My Bottom Line:
Dry and leafy, this drinkable ESB diversifies the tasting experience through passing peachy fruitiness and resolute bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear amber shine.
-Malts share a few caramelized and toasted edges, but lack clarity overall.
-The leafy dominance gets tiresome quickly.
-The mouthfeel is lean and bubbly.
-This is competently executed, just not to my liking, that’s all.

This is a perfectly balanced ale, fruity by nature with a rounded taste. This beer is brewed specially for the discerning beerer (beer lovers). Is an interesting accompaniment of meat dishes. I love this England, especially in the summer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Copper body, medium head. Aroma is very fruity for a Bitter, also a little caramel comes through. Fruity taste (light raspberries and apples) without going out of balance. Hoppy and mildly creamy finish. Good and different. I would recommend this to cider drinkers who are trying to get into beer.

Ganske god, kanskje litt vel bitter/besk ettersmak, men allikevel en over gjennomsnittlig god øl. Fint skum.
