Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2012
In bottle. Pours a golden amber colour with a thin beige head. A resinous hop aroma of pineapple, pine, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with a thick, resinous mouth-feel. Alcohol is very present and warming. Mild carbonation. Alcohol overpowers a bit for me with this one but still tasty.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy dark amber with an off-white head. The aroma holds boatloads of tangerines, resinous wood, pine, herbs, starfruit, wild strawberries and apricots. The malt brings bread, honey and mild caramel. Floral hints. The flavour is light sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic. Tones of citrus, resinous wood, pine and bread. The mouthfeel round and soft with a light astringent ending. Light carbonation. Lingering resinous grapfruity finish. Medium bodied.
