Bottle 0,5ltr: I like this English ESB-beer style, an amber coloured beer with an hoppy taste and a hoppy fruity finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Complex aroma but predominantly hoppy. Crystal clear when poured, amber coloured with small head. The hoppiness continues into the taste. A very good drinking beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 5.0%. Slightly raggy, citric hoppiness in the aroma. Almost clear copper colour. Small tan head. The flavour is quite citric from the hops, like the aroma. Some yeast in the flavour, too. The bitterness starts rough, turns more cleansing. Good mouthfeel. Good, but not as good as I had hoped.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle conditioned. This was a surprise to me as I’d convinced myself somehow it was a copper malty ale. It was, in fact, straw coloured. The smell was of hay and the taste of straw and lemon peel. There was also a hint of Smirnoff Red Vodka in the body. All in all an excellent drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2007 Bottled, blind tasting session. Nice grassy and herbal aroma. Yellow color, hazy, white fine head, good lace. Light maltsweet, pretty bitter and even more bitter in the finish, grass, hints of citrus. Dry mouthfeel in the very finish. Highly drinkable although pretty bitter. Lovely beer. Note: Had another bottle but same production date a few months later. This one was very much disappointing. The grassy aroma was replaced by dust and cardboard. The flavor had become quite neutral but the bitterness stayed making it a dull beer.
