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.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Best before 31 Dec 2016
Dark amber color, to mahogany, with medium sized head, not persistent; fizzy. The aroma is mild, but there is some decent caramel and malt with traces of biscuits. Good body structure, with lean mouthfeel and low residual sweetness; the malt flavor is rater biscuity and mellow; correct bitterness; the final is just a bit drier, maybe also metallic, but itís just an impression.
You can feel that itís an industrial product, but itís quite good.
