Towey1989 (1895) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Cask at The Old Coffee House, Soho (Brodie’s) A clear brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, subtle biscuity mats, some tea, toast, raisin, orange and slight spicy hops. Taste of caramel, toasted malts, some nuts, slight orange, biscuity malts, a little toast, a hint of dark fruits and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, toasty, spicy fruit hop bitterness in the finish. Wow what a bitter, so fruity as well as malty. Like spiced toast. Brodie’s keep on performing even in their standard beers

Pint draught (cask) @ The Old Coffee House, Soho, London. Looks like a bitter but tastes too watery for me. This is on the light side of the bitters, even at 4% ABV.
