Light haze on this amber beer, good cream coloured head. Palate is smooth but has a good crispy trailing edge. Smooth malt with a little dry cream. Caramel. There is a fresh ESB vibe here. Good floralness and light bitterness in the semi dry finish. Pretty light and drinkable for the abv.

Trevlig öl med något kryddig smak. Skön maltighet och lagom bäska. Fullers gör det igen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
