12oz bottle. Honey-colored, little head fades off, clear beer. Really nice aroma, nutty and sweet. Nice palate, plenty complex, toffee and malty notes, plenty of linger. Good tasting notes, much better quality than I was expecting.

Bottle via trade with Alex - thanks! Mostly clear orange pour with a smaller white head. Soft earthy malts and a little bit of grassy hop - just a bit. Easy drinking, and nothing off-putting in here. Pretty solid ESB.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper color with a off-white head that stays. Head leaves good lacework. Fairly active carbonation in the glass.
Strong aroma of hops, almost floral, with a slight malty sweetness in the back.
A good medium bitterness with a toasty, quite dry taste in the back of your throat. Almost salty.
Medium bodied with very active carbonation once on the tongue. Almost a
slick/oily feeling in the mouth. The dryness is quite long lasting.
This is a beer that can be consumed in large quantities, but I am worried that the dryness may lead to me eventually drowning in the beer.
12 Oz Bottle, poured. Brought from USA by my Mom! :)

Its hard to get an English bitter to work in the States, and this one is slightly better than average. Their selection of EKG apparent and well-done. The malt choice a bit more suspect.
