Ha ha of course this isn’t like any bitter you’ve ever had. Bordering on a sour it’s zesty, sharp and thirst quenching. Some malt, wonderfully nuanced carbonation. Red wine, gooseberry, lemon. Legend again.

Cask at the brewpub. Hazy brownish amber. Spicy hops atop nutty roasty malt. Mid dry with firm malt forming a light body. Soft yet crisp with some strawberry and long bitterness. Good quencher.

Cask at Cross Keys in Covent Garden, 19th December 2012. Nice hoppy bitter, good for a session. Not as interesting as some of the other Brodies beers.

Niall73 (1052) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Cask at the old coffee house, soho. Pours a dark amber with a slightly off white head. Quite fruit lemony aroma with a hint of maltiness. Light to medium body, light carbonation. Light caramel, lemon, grapefruit, wood, pine, sap, toast. Dry, bitter. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
(Cask at Cross Keys, Covent Garden, London, 24 July 2011) Dark amber colour with foamy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with orange peel, toasty malt and earthy hops. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of toasty malt, dried fruit and a generous earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Tasty and highly drinkable bitter. Nice one.

Cask @ The Old Coffee House. Chestnut brown color with a modest white head. The nose is malty caramel, brown sugar sweetness, dark fruits, blackberry. The taste is sweet, more brown sugar and classic crystal malt flavor, long lightly-dry finish. Pretty robust body for a bitter, subtle carbonation. Overall, this was actually a very flavorful bitter served in excellent condition. Respect to the Coffee House for keeping a nice pint despite slightly dingy surroundings.
