Great combination of subtle bitterness with drink ability. Low alcohol makes this a good session beer

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear darker amber, approaching ruby. Slightly spicy aroma, a little nutmeg. Nice medium mouth feel and restrained carbonation. Flavours are pretty complex and range from allspice through traces of chocolate. Nice floral bittering. Really nice, but not overblown ESB -- may be my favourite. I love Fullerís because they do it right

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 50cl. Pours copper and amber color, clear and quite beautiful with a medium two-finger head of beige creamy head. Aroma is rich and of mostly dominated by some citrus/orange peel mixed with a hoppy character. You will find raisin/dried fruits, malt, toffee and malt. Taste follows the note, with the addition of bread, biscuits, fruity, fresh and crisp almost grassy acid in the middle, before it turns again to a subtle bitter finish. A lot of different flavors and sensations, almost perfect mouth-feel with nothing being too dominant. Really good balanced, canít say that enough. Medium to lively carbonation, medium body and finish. I enjoyed it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Amber-copper hybrid color with nice clarity & pureness, topped with a beige-tinted head that lasts around for a bit but doesnít leave behind much lacing. Aroma is kind of weak, with light notes of toasty malt, bread, faint yeast, woodsiness, nuts, & mild toffee. Opens up just a bit more with warmth. Taste has lots of caramel up front with some woody & nutty notes coming out mid-palate. Floral flavored hops, a touch of citrus & fruit-like sweetness with an earthy bitterness for balance. Wood, nuts, & faint caramel in the finish, not very bitter overall. Thin bodied... Nice flavor, wish the aroma was a bit more boisterous.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow, this is some good stuff. Itís not like the overwhelming hop bitter bombs we get here in the US (especially San Diego county brewers). Nose of toffee, caramel, biscuit, and grass. Tawny amber/copper pour with a nice white head and lacing. Nice balanced flavor with the malt shining through, not too sweet or bitter. Flavors of citrus, caramel, earth, and pepper. Clean palate, medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, and long, balanced finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best takes on an ESB, truly a classic. Fruity and malty with some dried fruit and orange aromas.
