Bottle@bishops, järntorget. Darkish amber, clear. Very english strong bitter/esb aroma: Light nutty bready malts, herbal hops, some earthyness. Dry body, bready herby finish. Darker caramels, dry hazelnuts. Ok bitter. English seems to be ocean’s trademark.

Aroma is very laidback darker malts, caramel and discrete hops. The flavor mild fruits, malts and very supressed hops. The finish is mid bitter.

Bottle, thanks to Ronny, split at Colin and the Vikings tasting "After Party", Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Clear dark amber with a good sized light beige head that retains well. Nose is biscuit malt, caramel, light hop presence, vanilla. Taste comprises caramac bar, woody tinges, bsicuit malt, more vanilla, bitter orange notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, not sure the style category is quite right here, not quite strong enough IMHO!

Wonderful fragrance. A little carbonic acid. Not at all strong in flavor but tasty nonetheless. Long aftertaste. This beer I’m impressed of. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
