500ml bottle. An easy drinking solid ESB, there is nothing bad about it but nothing to make it stand out from the crowd. It pours light amber with a very thin head. The taste is bitter, slightly sweet at the back end and refreshing to drink. I think it would go well with a bbq food on a hot day.

hawthorne00 (2738) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2015
Gold with a small white head. Dull aroma with oranges, boiled lollies, some spices. Fairly sweet with hay, lolly-like oranges and pears. Sweetness is met by moderate bitterness, some dusty spices at the dryish finish. Not terrible but rather lifeless.

KoNrRiI (699) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of yeasts, pale malts, grass, and some leather. Taste is malty, delicately sweet, some hay, and hints of metal. Light to medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is short and follows the taste apart from a short introduction of estery notes. Overall a standard bitter I would say.

DIBBLE (91) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Clear golden beer. Well carbonated with fine and sticky off white head. Initially boasts a malty aroma and flavour with a not unpleasant coppery metallic edge. Fruity characteristics are subtle but there is some Pear amidst the long hoppy malt finish.
