3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flowery aroma with a little funkiness. Flavor is smooth and very sweet, with some caramel and dark fruit. A little bitterness provides some balance in a somewhat watery finish. Decent, but not worth seeking out, even if you like ESBs as much as I do.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml Bottle. It pours a medium white head over a golden body. Its aroma is honey, malt and sour hops. Its taste is a bit non-descript really. The only thing really of note is a nice creamy initial mouth feel that ends watery - bit strange that! Otherwise its lacking in taste and character but it is drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is malty, but not like in a lager. Rye and barnyard; plus fruity notes. Minimal head, amber colour. Lightly sour, lightly bitter. Soft carbonation, full body. Maybe lacks some bitterness and character, but it’s a good beer.

Has a healthy golden glow but very little head and a light malt character. Relatively easy to drink with a carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is quite bitter from the English-style hops and almost slightly sour. Taste is somewhat non-descript bitter. Bleh. Boring.

Not too sure about this one. Drinkable, not totally awful, but somehow soapy? Prefumed? Waxy? Light in colour and light on flavour too.

Aug 2012 - slightly floral, which I wasn’t expecting. Quite light, but not watery. Biscuity finish. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Almost clear, deep golden with a orangey sheen, stable creamy off-white foamy layer, honeyish and hoppy nose with a light tinge of vegetables; spicy sweetish-bitter flavour,relatively light bodied, but pretty soft; getting drier and hoppier towards the malty-bitter finish. Just O.K. ...
