GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Softish palate, slightly dry and a little silky. Light hop but full on flavour. Mild grassy grapefruit. Some mandarin orange and a little pineapple. Mild minerals. Not much malt character. Quite a warming finish.

planky84 (2891) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Cask at the NWAF, Manchester, 2012. Bright yellow/gold pour with a white head. Syrupy nose, pear drops and mango in the aroma. Honey and mango flavour with a spicy, grassy feel. Throat warmer. Long fruit filled finish. Very nice indeed.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2012
On cask at the 2012 NWAF, Manchester. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, oak, candy sugar and grassy hops. Similar flavours with candy sugar and alcohol both quite prominent. Just a little sweet. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. OK.

Benzai (14476) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2011
Cask @ The Rake, London. Clear orange / golden color, no head. Smell sour and cellar. Taste lightly bitter, tones of sweetness and fruit. Average carbo, low to medium body. Decent.

tommann (3434) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2011
Cask at the Waggon and Horses, Halesowen. Pours gold with a small head. Aroma is piney hops and alcohol. Taste starts with sticky pine needles. Piney hops and orange in the medium bitter finish. Full and sticky in the mouth.

berkshirejohn (6172) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2011
Cask at Our Mutual Friend, Stevenage. Straw with a thin cream head; sweet and grainy aroma; smooth oily texture, swet and grainy flavour with a hint of tropical fruit; the finish is dry with some quinine bitterness and warming, spicy, alcohol. More of a Barley Wine in my opinion.

dynamiteninja (1837) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2010

Brandman (2882) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2010
Golden body, white head. Malty aroma with fruits and peaches. Crisp flavour, some apple and citrus. Very bitter, nice malty backbone. Warming alcohol, but not in a bad way.

Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2010)
6 touch of butter but otherwise rich.
4 deep gold, flat
7 simple sweet malty palate
4 low carbonation, supersoft palate, a touch sweet and sticky, but lovely. Without the sweetness this would be 5
15 fuck me 7.5 percent. No way.
