Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2012
In bottle, thanks Matt. Pours a lovely golden colour with a thick and rocky beige head. Great kiwi hop aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with similar resinous flavours. Well balanced alcohol with moderate carbonation. Just a little CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice with lingering pine and passion fruit flavours.
