Specific smell quite difficult to identify (for me..). Kind of dark colour with, very CO2 ish head that disappears quickly. Taste like it smells - light bitter taste. Medium sticky palate. Overall OK but not of my favourites.

This beer is way under-rated, one of my favourite incarnations of a (ES)bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Just too much yellowish head for a true B.C."H." Veiled amber beer. Fruity, faintly spicy hops, caramel, cookies, rainwater; inconcspicuous. BItter-hoppy, but with quite some caramel behind it. Hint at diacetyl. Vegetable bitterness taking over, but always mild. Well-carbonated, light body, refreshing until the aftertaste, where there is a flavour of hazelnuts. Good imitation of a British "ESB", down to the diacetyl. The originals will win hands down on cask, of course.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 33 cl full sample. The aroma is floral, has caramel maltiness, some toasty tones, light citric. Clear, red-brown coloured (amber if you wish) with an off-white lasting head. The taste is caramelly sweet, light bitter and has a nice floral-citric hoppiness to it. Medium carbobated. relative easy drinking considering the malty sweetness. Found it to be a pleasant one.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber body with a small disappearing head. Nose has sour citrus notes accompanied by some caramel and floral tones. Taste is dry with a long, lingering bitter finish. Carbonation is lively and the palate is nicely rich. Well balanced and nice, but the aromas combine to form a smell that I find slightly unpleasant for some reason.
