Bottle: pours a dark orangish golden color with a light tan head. Malty aroma of sweet grains. The flavor is caramely with a slight bitterness. Nice, solid mouthfeel. Enjoyed this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a tall light tan head that has good retention, settling into a sparse coating.
Aroma: The aroma is malty with caramel and brown sugar notes with an herbal tea like hop aroma along with some fig aromas.
Taste: Malty with lots of caramel, notable most through the mid-taste through to the finish. Perhaps a touch too much. The hoppiness is mild, providing a slightly floral and herbal quality to the flavor.
Palate: Light in carbonation, but full bodied.
Overall: This is a decent beer and I could certainly drink it, but it’s not very enjoyable by the end.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy medium amber with a long-lasting head cover and wide horizontal streaks of lace. Taste is strong malt with a little sweetness appearing in the palate, that grows as it adds a bittering finish. The finish eventually drops the bitter, leaving a sweet residue. Overall, very drinkable.

Poured from bottle into an English Pint glass, it is a caramel color with a thin head, the aroma is malt and some sweetness, taste is malt up front and then gives way to hoppy bitterness that is pronounced, overall a nice ESB

Deep gold, hazy, off-white head. Aroma of grainy-sweet malt with a little caramel, spicy-herbal hop aroma with a little citrus in there. Flavor is biscuity and grainy with a little honey sweetness, followed by a soft herbal hop flavor, finishes with a moderate spicy hop bitterness.

Nice solid brew. Golden yellowish body with a head of thin wispy beige and the aroma has mild spiced hops, grapefruit and a mild caramelized biscuity malt. Well balanced and crisp, clean flavour.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a hazy light amber orange with a small head that looks like off white styrofoam. The nose has a bit of caramel, a slight metallic note, slight floral notes, and a slight fruitiness. The flavor has a forward pine bitterness with lots of caramel, toast, maybe a slight touch of butterscotch, and a slight fruitiness. Medium body with soft carbonation leading to a dry finish. Really nice brew!
