Clear brown with huge brown foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is malty, with some sweet fruity notes. Taste is bittersweet with light coffee note and again some citrus fruits. NOt a bad beer at all. (Velp 201301)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into Eng. pint glass. A cooper color or a whiskey color with nice but short lasting head. Almost no lace. Aroma is of toffee, cereal and a woodiness. Taste is biscuits and hops that bitter and deepen in wood in the finish. Body is thicker and oily. Very nice, I would love to try the cask version.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker. Clear copper gold with fading thin white head. Toffee and toast on the nose. Some malty caramel sweetness to balance the mildly bitter note on the finish... I think I'll have another!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper color, with a small creamy head, disappearing fast, leaving a little lace. Smell is caramel, licorice, and the fruity notes of good hops. Taste is also caramel, but in the taste the citrus/grapefruit notes of the hops are definetely more clear. Bitter end with a pleasant aftertaste.
Another great bitter by Fullerís.

Trevlig ESB, en av favoriterna faktist. Den har en maltig framtoning och en härlig bitterhet. Välbalanserad i min mening.

Bottle 50 cl from Systembolaget. Clear ruby with a thin beige head. Fruity, earthy, slight caramel. Medium body, medium/low carbonation, bitter finish. The kind of aromas/tastes I want in an ESB.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma was nice and enhanced by hops. The flavour was slightly malty and sweet. The hops kicked in again towards the end.

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