3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finally getting that elusive ESB rating. Poured from a 500 ml bottle.
Aroma is slightly sweet and malt forward with a good amount of caramel and light toffee notes. Some light nuttiness and moderate toasted bread. Medium light fruit esters, especially raisin, plum and fig. Moderate woody hop character.
Pours a clear copper red with some brown hues and a small, thick, slightly off-white head that exhibits good retention as it recedes to a thin film that lingers. Moderate lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is moderately sweet with some medium caramel and light toffee flavors. Lighter toasted bread and nuts with a hint of butter. Medium light fruit notes of raisins, plums and figs. Medium light bitterness with medium low woody, spicy hop notes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an alright beer with quite a bit of malt character and balanced esters and hop notes. Definitely not my preferred hop profile or really malt profile for that matter.

Bernsteinfarben. Schaum verschwindet sofort. Riecht hopfig und nach Orangen. Die Hopfigkeit und ein fruchtiger Hauch begleiten den Trinkvorgang von Antrunk bis Abgang.
