Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of yeast, grassy hops, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nice but I preferred the keg version which seemed hoppier.

Draft. Pours gold with a thin head. Light flowery hoppy aroma with some light sweet malty notes. The flavor has pale and sweet malts and floral hops. Well balanced. Not bad.

Cask at Euston Tap. Clear golden with a small head. Quite malty nose, but develops more spicy notes in the mouth. Some earthy notes. Well-balanced, but not over-exciting. Drinkable.
