Smak och doft av humle, malt, rostad smak, en aning karamell och nöt. Vattnig och saknar kropp.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 4.7%. Slightly farty aroma. Clear chestnut colour. Small frothy white head. The flavour starts off malty, turning roasted with a sort of spicy malt note. Later comes a mild grassy hoppiness followed by a medium bitterness which is quite clean.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with quickly vanishing off-white head. Clear aroma of hop, malt and dried fruit. Bitter, hoppy aroma with a fruity note. Dry finish.
OK, but more like an English IPA than an ESB.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 500 ml bottle. It pours a lightish brown with some light haze and a floppy cream head. Initially got some floral notes on the nose, followed by caramel. The caramel really comes through in the taste together with biscuit-like roasty malt, overlaid with a restrained hop bite that adds a lemony note at the end. Uncomplicated but quite elegant ESB.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle @ Nurmo. Rated on 26.06.2010
Aroma has toffee, some English hops and some caramel. Flavour has resiny English hops, some toffee, caramel and hints of licorice. Not the most typical ESB. Probably the best palindrome‐beer in the world.
