Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple and yeast. Similar flavours with a dry finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Just a little thin but quite drinkable.

DuffMan (6436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pale yellow, very pale, with brisk carbonation and a lively white head that clings tightly to the neck of my Corsendonk tulip glass. Aroma is quite grassy with additional lemony and floral notes. Hoppy, dry, crisp, and bright with tame wheaty malts (I’m not saying there is wheat in here, just saying the malts are really an afterthought). Quick finish. Another flavourful mild golden ale from across the pond.
