thmsboyd (36) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle BBE: Jan 2015. Crystal clear, golden, verging on pale amber body with negligible head. Highly resinous aroma with a hint of cheese & onion crisps. Medium bitterness. Light body with a thin texture, low carbonation and a medium-long finish. Traditional English pale ale/bitter with a slight twist. Quite disappointing

Benzai (8754) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF day 3. Clear yellow to golden color, small white head. Slightly unclear golden color, small white head. Aroma is very citrussy to the point that it’s almost dishwasher water. Taste hops, citra, citrussy, lightly hay, decently bitter. Average body and carbonation. Not really balanced imo.
