My favorite bitter. Pours deep copper in color with a small dense head. Aromas of caramel and toffee. Same goes for flavor, with a nice bitterness to balance the sweetness from the malts. Medium body. A great ale.

Nice amber color with a thick cream top a la nitro-can. Smells of light, sweet malts, some caramel, some milk, some tea and light grassy hops. Pleasant nose. Flavor carries plenty of amber malts, some tea, some slight wood character; overall not particularly complex, but quite well balanced. Full bodied with nitro carb and a forgettable finish. Overall, I find this can of beer pretty enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Has a golden amber colour with a beige, creamy, medium head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, leather, wood, bread, berries and hints of citrus. The flavour is similar but a bit lighter and less complex. Still the sweet malt dominates but has more a distinct touch of the hops. Slick and soft mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. A solid classic.

Deep orange to brown colour. Small bubbly lacing head. Aroma of grain, corn, yeast, a touch of grass & caramel. Medium body, oily texture. Tastes of sweet and bitter. The finish is smoothly bitter, too. It leaves a very positive impression. The best ESB I’ve had by now.
