Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark amber with a bubbly white foamhead that settles to a nice attractive layer throughout the session. With itís 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 itís the kind that makes you think about when you can have another swig. Itís 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.

Toffee, citrus and malt in aroma. Copper colored beer with nice silky head. Taste has caramel, malt and nice hops. Dry balanced aftertaste with some grass, toffee and honey. Bitterness is balanced also. Nice beer for every situation.

Picked a bottle up in Tesco as a part of a 4 for 3 offer, I hadnít tried it before so thought I would give it a shot and am glad I did! It doesnít look much, just a standard bitter with a minimal bubbly hed which soon goes. Taste wise though itís very enjoyable with citrus and cherry notes along with caramel malt and leading to a slight bitterness on the finish. I will buy again for sure!

Brown body, very small light head which quickly dissipates away. Looks very lively. Aroma hints of bitterness, has some yeast and cherry notes. Taste is nice and soft. Itís not strong at all but still fairly well balanced. A hint of bitterness with a slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is easy, light carbonation. Altogether itís pretty nice.

Malty aroma and flavor, some orange, dry, with a subtle pungent aftertaste. Full body. Lovely beer. I still donít know why bitter is I the name of this beer style.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
