Off the hand-pump in Hart’s Pub today, this lovely soft pint took me back to pub gardens lost, in the shadow of Shangri-La

Lovely caramel aroma. Burnt toast but reminiscent of morning. Nutty taste early, spicy and bitter on the end. Nice lingering finish.

I was really surprised by this ESB, had a bottle at The Firehouse in Ringwood VIC. It has a surprisingly bright taste for an ESB with a nice caramel balance to the bitterness. There has been a fair bit of a dry hopping which adds good complexity to what is sometimes lacking in an ESB. A very good beer and will definitely have again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml Bottle. A dark amber/caramel coloured beer with a frothy off white head. Aromas of a toasted caramel malt, and a piney/citrus hops with hints of spice and bread. Taste is smooth and malty with a slight toffee sweetness. Moves into a bitter, hoppy finish. Very nice, easy drinking.

A nice bitter which is not trying to be too far out of the ordinary, and which retains a strong character. Good looking, great tasting and well crafted. Definitely worth a try.

Hazy fruity, almost English-tasting. Good complexity, caramel malts. Clean yeast but otherwise English-tasting. Not particularly distinctive.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Medium golden brown in colour with an off white head. Strong aromas that indicate a hop presence that is reflected in the taste. Excellent use of finishing hops to give a nice bitter aftertaste to balance a stop malt presence. Large resinous presence too. Strong bitterness is surprisingly not overpowering, as it is well balanced with fruity sweetness.
