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!

King Willliam IV. Keg. Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is a little soft with nice fine carbonation. Kegs working well for me today. Lightly skunky hops with mellow citrus and then pronounced mango. Creamy malt. Nice refreshing fruit beer.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Keg at Billy IV, London during the Magic Rock Tap Takeover. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Juicy orange nose, light straw, passionfruit. Medium sweet flavor with very graceful hops, light pee, straw, pale malts, fresh citrus. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly dryness to finish with biscuity pale malts, juicy orange, mango, papaya. Delicious. Utterly drinkable. As with the High Wire NZ, I would say this is the UK’s answer to the best stuff coming out of the USA. Superb.

I also tried this beer on cask. While the cask version had more robust character, it was a touch stickier and less refreshing than the keg version. As such, I would say I prefer the keg version.
