COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A collaboration with the Fabulous Brodies Beers of London, in true Brodies style we brewed a fruity twist on a modern classic . An all pale malt body and balanced bitterness creates the background to let the fruit shine. We added loads of richly sweet mangos in the boil and again in fermentation to accentuate the tropical fruity character of the Citra hops added in the hop back and in conditioning. Deeply fruity yet deliciously crisp and satisfying, all hail The Great Alphonso!

Cask at porterhouse Dublin. Hazy gold. Mango nose, light citrus, some bread and yeast. Dried mango taste, not as juicy as I wanted, tasty orange and grapefruit; bit of spruce in there. Light bready malt. Good balance. Pretty nice. Just didn't sing to me as I hoped it would.

tiong (3733) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Draught @ William K Annankatu, Helsinki

Pours yellowish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of juicy mango notes, caramel, exotic fruits and maltiness. Taste is smooth, juicy and fruity with a touch of caramely maltiness, sweet mango and berry notes. Finish is a bit sticky and stuffy with hints of exotic fruits and mild hoppiness. Okay, juicy but a bit stuffy pale ale.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Draught, Liverpool Psych Fest 2013. Clear golden looks with a small white head. Lovely tropical fruit hoppy goodness in the beak. The flavour had further cracking piney hop bitterness in tandem with some pale malts and notes of mango. Dry bitter finish. Extremely drinkable. Tip top collaboration and hands down the best beer I’ve drunk at a music festival !

Rangi (573) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2013
Really nice refreshing American pale ale. Hazy yellow orange poor. Minimal head but good lacing down the glass. Aroma of slight grape fruit and lemon, very subtle. Flavour is just refreshing great summer beer.
