4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark amber with a bubbly white foamhead that settles to a nice attractive layer throughout the session. With it’s foam layer and that reddish brown color it is certainly an attractive beer. Equally attractive is the aroma, sweet from candied fruit and flowery from some exotic plant. It is one of the most delicious nose of any beer. The taste is carrying on feeling created by the start, but here hops are playing an important part as the bitterness is playing hide and seek with the sweetness from crystal malts. Very balanced, almost a tad too much bitterness, but it’s the kind that makes you think about when you can have another swig. It’s simply delicious too. Medium to full in the mouth with classic english lower carbonation. I still prefer the London Pride, but the ESB is a classy great beer from a classy great brewery. I like.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- amber, clear, plenty of bubbles rising, fizzy white head which diminishes quickly. Really nice aroma- orange, marmalade, tangerine, creamy malt, Jaffa cake, toffee, fruity, currants, toasted tea cake hints. Taste is smooth, lots of fruitiness, orangey, bitterness, tangy marmalade, nutty hints, fruitcake, medium bodied, like an amped up London Pride. Lingering finish. Really good, and delicious.

Floral hop aroma with caramel notes and medium fruity esters. Copper color with a white head with average head retention. Flavor is more towards the bitter side with floral hop flavor and a caramel, toffee malt flavor. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry on the end. Overall, it's a pleasant sessionable beer.
