3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at King William IV, London. So apparently somewhere along the trail Brodies collaborated with Three Floyds and this beer is the result. It pours clear, golden-brown with a light, off-white cream head. Toasty bread nose with mild, ripe orange. Medium sweet flavor with semi-dark malts, toasty sugars, brown bread, whole grains. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, moderately sweet, with nice and ripe oranges, mellow pine, light earth. Good balance. A very nice brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Old Coffee House. It pours deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is off-putting sulphur, egg, earth and wood. The taste is thankfully much better: wood, leather, resin, earth, assertive bitterness, leaf, subtle caramel and light spice with very dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Very tasty, yet very smelly...... will have to re-try.

Cask, half-pint hand pulled at the cozy brewpub in Leyton, coming in from the rain and cold after the match on Brisbane road between Leyton Orient and Preston. Deep, golden-brown body. Fading off-white head. Malt-fruity aroma. Well blended taste of caramel malts and fruity hops. Rounded malt bitter ending. Medium bodied. Likable (London, 24.11.2012).
