellow with no head. Mild aroma with hints of lemon and grain. Hoppy flavor leaving a strong bitter aftertaste. Would be decent on a hot day; on a cold Durham autumn evening, it's unremarkable.

ciocanelu (2990) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 16, 2017
Crystal clear bright straw color with white head. Aroma has grains and some spoiled lemons (not in a bad way) along slightly dank hops. Taste has at first just a hint of lemon and not much else but the hops intensify towards the finish with grassy bitterness that dries the palate and lingers on the aftertaste. Light body, medium carbonation. At first it seems quite watery but overall I get what they were aiming for with this beer and I think they succeeded.

radassace (422) - SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2017
330ml bottle from Tesco. Pours almost champagne colour with a tiny white head. hazy, unfiltered. Light carbonation. Nose is lemon, melon, pink grapefruit, straw and a floral spiciness. Light but slightly sticky texture. Taste is straw, citrus, lemon, grapefruit and floral hops. Medium bitter finish. Really tasty for a low abv beer, and a refreshing summer beer.

Bov (13284) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 10, 2017
from Bier-Bienne - clear pale golden beer with a poor head retention; citrusy and herbal nose; moderate malt backbone, fairly bitter and assertive palate; the finish is short, citrusy and light spicy

3.1
Towey1989 (3324) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle at BeerDock Leek. Pours a clear straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, light grapefruit, subtle melon and slight floral hops. Taste of lemon, slight grain and subtle floral, herbal hops. Light bodied, moderate carbonation but a watery texture. A short, dry but crisp, lemony bitterness in the finish. Nice citrusy aroma and a crisp and refreshing flavour, perfect for a sessionable summer ale. Just watery with a short finish.
