Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - JUL 19, 2011
Cask at The Caley. A dark golden ale with a fair beige head. Aroma is dominated by resinous, fruity hops. Specifically passionfruit, pineapple and mango. Quite sweet with some caramel also. Flavours of passionfruit and pineapple. A little bitterness too with an oily mouthfeel. Fruity hop linger. Very nice but a bit sweet for me.

Medium to pale hazy yellow. Light loose goamy head. Good tropical fruit nose. Some fizz in the body. Tropical fruit&hop in the mouth which is shimmering sparkling and palate cleaning. Good length and balance.
