Great pour: Amber, big white creamy head, very good head retention. After the first few gulps its quite clear that this beer is certainly a session beer. Quite flavoursome along with the extreme drinkability this beer is a very good session ale, but not one you drink for extreme tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a dark brown amber color, good amount of head. Aroma sweet and toasty but not decadent, Malty but sharp. Body somewhat thin, finish underwhelming. A little flat for me, maybe this has suffered a bit with age, much less impressive than Alesmith’s other options.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: pour is clear caramel in hue, with a frothy and slightly chunky off white head in this glass. The nose is slightly nutty, toffee, and a bit of fruit esters here. The flavor is initial light bittering hops, nuts, toffee, toast, light fruit esters here. It has a smooth light body , and reminds of their pale in terms of feeling. Yet another nice drinker here

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy brow/ copper with a small beige that stays in a rim. Aroma is a little bit of caramel malts, toffee and toast. Flaovr is a very nice nuttiness with some herbal hop notes at the end, very balanced and robust. Medium palate, sessionable and enjoyable, just the right amount of aftertaste to leave a presence and continue drinking. If appareance could be improved it would be that much of a beer..

Bättre än fullers helt klart men har lite svårt att jubla av glädje. Om det nu är så att fullers är originalet till ESB så är den här ändå bättre. Undra om den kan vara lite gammal kanske. Fasen att kapsylen är slängd
