Cask (handpump) at Brodies Bunny Basher Festival at King William IV, Leyton on 1 May 2011. Dark brown with a loose beige head. Well roasted aroma with sprinklings of powdery cocoa. Not a lot of pina in evidence. Or colada for that matter. Maybe a little coconut although whether I would have spotted that without the name of the beer as a clue is debatable. The mouthfeel is quite firm and dry. Overall, very drinkable but didn’t quite deliver as much intensity as I was expecting. On the other hand, I could see any beer delivering pina colada elements in profusion becoming a bit of a sickly mess, so I guess the final verdict on this is that it walked a very fine line rather skilfully.

At the brewpub in Leyton. Opaque black beer, not much of a head. Smooth palate. Low carbonation. Subtle chocolate in the dark malt with a nice sweet touch of coconut and sweet - vaguely pineapple - notes. Finishes slightly minerally and neutral. Not for the first time I find myself really liking the inventive flavours of Brodies beers but wishing the body had more substance and/or condition. A bolder heavier version of this could be a real winner!

Cask handpull at William IV Leyton. Black beer. Lasting thin beige head. Choccy aroma choc. Some pineapple if you stretch the imagination. Touch of coconut on aroma. Ok
