Jarl recently came third in Champion Beer of Britain, winning "Best Golden Ale" so when I saw it for sale in The Beer Emporium in Sandbach, I had to have a bottle.
Jarl is extremely pale in colour, like many of the Thornbridge beers. The photo makes it look darker than it is. It has a lovely hoppy nose and pours with quite a soapy, frothy head. This would be the perfect beer for drinking on a Summer afternoon and at 3.8% you could have a few. The taste is sensational - light, refreshing and citrusy and just so well balanced.
Jarl is absolutely amazing and fully deserving of its awards. Try one as soon as you can!
