I underestimated English beers, and this beer was just perfect. The ester and malty aroma is gorgeous, bitter and malty finish is really well balanced and great. Canít even think of better ESB than this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Pours copper/red with diminishing white head, low carbonation. Aroma is caramel sweet maltiness mixed in with fruit, but also little bit spiced. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness, very balanced and smooth. Texture is a bit oily, but its full bodied and the finish is nice and long. Good and complex.
