3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml into a tulip
Corked and caged
Hazy orange amber color, one finger light brown head. Nice looking carbonation and good head retention.
Lots of orange, candied orange and caramel backbone. Good nose. Vibrant and fresh.
Orange, pine and grapefruit bitterness with enough caramel to subdue it. Just some touches of plastic but not enough to hurt it.
Lively carbonation and feel. Medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation.
Solid ESB/ APA whatever. Good beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great to look at - a clear rich sunset amber with a fluffy white head. Noble hops are prominent in the nose, along with lighter scents of vanilla, lemon, bread and pepper. Taste has some rich malt up front with a hop bite in the mid-palate. Citrus, vanilla, cloves and cinnamon come through at the end. Fresh, clean finish with a spicy aftertaste. Smooth, complex and really nice.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a pale opaque orange with a 4-5cm of fluffy white head. Orange and zest aromas predominantly. Flavour is really sweet citrus with a light malt. Thin/medium body with a fair whack of bitterness. Towards the bottom of the glass it had a weird ashtray taste but until then, a solid ESB.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dull orange with a whopping big, fluffy off white kind of yellow head. Slowly bubbling down. Nose is orange - slight zest, reminiscent of an old fashioned preperation. Very light and sessionable stuff. Loads of orange and lemon zest. Clean, light biscuit. Pretty solid but a touch over carbonated

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: orange citrus and hops.
Appearance: strong dark golden colour with a dark cream head, cloudy.
Taste: tastes of an orangey English bitter, lovely citrus hops, some flavours of cereals too. Medium bitterness.
Palate: strong carbonation but lovely aftertaste, medium mouth feel.
Overall: a great tasting beer, love the orange citrus flavours, tastes a mix between an English bitter and an IPA surprisingly drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From AC Beer Fest. The aroma is caramel, but not sweet. The flavor is more or less the same. Caramel red in color. Finishes a little dry, bitter. Not great.
