3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki, 14 Dec 2015) Reddish amber colour with brief, frothy beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, red fruit, citrus and apricots. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, orange peel, black-currant, citrus and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks cloudy amber in apperance. Nice malty mouth feel with excellent floral English hops for balance. Quite sweet palate and again I must say I like the -48 IBU Goldings-. Pleasant smooth bitterness kick after the malty sweetness is the key here. Medium body and soft carbonation. All together tasty and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. Pours a beautiful dark hazy coppery amber with a light creamy head that retains and laces quite nicely. Nose is herbal, grassy, nutty, floral - very good and distinctly English. Acquires a pungent yeasty note as it’s warmed. Taste is fruity and fresh, quite tamed and light at first, then starts to build up the rather harsh bitterness of Goldings, finishing very dry and malty. Body medium, carbonation gentle, mouthfeel quite soft. A nice, simple, refreshing brew. Haven’t had Fuller’s ESB in a very long time, but right now I think I like Huvila’s more, even though it might be all too nice and safe.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Stas. Hazy honey-amber with white film. Toast, some date honey aroma, mild bitterness, mouthful maltiness and a little hoppy taste. Medium-bodied, long, bitter finish.
