09-08-16 / 330ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head which disappears very fast. I taste something but cant define it. Taste is bitter like a ESB should be and some light malt aromas.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good quality ESB. The name would imply something hoppier but whatever the case it’s a good well balanced English bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cerveza de color amarillo naranja medio con una buena cabeza de color blanco. Aroma moderado a malta, caramelo, fruta dulce y lúpulo.
Sabor a fruta dulce y amargo suave con un regusto seco y amargo, buena cerveza, pero nada especial.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml. bottle sampled thanks to tderoeck! Bottle states SEP 2015 not sure if BBF or bottled by date. Very pale, faintly hazy golden. Nose is interesting ,massively sweet candy mixed with apple candy, very sweet hops & dash of vanilla. Very weird but not unpleasant, in a fun candy-like way. Taste is a letdown unfortunately after the smell, totally weird, cardboard, paper, oily, chemical, bald, mildly unpleasant chemical, dat watery, big letdown after the interesting smell, not too good. Too bad.

Thnx to Tderoeck. Pours rather clear blonde. Smell is sweet, dry malts. taste is very very mild bitterness, but also buttery-yeasty and malty. Sounds like a lot, but the beer is actually buttery/wattery, and -luckely- not too intense.

330ml bottle from Vienés Café in Viña del Mar. Pours a clear deep gold color with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Early caramel makt flavor then hoppy bitterness dominates. Body too weak to support the big hop presence. Hoppy aftertaste.
