chimpgibbon (316) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Ha ha of course this isnít like any bitter youíve ever had. Bordering on a sour itís zesty, sharp and thirst quenching. Some malt, wonderfully nuanced carbonation. Red wine, gooseberry, lemon. Legend again.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This straightforward Bitter marries earthy, leafy hops to subtle caramelized malts before grassy bitterness kicks in next to light minerals.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear amber glow.
-The mouthfeel is soft with low carbonation. Itís obviously hugely drinkable.
-The first half of each sip is rather quiet.
-Malt flavours could be better developed.
-This is good, clean Brown Bitter.

On cask at The Cross Keys, Covent Garden.

JorgeLee (1250) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013
Cask at the Old Coffee House, W1. Brown coloure d bitter with generous white head. A well balanced bitter with quite a pronounced but not strong pine/citrus hop character in the finish, quite light in body, some biscuity malt, medium finish. Well made and pleasant, a very sessionable bitter, perhaps not the most exciting of the Brodies efforts.
