Pours amber in color with notes of caramel and slight hints of red delicious apple in the aroma. Flavor has a moderate earthy and herbal hop bitterness followed by moderate caramel notes that are subdued by floral hop bitterness in the finish. A damn good and authentic ESB.

Pours amber. Aroma is a bit sweet with bready hints. Taste is sweet toffee, biscuits, caramel malts and floral hops. Palate is medium and dead on for the style. A bitter that is easily sessionable.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
On tap at ravenous pig... Pours a hazy soft caramel hued elixir with medium transparency. And topped with a thin to medium soapy light beige head... Toasty caramel and soft grains, lightly fruity and finishes with a fair amount of grassy earthy hops... Flavors are more of the same with more abundance on the fruity tones alongside an earthy bitterness that comes firth quickly thereafterwards. Soft caramel and grains play a lesser role but not completely absent. Shy if medium bodied with semi-lively carbination.

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Floral hoppy aroma with toasty and light toffee malts. The flavor has earthy and flowery hops, toffee, and toasted bread. Good stuff.

15 cl test på Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, Florida. Äppelciderdofter stiger mot näsan tillsammans med en viss brödighet. Smaken är bitter, men inte överdriven på något vis. Framför allt karamell genomsyrar smaken.

NordicV (1386) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad öl med lätt vitt skum. Doft med hö och viss citrus. Bra balans i smaken mellan maltsötma och beska. Skiljer sig en del från de engelska ESB jag druckit.

There’s a palace a fallin’, there’s a smoke in the sky. There’s a boy running downhill to the lowlands tonight; and he’s catching the train to where he’s heard you have been. He’s a fool now among us, a dreamer within...

Deep orange from the tap with an off white head. Caramel aroma accompanies a thin body. Distinct green fruit flavor. Leaves an odd bitterness in the finish.
