Moebbels (347) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Pours a light brown color with a little cloudiness. Head is minimal and white in color. Nose is quite mild and fresh with notes of citrus. Taste starts of sweet and malty and comes with a dry hoppy aftertaste. Carbonation is minimal to the point of the beer feeling flat. Not quite as good as i hoped.

Hazy red-brown beer with a thin head. Aroma is not that strong, some bready malts though. Taste has that good ESB balance of malts and hops.

fantti (721) - FINLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin oranssinruskeana ja hieman sameana, vaahto on niukka jääden ohuena kerroksena oluen pinnalla. Hajussa on paljon pähkinää, hedelmää ja ruohoisuutta, pehmeää vanilijaisuuttakin löytyy. Maku on jälleen hyvin pähkinäinen ja hedelmäinen, nyt ruoho hieman pienempänä ja vanilijaa ei löydy. Hieman jotain virhemakuakin on joukossa hieman häiriten. Pullon edetessä tämä liimainen ja diasetyylinen maku häiritsi entistä enemmän. Suutuntuma on hiilihappoinen ja humalan puraisukin tuntuu. Hedelmäisemmän puoleinen ESB, eroaa jonkin verran tyylin "esikuvasta" Fuller’sta, mikä on hyvä asia. Jokin tässä jäi kuitenkin vaivaamaan, huonoa pulloa epäillen.

Dark amber a bit hazy color, medium beige head. Aroma of malt, floral hops, citrus, with touch of caramel and licorice. Malty flavor with hoppy bitterness, some caramel and citrus notes. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice and enjoyable ESB.

SperkeleForce (593) - FINLAND - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Pours copper reddish with minimal head. Taste is a nice blend of bitterness and sweetness. Notes of some fruits perhaps some sitrus and also some strong hops. There are not too much of an aftertaste but some bitterness. This an ok bitter Ale.

a nice example of finnish brewing giving almost no hint of an aroma but tasting subtly tempting and surprisingly delightful with clear vibes of citrus and maybe a hint of nuts in the aftertaste. refreshing experience with something still left for improvement, a lot like my summer cottage.
