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.

Sigmund (4936) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2012
I am a bit confused here - the beer was served (hand pump) at Copenhagen Beer Celebration as Brodies Old Street IPA, but the ABV was said to be 5%, same as the Old Street Pale Ale. Has somebody got things mixed up here? Pale golden colour, white head. Nice aroma of citrussy hops, hints of tropical fruits. Light bodied. Distinctly hoppy flavour, hints of tropical fruits again, bitter finish.
