3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Quite herbal hop base, clean yeast, very simple, simplistic light malt body. Undoubtedly single hopped. SLight drinkable. Smooth, pleasant beer, very simple but certainly different than a Kronenbourg or 1664... Guiness like creaminess is the standout feature for sure. (On tap at The Frog & Rosbif)

Copper with an off white, thick, lasting, slides off the glass lacy head. Smells of caramel, berries and slightly stale malt. Medium frothy thin body, tastes of overripe berries, malt, earthy roast and caramel. Sour on the finish and light on the body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Rosbif brewpub. Pours a lightly hazed copper colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly bready and grainy, lightly sweetened caramels with a light herbal note and touches of fruit. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened caramels with some grainy bread and a light herbal hopping throughout. Touches of fruit and nuts before this finishes dry, smooth, creamy, lightly sweetened, and has a moderate bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a creamy, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent ESB. Nothing special, but clean, balanced, and easy drinking. Not bad.

On tap in Bordeaux. Aroma is light with hop notes in nose, notes of caramel and apricot from hops. Appearance is a light red-amber colour with a beautifully smooth white head. Taste is a nice fruity flavour, maybe some apricot and white grape. Palate is a light mild bitterness around mouth, but harsh metal feel on roof of mouth taints the mouthfeel overall.
