sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2013
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Bitter with a mellow sweetness. Hoppy aromas of exotic fruits with hints of spruce. Medium bodied. No carbonation. bitter finish.

stravale (2076) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh [310513]
Light blonde, slight haze, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of old lemon zest, soft floral perfumy notes, ver light sweet malts background, touch medicinal, unusual aroma
Taste of floral hops, some old lemon zest, bit aromatic, quite complex hops, nice light pale malts background, little creamy, after a while gets rather too floral and perfumy
Palate - Medium carb, light to medium body. Zesty palate, bitter lemon. Finish is rather dry, very long perfumy flowery longer which I’m not keen on
Overall - It was impressed with this initially then found it getting over floral with the drinking. It’s well made, quite unusual but I just wasn’t a big fan of this.

maeib (8682) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Old Coffee House London 03/05/13. A very pale beer with a whitish ring of head. Citra like hopping in this. Sharp and mango like. Good malt backbone balance. Tasty and very refreshing in a hot day. Another good un from Brodies.

Dommod2011 (698) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Opened and took a big sniff and was hit by hoppy deliciousness. Nice hues on the pour, a cascade of molten orange with subdued tones of Armageddon. An explosion of fruit on the lips melting away to leave a residue of satisfying bitterness. A smidgen of head followed the meander down the receptacle. But... something was absent, only a couscous away but the competition sniffed.

RichTheVillan (2777) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Keg at William IV Bunny Basher; pale straw pour with white head, citrus aroma, citrus hop taste grapefruit very fruity, a good way to BB IV

BlackHaddock (3658) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Keg: half-pint in Brodies King William 1V on 16 Feb 2013. Another brodies beer I struggled with: light golden straw coloured brew with a thin head of white on top. Mixed bag of aromas and flavours but they didn’t seem to gell. Fruit notes ( a twist of lemon with mangos maybe?) and semi-sweet caramel hints added to an unbalanced and strange tasting brew.

tomer (1687) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 19, 2013
Cask @ Old Coffee House, small creamy head, clear golden lager like colour, light piney aroma, flowery soap and touches of malt, flowery herbal flavour, strong bitterness. Quite drinkable but not overly exciting.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cross Keys, Covent Garden. Just before going to see The Mousetrap. pale and citric. Boldly citric but not aggressive. Watery body for 5%. Clean. OK. Lingering dusty hops.
