Poured cloudy despite having sat for a day. Amber in colour with big frothy white head. Slight hop aroma. Quite a sweet taste. Yeast flavour makes it reminiscent of home brew. Not terrible, but not good either.

Essex (51) - Cardiff, WALES - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle purchased from Discount Supermarket. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy light orange colour a white head and decent lacing. Smells citrusy and almost very much like a hefeweizen, so citrusy too. Tastes lovely, very quaffable. Malts and hops equally balanced making a very refreshing, crisp taste. Overall a brilliant beer, I could drink this all day.

50 cl. bottle shared / thx to tderoeck – very slightly hazy, apricot, amber coloured with a white head, smells like a canned fruit salad, punch-style, peaches, canned cherries, pineapple,… fruity yeast, taste is touch toned down canned fruit salad, mainly peach, fruity yeast, pineapple, citrus, flowers, very fruity for an ESB, medicinal bitterness in the finish, hay, way too carbonated, apparently we were supposed to pour it in a jug before drinking it, evidently

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2012
pint size bottle, thanks Tderoeck for the share. Dorée/foin brumeuse, col blanc. Arôme est assez fleuri et houblonné avec pas mal de fruit. En bouche, fruité agréable allant vers ananas, la pêche restant douce, le tout fini sur un pointe d’épice venant de la levure, assez épais en fin de bouche. Pour une ESB, j’apprécie bien le profile fruité tropical pour une amertume de fin de bouche fleuri.

14/IV/2012 - 50cl bottle @ home - BB: IV/12 (2012-356) Thanks to Bryn for the bottle!

Clear blond beer, aery big white head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: pretty fruity, apple sauce, upon adding some of the yeast it gets even more fruitier with hints of pineapple and ripe peaches. MF: very carbonated, light to medium body. Taste: fruity start, some pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, bit grassy hops. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, bit medicinal, citrus fruits, touch of barnyard. Not too bad.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle from Brewer’s Droop, Bristol. Clear amber with decent carbonation and a massive white head. Citrus fruit aroma with some marmalade. Biscuit malts flavour with a touch more fruit and decent, bitter finish. Good.
