Dommod2011 (704) - 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.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Cask at Wandsworth London Beer Festival on 6 July 2013. Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Good citrus hop aroma and bitter hops and sweeter pineapple flavours. Lingering balanced palate.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Crystal clear golden with a loose film and ringed white head. Oddly dusty fizz to the creamy fruit noise. Melon meringue initial taste before opening up to a sweet and tightly cropped dry citrus clink. Clean and neat sweetness throughout without being overly cloying or bitter. Nice tandem in the finish, similarly sweet and tutti fruiti.

Gravity dispense at Pigs Ear ’14, day 1, 02/12/14. Clear golden blonde with a decent off white covering that retains well. Nose is citric pith, melon, lemon rind, straw, tangerine, mellow tropicana. Taste comprises light pine needle, mandarin, straw, satsuma. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness evident. Decent hoppy cask juice from Brodies.

Sigmund (5972) - 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.

tomer (2406) - 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.
