Flaska på Ölmässan Örebro. En helt ok ESB från för mig ett helt okänt bryggeri. Men alltid kul med nytt.

Douberd (2597) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
500 ml bottle at home, into a Guinness glass, ABV 5.1% Deep orange colour on a clear body, with minimal activity in it. Almost two fingers of off-white head, good density, average retention. Medium lacing left on the glass. Aroma of hops, better that I expected, citrus, orange peel. Taste also of citrus, orange peel, a bit of cookie dough, well balanced with the malty elements, a bit of grass, some fruity hints on the finish. Bitter but not extremely so, with the bitterness having a short duration. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. I was expecting a thirteen in the dozen but this is actually very good.

Backlog. Tried it bottled. Just didn’t do it for me, not enough malt-base to be called an ESB according to me.

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
500ml Bottle: shared between four at the second ever Shrewsbury Bottle Share on 24th Feb 2014, cheers Luc for bringing it. This is my fourth beer from these guys and they have all been better than OK so far, this didn’t hurt their reputation either. Pours a pleasant light amber colour with head that is almost white, if a little thin in places. A slightly more malty nose than hoppy, some subtle fruitiness with a caramel undertone to the aromas. The taste is also leaning towards the malty side although there is a drying finish to each sip. Semi-sweet biscuity feel to the flavour with some caramel loitering about as well. Touches of a citrus nature calm the malts down and help to balance the beer somewhat, an easy drinking brew that helped the evening to flow nicely.
