2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Rather unusual aroma, slightly nutty, but not overly clean or pleasant. Medium body with a very alcoholic note and some very distinct bittering hops. Whatís in between the aroma and the finish is a bit uncertain, Iím just not very fond of it. 110606

Bottle. A hazy orange beer with a thin disappearing orange head. The aroma is very spicy on a malty caramel back ground. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, combined with a light spicyness.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with a deep orage copper colour. Head dissipates quickly. Strong grassy and floral hop aromas with background crystal malt character. Alcohol is noticable in the nose. Flavour is bittersweet wel-balanced and finishes with a dry almost puckering bitterness and a slick ( diacetyl) character to the mouthfeel. Well balanced but disapointingly tame. Crystal malt is more dominant than hop flavour. Initial bitterness and crystal are even paced but lacks richness and fullness of character.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with a loose soap bubble head. Biscuit, caramel and spicy hop aroma wih some wet cardboard. Tangy, burnt caramel and biscuit flavor with balancing bitterness. Very good, though the oxidation detracts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brilliant reddish copper, with a large white head that vanishes quickly, leaving some lacing on the glass. Nose of fruit, malt, hops. Taste of sweet malt, lemony and honey and apricot, with long bitter finish. First sip mouthfeel was thin, astringent, even chalky off. As I worked through the glass the lemon taste became more apparent, and the mouthfeel became normal. I prefer the 1845 and the various vintages, but this is better than the regular ESB.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle #00859 - Interesting beer here. While Iím a big fan of Fullers ESB, I wasnít sure what to expect here. Aroma was hopped but very malt forward. Appearance was amber in color with nice conditioning. Mouthfeel was a bit thick for me but still enjoyable. Flavors were oaky, and earthy and a bit salty which I found enjoyable. Overall, Iíd say this is a decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
And an anniversary of sorts for me too - being my 300th rating, and a good drop to bring it up with too (and one I drink in honour of newly born yalnikim junior - may he have the opportunity to drink as many a fine an ale as I have/will). Pint pulled at The Flute & Whistle in Putney (London), brown with a thin bubbly beige head. A flowery and fruity aroma with apricots and tangerine. A very smooth palate with tangy undertones, combining with the juicy malt and spicy hops flavours (with a hint of plums).
