3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber gold with a creamy off-white head. Aromas of floral hop over mild roast malt. The flavor is intense and mild at the same time. Strong floral, but not very bitter; strong caramel but not very sweet. Somewhat spicy. I’m fairly certain the style is nailed here. Unless the flavor is too intense for our brethern over the pond. Oh to be in England.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden ale with a thick off white head. Light honey malt but not much in floral hops in aroma. Nice cookie dough malt with restrained bitterness and good citrus notes, lingering in finish. Some nice butterscotch and earthy nuttyness gives this ESB some good character. A lighter ESB fine for summer.

Nice beer. Caramel malt, citrus hops andva touch of honey in the aroma. Flavor has a good dose of caramel but even a better hit of citrus. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
somehow going off in different directions, drawn and quartered. Somewhat watery mouthfeel. Not best of the line, but not bad. Carbonation instead of high hops

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large, frothy white head and a hazy golden body. The head sticks around for a long while. Aroma of nectarine and more citrus hops. Taste is watery and very bitter throughout. Not really balanced or good to the style. Lively mouthfeel and watery bubbles. Interesting beer.
