Can. Pours a clear golden brown with a lasting head. Aroma is quite bland. Flavor is a good balance between the hops and malts with the malts providing a sweetness in the finish. Very low carbonation. Overall a decent ESB but not one that I would seek out.

TorbenJensen (784) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
Here we have a beer that is perhaps the most appropriate type that is procured among British ESBs. It has a nice thin and very creamy foam layer. The aroma of the flower, sweet berry fruits and a little spice. Gentle and complete fullness of flavor, where flowers and berries together in a finale with tasteful English hops that puts a great edge for sweetness. Long pleasant hoppy aftertaste.

Butelka, kolejna z hurtowego zakupu "Anglików" w Lidlu Srednie wysycenie i słaba, błyskawicznie znkiająca piana. Aromat słodowy, delikatny, może zbyt delikatny. W smaku bardzo neutralnie, przede wszystkim słody, trochę ziołowości, a później nadspodziewanie (po takim początku) wyraźna i całkiem przyjemna goryczka. Nic nie urywa, ale wypiłem z przyjemnością

Classic bitter, very high drinkability.

28.06.14: Bottle 0.5 l, Lidl, Wrocław, Poland.
Bursztynowe, dość mocno nasycone piwo o puszystej, szybko redukującej się pianie. W smaku początkowo lekko słodowe z fajną, orzechową, goryczką na finiszu.

Grisza77 (127) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Bursztynowe, klarowne piwo o słabej pianie, która szybko redukuje się do bardzo cienkiego pierścienia przy brzegu szkła. Aromat karmelowo-ziołowy. Smak słodowy, karmelowy z wyraźną nutą angielskich chmieli. Goryczka średnia ziołowa. Ogólnie dobre piwo w typowo angielskim stylu.

Ogólnie średnie. Mocno słodowe, karmelowe, fajna lekka goryczka, która mogłaby być mocniejsza
