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.

mikkellund42 (616) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with medium white head. Aroma is pale malt, sweet citrus, flowers, grass, leather and hints of vanilla. Taste is medium bitter, light to medium acidic and light sweet. Body is light oily with soft carbonation. Finish is long and mostly bitter with notes of malt, caramel, (roasted) nuts, bread and sweet citrus.

KoNrRiI (639) - 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 (42) - 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.

Copenhagen 19/1 2015. 50 cl bottle from Netto. Beer in clear glass bottle. Rather unusual. Pours clear gold with white head. Slowly subsiding. Aroma is sourish fruit and acidic. Low carbonation . Taste is malty and a little fruity with light bitterness.

McWorta (799) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 13, 2015
Amber colour, small somewhat dark white head. Aromas of malt and hay dominate. Light slick and crisp, medium body with some sweetness and a hint of hoppiness. Medium finish.

FraekkeFyr87 (67) - - FEB 9, 2015
The aroma is very pilsnerish with fruit. The color is like apple juice, honey and copper golden. The taste is very pilsnerish but with notes of honey and fruit. Very spicey. Not an interesting beer but it’s drinkable.

Milter (234) - Nyborg, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2015
the aroma of malt and herbs with some hints of grains... the taste is malty with notes of grasses, grains and some spices... smooth hopping... dry bitter aftertaste...
