Draft at Monks. Cloudy amber pour with a pillowy white top. Sweet grassy notes off the top. Earthy floral flavors. Wildflower honey. Interesting mix of amber fruit, brown fruit and bright herbs. Spicy bite as well. I like it. Maybe having it a bit too cold. Still feels nothing like an ESB.

dutchbeerpages (1578) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2011
Aroma of sweet fruit preserve and a huge white uneven head. True to its style with the bitterness of an IPA. Nice sweet aftertaste that stays forever. Bottle from Ton Overmars in Amsterdam.

Abio (1569) - Waasland, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2012
Orange amber coloured beer. A very big head that holds nice. Bitter beer with some sweet fruit and caramel and spices. Good hoppy biterness.

BeerBaboon (1555) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Dark red with a little bit of brown in it. Very strong aroma of yeast and pastry. Smells like a frikkin home brew. Yet it’s a pretty good aroma. Flavour is somewhat sweet. Pretty interesting brew.

ShivanDragon (1537) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
7.5%, mooi rood met bruine toets, schuimig kaki kraag, mooi helder
aroma’s van aardse caramouten, ambermout, maar met name de aardse tonen overheersen, mooie fruitige hoppigheid, donker fruit dit keer, wat van rozijnen.
smaken zijn matig zoet, iets van kandy/bruine suiker zoetigheid, bittertje valt wel wat mee, aan de zwakke/matig kant, lijkt zelfs wat van gebrande/geroosterd mout en van de bitterhoppen te komen. caramel, donkere fruiten zoals rozijnen. afdronk lang bitter
matige body, lage co2, aardig maar géén toppertje.

ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning, many thanks! Reddish brown with a big head of medium durability. Aroma is caramel, fruity esters (red apples, apple puree, redcurrant), with a quite strong Czech herbal hop quality. Sweetish-sourish (vaguely vinous), very pleasant smell. Full body, taste is partly sweetish because of the fruitiness and malt, ending with a strong and durable hop bitterness and an aftertaste of apples, hops and some green olives. This is a really great interpretation of the style.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Dark orange amber, thick bubbly orangey white head. Mango, slight honey, thick perfumed hop nose. Juicy citrus front flows into slight estery sweetness, with a drying peppery hop linger.

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of sweet caramel malt, raisins and figs. The taste is quite sweet but not too sticky.
