On cask at The Old Coffee House. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. A pungent aroma of passion fruit, grapefruit and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering passion fruit and grapefruit again. Lovely.

Hand pulled cask at the Old Fountain, Old Street, London. Pale gold with a thick unsparkled white head. Brodies amaze me. Their beers can be such a let down at their brewery tap ( anyone present at the RBESG 2011 should understand this sentiment) but this (in a pub respected for good collaring) was truly stunning! As good as Thornbridge Kipling, despite considerably lower strength. I love this magnificent session ale!

Cask @ William IV. Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head. Distinct fruity aroma with citric and tropic fruit in combination with white wine grapes and some yeast. Very refreshing and fruity flavor, light malt and decent bitter . Medium body. A really nice thirst-quencher but also quite tasty considering less than 4% alcohol. I had a few of this one tonight.
