BOTTLE. Didnít pour into glass but came across cloudy in colour, not heaps of smellonf the nose but got some malt. First taste was heavy malt, nice & thick with a bit of sweet caramel/toffee taste... Possibly better off tap.
Sourced from Ceallrbrations Capel

From 500ml bottle - Ar: roasty and caramel with a grassy hop note / Ap: Dark amber almost brown, hazy, minimal tan coloured head / T: Quite bitter as expected for an ESB, slight initial sweetness but then its all about the bitter / P: Medium-ish body, thin texture, lightly carbonated, with a long bitter finish / O: Decent brew, grassy flavours and raisins really shine through the nice maltiness of the beer. Pretty good, worth round 2 for sure

Pours a caramel amber with an off white head. Sweet dried fruit aroma with a sweet toffee finish. Excellent malt backbone that is the foundation of this brew. Low carbonation, however would like something more to finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor shared at Eagle Bay Brewery. Pours toffee amber with a small beige head. Nose is very sweet toffee apple with mild grass and sultana. Taste is overly sweet toffee with grass and mild dark fruits. Too sweet for me and lacking on the back end. Ok

Tap @ Brewery. ESBís are not really my thing, but I found I enjoyed this. Good full bodied malty beer.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Caramel and toffee malt aromas provide a background for spicy and fruity hops notes. Citrus and fruity hops up front lead into toffee malt and candied fruits in the mid-palate. Floral and fruity hops come through in the finish. This is an impressive attempt at an ESB by a non-English brewer, something which is always hard to find.

Reddish-amber. Aroma is earthy, sweet caramel, light bitterness. Not hugely impressive...maybe disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep amber with a thin brown/white head and quite heavy lacing. Grainy aromas of bread dough, caramel malt, dried fruit and a spicy hop note towards the end. Big, caramel malt, bread dough flavours, interspersed with a touch of dried fruits sweetness and a citrus/spice hop clean up. Really rich, creamy mouthfeel with perfectly low carbonation, just how a English style bitter should be.
