3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is sweet, marmalade, bready, caramel, toffee, earthy, very nice. Appearance is copper, white head that receded quickly, clear. Taste is fruity, sweet, bitter, floral, caramel, toffee, not amazing but just enough. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, slightly watery, with a mild sweetness and bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is a solid example of the style, smooth enough for even the timid to try but enough flavor to keep you satisfied.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark amber color with an pale orange head, simple but very elegant.
Nice hoppy aromas with a touch of orange and tangerine, nothing fancy but good.
And again, no special flavours but extremely satisfying and easy to drink.
In a time when brewers look for the most extravagant things, this beer stands as an example of greatness in simplicity.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
0,5l bottle. Cloudy copper colour with quickly disappearing creamy white head. Aroma: Earthy, leather aromas of the yeast with notes of herbs and honey. Very serious beer. Taste: Sweetness, bitterness and sourness goes hand by hand. This is the most well balanced beer Iíve ever head. It has citrus taste with wine but with a fine light bitterness and hiding pleasent sweet malts. Light carbonation and easy to drink but not watery at all and has a medium body. Sometimes feels full. I canít feel the alcohol taste just the warm feeling. Smooth tasteful finish. One of the best beers Iíve ever head. Not an obvious beer like a belgian quad or a good barley wine or a complex IPA but definitely a very serious beer just not for everybody.

Originally rated on 7/28/08. My first ESB, have to say it was pretty good. It poured a deep orange- amber body, with a thin light tan head, minimal carbonation. Very creamy mouthfeel, smooth drinking, slightly bitter but not overwhelming. Flavor has slight hints of bread and raisins. Overall a pretty good beer thats worth a try.
