Keg @ The Duke Of Wellington beer festival. As ’Sas-squash’. The pour’s deep golden with a tight creamy white head. Lovely looking. The smell is strong sweet passion fruit and mango. I swear I could smell this as it was being poured. Some additional notes of aromatic cheddar cheese and grassy funk. The taste is funky dank weed, soggy grass spiked with nimble orchard fruits. Apricot and strawberry preserve. Bracingly bitter finish. Still, very smooth and easy drinking. Nice fine carbonation. Overall, quite impressive.

At the Brewpub. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Light smooth palate, a little dry. Nice hops! Juicy lemon - lime - orange citrus with some pine. All in good balance. Really well joined up. Semi dry finish. Lovely!

Svesse (6066) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2012
(Cask at Cross Keys, Covent Garden, London, 22 April 2012) Golden colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, lemon peel, grapefruit and resinous hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with lemon, grapefruit, grass, biscuity malt, and a solid, zesty, citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Lovely hop character, backed up by a chewy malt profile. And so deceptively drinkable. Lovely beer!

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.

Cask at the Cross Keys, Covent Garden. Golden, clear with a bit of wispy head from the natural carbonation. Luscious scent if tropical fruit and lemongrass. Taste is bitter but not too much so. Slight notes of pear, woodsmoke and soap, but the latter clears in the clean dry finish. A fantastic cask beer.
