Bue en bouteille. Couleur ambré brun. Beau maltage, rondeur et corpulence. Et belle amertume simple. Finale plus complexe sur la vanille ou le fruit noir.

Bottle. Turner’s, Sheffield. Clear copper colour. Thin, blotchy, fresh ginger coloured head. Nose has cake fruit malts. Stewed, dark fruit. Syrupy hop. Taste is brown sugar sweet. Gentle bitterness forms. Soft, and fairly full mouthfeel. Finishes light, fruity bitter, with a syrupy sweet longer. Ok.

Small taster showing dark brown.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent, of course. Nice malty backbone with just the right amount of hop bitterness, done in the English style and punched up a little with an American kick but not overdone. As with their other standards, really well balanced, excellent mouthfeel, quality ingredients.

Good looking beer has a beautiful amber color and pours with a thick creamy head. It has a mild aroma. It has a really nice smokey malt flavor and is easy to swallow all together

A terrific Americanized version of the English pub ESB. Lots of toffee, caramel and toast, with a hastening hop presence and some good warming notes.
