omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark ruby, rich creamy head. Spicy cardboardy nose. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some fruits, evident blunt crystal malt character, lots of paper mash. Fairly low bitterness. A style of beer that solely relies on malt character, and in this case that malt character happens to be simplistic and harsh. A huge let down.

Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Softish dry palate. Watery malt with traces of cream and sweet coca cola. Lots of minerals and a dry finish. Lacks depth and is a bit too watery.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle at The Rake. Not a great aroma. But its a decent sub ESB malty beer. Better in mouth and finish than on aroma. Tad oxidised on aroma. Fine.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.

Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. It’s a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.

Draught@Beer Hunters
Clear deep ruby color, good creamy beige head. Light citrus, caramel and berries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Licorice, malts, light hoppyness. Very much like an English ESB-style brew. Balanced but a bit bland.
