kustie (65) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Kauniin ruskean, kuparinvärinen olut. Kaunis vaahto, joka pysyy pitkään. Tuoksussa aavistus humalaa. Maku monipuolinen, aavistuksen sitruunainen. Hieman makea jälkimaku, karamellisuutta.

Surprisingly nice beer. First a feeling of too much bitterness, but the second pint was great. Palate perfect. Excellent to sip. Very nice balance of tastes of berries - blueberry and black currant.

Andy_ (518) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Orange, slightly hazy beer with a soapy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with a weird peaty whiskey kind of aroma. Aroma has also that peaty flavor with malts, wood amd bitterness. The finish is pretty long, dry and bitter. The mouthfeel is medium full with moderate carbonation. It’s a pretty refreshing drink and is not a copy from the Fuller’s ESB but is still similar enough.

Sample at SBWF. Malty and flowery smell and taste. Felt very brittish, but nothing special.
