3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Poured a clear dark amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is weak hoppy malt leading to medium bitter flavour with a smooth almost creamy hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is really one of the best ESB’s I’ve had. It looked great and tasted even better. The hop combination was perfect. Served a little cooler that it should have been but that made little difference.The Swedes are showing the Brits how to brew an ESB!
