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

En vulkan kan visa sin kraft genom att aldrig få ett utbrott. En fältherre genom att visa behärskning och återhållsamhet i kritiska lägen. Om detta vet Fuller’s smack ingenting. Åtminstone av Past Masters att döma. Trots välmodererad alkoholhalt - 7,3 procent - bankar och bultar den hela tiden under ytan, flexar all sin styrka i förgrunden. Fuller’s borde veta bättre än så här. En närmast fläckfri resultathistorik är ingen garanti mot felsteg, uppenbarligen.

Bottle from Systemet. Nice mahoggany colour. Malty aroma with liquorize and roasted caramell. Rather sweet but fullbodied taste with caramell and coffee. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
