3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper. Sweet aroma almost like jam. Flavor is initially a little dry with hoppiness but lots of caramel sweetness comes soon after. There is a lot of nice favor in the beer. A lot of acidity sweetness, both tart and bread. Enjoyable. Had with homemade beer batter chicken and fries. Served in british dimpled mug. Would definitely drink again even though not my favorite style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light amber, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and bread with light floral fruitiness, light - some grassy/citrus hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light - some caramel/toffee with light floral fruitiness and notes of biscuits, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and some toffee with light fruitiness, light bread/biscuits, light - some grassy/citrus hoppyness. Caramel sweetish ESB. OK body but could be drier with more bitterness. For me this fruitiness does not go along with caramel and toffee

Super questa premium bitter. Colore ambra e la schiuma di media persistenza non scompare mai del tutto. Aroma erbaceo molto interessante, ma sorprende al palato con il suo corpo rotondo, una leggera amarezza in un insieme appena dolce. Carbonazione leggera. Una splendida bevuta

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very sparse head. Color is amber but more orange to it than a pure amber. Very clear (free of haze or particles).
Aroma is interesting - orange aromas, caramel/butterscotch, a bit of bread.
Taste is mildly sweet with a fairly low level of bitterness.
Medium body; texture unremarkable; carbonation just a tad low; finish is fairly long, with carbonation, sweetness and lingering bread and orange. Alcohol is low to medium, at least by craft beer standards.
In summary, I really like the unusual orange aromas, with interest added by the caramel and bread notes. For my taste, it is a little on the thin side and not super complex, which suppressed my rating a bit. However it is a fairly unique and quite interesting beer that I would recommend and will enjoy again.

SB Hultsfred, flaska. Fin lite försiktig arom. Frukt aprikos enbär. Påfallande mycket malt som väger ut bitterhumlen. Inte som USA IPA...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Very strong hops and frugal smells. Amber color with a white head that quickly fades. Bitter taste with soft carbonatation. Long aftertaste that is creamier than it taste, some herb stays in your mouth maybe, like mint. A very balanced beer, excelently made.

50cl @ bottle. Classicone inglese: ambrata, beverina e con un amaro non troppo forte e persistente. Ottima, davvero.
