3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lovely deep, rich beer. Lingering finish. Just the right level of carbonation for a bitter in my opinion: small bubbles means lots of light, lively prickles as you drink (this seems to be something only I really care about). Rich aroma of marmalade as promised. Wonderful flavours all the way through. Yum.

Pours clear Amber with medium white head. Marmalade aroma! Tastes malty, orange honey marmalade, nice malt background and hops finish smoothly. Medium bodied with generous carbonation. Very well done beer, one of the classics. Very drinkable for those who like bitters.

Bottle. Pours in amber clear body with high frosty head. Aroma has malty character with hoppy fruity and earthy notes. Taste has medium low caramel sweetness with long lasting spicy bitterness. Body is full with very high carbonation, almost harsh at first.

Bernsteinfarben. Schaum verschwindet sofort. Riecht hopfig und nach Orangen. Die Hopfigkeit und ein fruchtiger Hauch begleiten den Trinkvorgang von Antrunk bis Abgang.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a very clear copper color with a small off-white ring. The aroma blends earthy and fruity hops with lightly toasted and caramel malts, and this resonates in the flavor: mildly bitter and slightly sweet with earthy and lightly toasted flavors. The aftertaste holds onto the malt backbone with a lingering hop flavor, and the palate has a slick texture, soft carbonation, and a medium-light body.

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

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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...
