COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mahogany coloured beer has a caramel malt bouquet accompanied by the light aroma of hops. The caramel malt taste sails wonderfully into the mouth alongside a fruity taste brought about by a trio of hops.

Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew, Streets, Mark, Ben and Kyle. Pours a hazy amber body with not much head. Aroma is creamy caramel malts, spice, and a light fruity hops. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated with a nice combination of fruit and grass hops, caramel, toffee, malts, and bread. Great ESB. good beer.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
Cask at Dieu du Ciel, served in an English pint glass. Pours hazy mahogany with a tall, frothy off-white head. The head remains until the end and leaves a good amount of lace. On the nose, there are aromas of flowers, pine, citrus, caramel, toasted malt and fruit with a hint of licorice. The flavour starts out slightly sweet and light-moderately bitter. The sweetness fades and it becomes moderately bitter towards the finish. The finish is medium in length and hoppy. On the palate, it is medium in body, with an ultra-smooth milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an awesome ESB. It is darker and maltier than is typical, but much more complex. The hops are very English. Another triumph from Dieu du Ciel, great on cask. 2010-09-04
