Sampled in a bomber. A really malty brew with a serious kick. Really smooth as well and a great sipping brew.

Brownish orange, good head. Some citrus mixed with bitterness and malt coming through towards the end with more citrus or orange in the finish. A fine brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Strong aroma is malty with fruity, earthy and woody notes. It pours a clear coppery with a pale yellow-tan head of about average thickness and persistence. Flavor has a woody core with a fairly, but not fiercely, bitter overtone and hints of caramel,

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange copper color with a slight off white head that rings out and settles for a bit. On the nose I get real subtle notes of bready malts, caramel and light apricot. On the palate its quite solid but not as bitter as I expected from an ESB. Malts galore caramel, biscuit, hints of earth spice. Watermelon rind, touches of fig and other fruity flavors. Nice beer just expected a bit more on the bitterness end.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours pale amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is lots of earthy, lightly citrus English-style hops, some caramel, toffee, honey, light fruit flavors. Medium mouthfeel. Love me some English bitter, and this is a really good version of one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Darker amber, slight haze, moderate frothy off-white head, sticky lacing.   Soft biscuit nose, slight resin or citrus peel as well.   Malty start, biscuity but not heavy, with a soft ctirus peel background.   Very smooth and well balanced.   Has soft hop aspect that lends itself well to the semi-sweet maltiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Overall a well balanced, smooth, and easy drinking ESB.   Fairly crisp too!
