COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright copper color, sparkling clarity, and good foam retention when properly served. Appealing Brussels lace. Deep toasty/caramelly malt balanced by spicy/fruity hop flavors accented by fruit esters resulting from fermentation with a championship yeast strain. The aroma is subtle and reflects the flavor with malt, hop and fruit (ester)/fermentation characteristics. Smooth, medium-bodied. Easy drinking with no harsh or astringent sensations.

Muggus69 (1272) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2014
640mL bottled 04/06/14 Nice looking clear reddish amber body, holds a small off-white head. Modest aroma, subtle but there’s plenty going on; nutty, biscuity malts, toffee, plummy undertones, with earthy, spicy, dried herbal hops. Full body to it, lifted carbonation, persistent on the palate. Solid hit of tasty toasty nuts & biscuity malt upfront on palate, some burnt toffee sweetness leading into leafy hops & plummy/dark fruit esters. Reasonably high bitterness on lingering, smooth finish. Very well made ESB, Ticks all boxes.

Cool_Bond (1583) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2014
Toffee, dark fruit and some sweetness in the aroma. Malty but still not as bitter as I thought of the taste. Thought it would be harder but I liked it. Okay bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. But anyway, I liked this beer as it had not been so heavy bitterness.

Kita (1197) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.65l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Clear copper color with large fluffy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, resin and herbal hops. Taste starts moderate sweet caramelly, follows by dried fruity esters, slight bready sourness and hoppy finish. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. It feels better than English ESB brews...

g_georgiou (291) - CYPRUS - AUG 14, 2014
Clear amber body with a thin tan head. Aroma is bread, some flowery fresh hops, caramel, citrus, spice. Taste is light, watery, not too sweet not too bitter. I give it a low score for taste since I think it doesn’t really taste like a bitter should but overall I personally really liked this beer. Very refreshing and drinkable.
