3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes, at Bar Volo. Slightly cloudy golden amber colour with a decent head. Aroma is nicely balanced sweet malts and hop bitter. Flavour of floral hops, grains and some candy. Slightly resiny, though not overpowering. Nicely balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Volo (old rating from a few months back). Pours a clear orange colour with moderate sized off-white head. Aroma is light floral hops and some fruitiness. Honestly in the taste I got watermelon (!) to go with some modest floral hops and some graininess. Light carbonation. Interesting but didn’t blow me away.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask pint at Volo. My friends Jon and Sanya helped make this beer - so cheers!! Slightly hazy amber-gold with a fairly large and long-lasting off-white head. Smells like a a somewhat more floral than usual ESB - cereal grain, light caramel malt, and lovely low-level bitterness - not very "west coast." Taste follows - grainy, floral, maybe a hint of herbal and light resin bitterness. Chewy, mildly carbonated, and a decently long gently bitter finish - a good drinker on cask.
