Cask (William IV, Leyton, Brodies Christmas Cracker 2009)
Sweet honey aroma. Palate slightly caramelly. Packed with sticky hops, slightly pungent, pretty big. Finish pleasantly sweet. Decent light malts despite the occasional feeling it’s too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (handpump) at the Cross Keys, Covent Garden. Attractive clear coppery red colour with a thin and loose, but lasting, beige head. Sweetish malt with a good hoppy back note. Lots of fruit on the palate with a modest, but solid, bitterness in the aftertaste. Little bit of chocolate malt in the background. Well-balanced and very drinkable.

This was my fourth Brodies beer at the splendid, little pub in Soho called The Old Coffee House. A half pint was served at the right drinking temperature from well kept cask. Deep reddish, or perhaps, mahogany in body colour. Glittering, naked on the surface. Malt-fruity aroma. Well balanced flavour of citrus fruits and caramel malts. Rounded aftertaste. A bit thin on the swallow, otherwise a delicious brew. Enjoyed in an almost perfect pub atmosphere on a sunny Sunday afternoon in London (02.08.2009).
