Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2011
On cask at The Bow Bar Summer Beer Festival, 2011. A light blonde colour with a thin white head. Sev didnít like the nose but I didnít mind it. A Weetabix cereal aroma with some biscuit notes. Didnít taste so good though and a little thin. Flavours of barley, puffed wheat and Weetabix again. A dry apple linger.

Cask at Egham United Services Club Beer Festival on 19 August 2010. Clear fresh gold colour. Originally listed as Upham Hunny but subsequently changed to Upham Nectar so, although not specifically mentioned in the commercial description, I presume there is honey involved in this brew. That is evident from the aroma. Lots of honey there. Continues into the flavour but less prominent where it presents as a clean, light golden ale. Probably didnít show at its best alongside a lot of bigger beers but I guess every festival needs to have some more straightforward, quaffing ales. Which is exactly what this is. No complaints about that - it does what it does perfectly well.
