4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

on tap at Dieu du Ciel. cask conditioned. pours a mahogany colour with a nice frothy white head. aroma is very malty, lots of caramel. i expected more hops in the nose. taste is a bit grassy, with caramel and a bitterness at the end. definately some bread notes in there too. not a bad ESB, but not great either.
