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.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury and drunk at home. Hazy gold thin white head. Tropical fruit all over this. Bit over carbonated so a bit of a swirl required. I thought that it was a little light in the malts but otherwise I really liked it. Good bitterness on the finish. Tropical fruit tasty light and tasty as hell.
