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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Beautiful dark amber with a small, off-white head. Fat, flowery and slightly perfumy aroma hops in the nose. Body is dominated by sweetish caramel and toffee. Quite light and very drinkable with a faint, dry, bitter whiff from the aroma hops. Doesn’t at all remind me of a British-style ESB, more like a watered-down American Barleywine. And that’s not a bad thing.... 160106

Aroma is sweet malts along with some caramel and crystal malts, mild rye bread, nuts as well as some slight herbal and floral hoppyness. Flavour is caramel malts, floral and grassy hoppyness with some mild zestyness, fudge and ryebread. Aftertaste is sweet malts along with some zesty and floral notes.

omhper (19925) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2004
Sampled draught at Stuffed Sandwich, Greater Los Angeles.
Nut brown, creamy head. Restrained sweetness. Deep pleasant malt character with well balanced flowery hop character and pleasant orangey finish with good bitterness. And here wai I thinking that AleSmith could only excel at weirdo over-the-top style beers, then they do the best non-cask bitter I’ve ever had...

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2007
Bottle at Chris_O London bottlefest March 07. Hazy amber colour with thin beige head. US grapefruit hop aroma, distinctive hop. Bit of spicy malt. Bit dull as an ESB to be honest. Hops are a little bit stale and syrupy. OK ESB, but would expect more.
