Clear golden appearance with little head. Absolutely no aroma. Tastes of hopped caramel, dry peach, citrusy fruits, booze and anise. Light body, medium carbonation and a bitter finish of caramel. Anise!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copenhagen 21/5 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Blue label with no less than 5 gold medals and the very modest by-line "Champion Ale". Pours clear amber with small white head. Settles as fine thin layer of foam. Aroma is quite strong. Caramel, soap and quite pronounced sourness with hints of citrus. Soft carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by more distinct bitterness. Bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. A nice bitter edge in this very easily drinkable ESB.

Bottle at pub. Beautiful amber color with small beige head. Aroma is malty caramel with a little bit of herbal hops. Taste is full of malts and a little sweet with mild hops. Really good beer, not very special but still amazing.

500cl. bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a dark amber. Caramel aroma with malt. Grassy, fruity taste with the caramel again. Tends to a watery mouthfeel but pleasant with the interesting flavours.. Soft carbonation. Even with stiff competition these days this beer stands its ground.

From a bottle. The slight spiciness of the yeast is interesting, otherwise a classic of the style.

Immediate caramel, toffee, some orange, cherry on the nose - you could smell it from 5 feet away. Reminds me a bit of Grand Marnier liqueur. Pour has surprisingly little head, but body is a pleasant orange-brown. Taste is full and malty. Lots of orange liqueur, caramel, chocolate covered cherries. Biscuit, slight vanilla as well. Very subdued hops, with light floral touch in the finish. Low carbonation, somewhat thin but in a way that suits the beer - very sweet and sticky flavours without being sticky itself. Just an awesome beer.
