Bottle. Appearance - deep amber with a red hue. A decent head. Nose - maple, as well as usual toffee. Taste - more toffee, light nuttiness, maple I suppose. Palate - close to medium bodied with a rich creamy middle section and a finish which could be a little cleaner, to be honest. Overall - a decent ESB but Iíd like more clean biscuit notes on the finish.

Pyobon (1220) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2015
(Bottle) Clear coppery amber with almost no head. Pleasant but subtle light toffee aroma. Medium body with good carbonation. Nice taste - rich and sweet with toffee malt flavours and distinct maple notes with some slight tangy and bitter balance. Good beer with maple present but not overwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from lidl, wednesbury. Amber beer with small residual head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is malts, some sweetness that could be maple syrup but since I have never had it, I canít be sure and some mold hop bitterness. Ok.

Stale smell and a bit of that in the taste too. Soft sweet biscuit. Light spice and cherry. Pretty unremarkable Iím afraid.

Pours dark amber, not much head. Not much aroma. Medium sweet. Heavy mineral finish. Medium body. I donít get much of the maple, though there are suggestions of Christmas spices and orange.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury's. Poured clear. Copper in colour with a lasting, frothy, creamy white head. Weak, sweet roasted malt aroma. Malty sweet in flavour with a bitter aftertaste. Drinkable but a bit weak tasting and sweet for me.
