UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Orange appereance with a white head with fair lacing. Smell is of Pine and Citrus. A few caramel notes are present but flavor is dominated by Cascades. Reminds me of a boozier SNPA.

Niall73 (2177) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Can at Brewmasters Theatre of Beer, Clapham. Lemony hoppy aroma with light honey. Light body, medium to full carbonation. Clean, quenching with a good citrus zestiness and a lightly dry finish. Nice enough.

Scopey (8526) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Can from Ales By Mail. It pours clear golden-amber with a small off-white head. The nose is fresh, sweet, fruity, orange, tangerine, brioche and faint pine. The taste is crisp, bitter-sweet, toasty grain, orange rind, tangerine, minerals and pepper with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Aroma is quite nice, but taste doesn’t quite live up to it. Drinkable stuff though.

Benzai (9789) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2015
473 ml can @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Lightly hazy orange color, medium to full sized off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Nice hoppy aroma, I like it, though the hoppy aroma doesn’t last very long. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, decently bitter. I miss the fruityness. Average body and carbonation.

Clear deep amber color, decent white head. Aroma has citrus, pine and rye. Light to medium-bodied. Pale malty, a bit rough flavor with citrus hoppyness. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Nothing spectacular but APA for Sauna.
