Bottled@Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Thanks to the guys from Ölfrämjandet for sharing. Deep reddish orange colour, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, diacetyl, caramel, some grass and mild floral hops as well. Flavour is quite much the same, but more bitter and dry. Rather interesting ESB.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle at ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting. Gold, hazy, lasting beige head. It’s an ok amber/ESB style of malts. Just not my style for this one. But still drinkable enough.

Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. Rather floral aroma. Med body; foamy carb. Flavor is passing strange. It’s a little sour; a little earthy. Floral is present, but it’s background. Not exactly my idea of an ESB. Drinks ok though.
