Iím normally not a big fan of ESBís.....but the guy at the beer store sold me on it. Pours out a somewhat murky dark caramel color with a tiny white head. Aroma slightly bitter, little toffee. Taste is sweet malts, toffee, caramel and slight fruit. Finish is a dry and bitter. I liked this one.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It was hard to discern the appearance since it came in a brown bottle, but what I could see looked quite drinkable. Aroma is strongly malty upon first opening the bottle. Flavor is thin but pleasantly malty, with fruity hints and a smooth finish that has a slight hoppy-bitter undertone. Pleasant and refreshing to drink.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red copper with a an off white head. Very mild nose of toffee, bananas, and hops. Round on the palate with just enough carbonation to keep it from tasting flat. Not a whole lot going on here except the nice straightforward bitter hops on the finish. I taste maybe a hint of cherry where the malt is supposed to be, thatís about it. Simple, but Iíve had a lot worse.

Bottle at Proeflokaal, march 07, shared with that dutchman, Jbrus. Very nice, bittersweet spicy aroma. Great spicy, fruity, nutty flavor with some light caramel notes. Chewy, biscuity malt and a nice filling sensation. Golden, shinny color and a nice white head. Very nice chatty ESB with a nutty touch
