Tap take-over at Mikkeller Bar. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Beautiful fruity and floral aroma with plenty of lime and lemon peel. Sweetish fruity flavour, also with a touch of strawberry. A highly drinkable quencher

Cask at the Evening Star, Brighton on 2nd February 2013. Clear gold with whitish foam. Rich and intense hoppiness in aroma, with fruity peach notes and a smoky tinge. Rich and intense hoppiness in-mouth. Long lasting bitter finish with leafy grassy notes. Mouthfeel is smooth and fine-textured, easy to drink. Exquisite.

Cask @ The Old Coffee House. The pourís a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a tiny white head. The nose is piss, strong citrus fruit salad. Tropical fruits aplenty. Salty brine, green shoots. The taste is more tropical fruit salad. Plenty of lemon peel and orange sherbet. Light pale malts, hints of cake batter. Mildly resinous hop finish. Light body, smooth. Fine carbonation. Overall, a great citra showcase!

Old Coffe House. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, little suddy white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Mild carbonation. Mild pale malt. Great fresh Citra. Fresh orange with traces of lemon. peach and tangerine. Clean and fresh. Finishes fairly neutral. Effortless quality from Brodies.

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Cask at the Old Coffee House, split with Chris, Jan and Charlotte, 18/01/13. Almost clear pale golden with a thin off white head that clears to the edge and forms a small pond. Nose carries hops, pine, citrus, grass, caramel, touch of soap. Taste follows, good hop presence, pine, orange, citrus fruits, light soap. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Decent.

shoulderbroken (1887) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 10, 2013
Cask at William IV. Very clear light golden blond colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma is stinky, b.o., really smells sweaty not so nice. Taste is bitter, some sweetness, bit unspecific citrus, bit twiggy. Maybe I donít like citra. Taste is ok though i suppose.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2012
On tap. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Fresh Citra aroma but subtle and downplayed. Medium body, lightly sweet fruit and then a distinct bitterness from the Citra. Fresh indeed. 111112

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Keg at the Cock Tavern, London. Pours lightly hazy gold with a strong, white foam head. Rich citrus aroma, some hefty orange and grapefruit, some other tropical fruits. Medium sweet flavour with lots more citrus fruits, some grass and straw, staunch pale malts. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty sticky and resinous to finish with lots of ripe orange, pine, grass and grapefruit, along with fairly sweet pale malts. Quite rich for 5%, but that isnít to say it isnít well balanced and delicious - it is both. This is definitely one of the more well rounded, mature beers I have had from Brodies. Great stuff.
