Amber-caramel in colour with medium carbonation. Strong toffee aromas with some fruit in the background. I can recognize the Challenger hops in this one, as I often use them in my homebrewed bitters. Caramel malts dominate the palate, with a clean bittering quality providing some balance. Not really enough hop contribution in the flavor department, but a a solid bitter nonetheless. Thanks Lubiere.

This beer is unlike anything Iíve ever had, and itís quite enjoyable, although there are certain things I donít like about it. Aroma is not all that pleasant: almost corn-syrup-like, subdued, funky malt. However the flavour really explodes: it has some bite and I really like the hops: the hop aroma evolves in a complex way when you drink it. I donít really like the malt in this beer (it tastes like corn and is a bit funky), but, it gets covered up by the hops so itís still drinkable. I wouldnít exactly call this smooth; the hops are complex, the malt isnít. What is wrong with the malt in this beer? Ahh...anyway. Interesting and I enjoyed it and Iím glad I tried it although Iíll probably not get it again.

(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful amber with a handsome but dissipating head. Malty character with some caramel. Lovely aromatic and very floral hopping. Great and very easy drinking. 140102

Little aroma, clear amber color, and excellent hops flavor. Slightly sweet, but well-balanced overall. Excellent ale!

Good nose, the best part of the beer. Very good nose, fruity and beautiful. The taste is very bland and unremarkable. Leads a lot to be desired.

On tap at North End Pub, Leiden. pour a clear amber with a small white head, quickly disapearing. Mild aroma, slightly sweet. flavor is slighlty fruity and finishes dry and bitter. Iím not a big ESB guy, but this is a good one.

DuffMan (8041) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2005
Clear & coppery, caramel, some stone fruits, and a metallic tang in the nose. Flavours of roasted malt and stewed fruits with a slightly bitter finish. Deliciously drinkable.

Hadnít had this beer for a long time and maybe I had it too cold and under circumstances, where I should only have gone for tasting something with more power in it. Itís ok, but isnít ok just another word for mediocre?
