3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dobre coc oczekiwalem wiecej, zroznicowania w smaku nie bylo choc chmiel wyczuwalny. Bitter goryczkowy i dobry, koloru amber, ale jednak prawdziwe ESB z anglii smakuja o wiele lepiej. Mala byla tez pianka i wysycenie, ale to jednak porzadane w tym stylu.

0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Poured clear nutbrown with a small offwhite head. Aroma of yeast, nut and some caramel, light fruits, green apple. Caramel, fruity ale character with hops in the flavor, easy carbonation, dry aftertaste. Ok simple of the style but not a very exciting one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Head is medium, carbonation is very soft (typical for ESB). Aroma and taste is malty, light caramelly well balanced by hops (earthy and resinous). I found minimal ashy flavour in aftertaste (but it?s acceptable). Finish is well-bittered and very long. Real good and extremely drinkable ESB!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A classic English bitter. Toasted, caramelly malt blended with grassy, earthy and floral hops, garnished with some esters resembling ripe red apples and to a lesser extent redcurrant. Hints of toffee as the beer warms. Hearty, full bodied, malty taste, slightly fruity flavour, a strong yet not overwhelming bitterness and a hoppy-fruity aftertaste. Flawless ESB, plain and simple.
