Limpido color ambrato con soffice cappello bianco di schiuma. Una bitter luppolata, biscottata e delicatamente fruttata con note amarognole di caramello. Corpo ed effervescenza lievi, struttura un po’ acquosa. Dissetante.

330ml bottle at Café Sånn in Tromsø. Slowly diminishing pearl white head. Amber coloured body with a slight haze. Moderate, mixed hopped aroma of lemon and grass, malty sweetness beneath. Well blended, succulent taste of orange, lemon, and mild caramel sustained by a bittersweet ending. Fine bodied. Fresh and soft in the mouth. A nice partner to my Tromsø fish burger (05.06.2014).

Nothing special or bitter about this beer. Very faint aroma of hops and malt. Amber color not much head. Mild taste a hint of hops, a hint of malt but nothing very distinctive. Slightly oily feel with no after taste.

Bottle. Clear pale body with medium to high head. Aroma is malty, with gentle caramel touches, very light fruity esters. Taste has medium to higher malty sweet profile, somehow grainy in the after taste, bitterness is light to medium, earthy. High drinkability. Body is full, low carbonation.

August 31st, 2012 - ESB’s aren’t my style of drinking, but a sophisticated, engaging ESB is still something worth trying, even if it is more of a gulping beer than a sipping beer. The ESB nestles nicely in this category, I took a terrible photo of it, but from what I can tell it’s a deep, hazy and murky rusty brown color, from which a mild aroma of pale malts and a slight metallic touch, likely lent by the hops, give this a nice and bitter engagement. The flavor is good too, though most remarkable is how quenching this beer feels. The interaction between the low alcohol content and palate make this a real thirst slaker, and the flavor is no slouch either. The taste is very plain, but there’s a good mango sweetness ornamenting the taste, and a long aftertaste featuring pine hops. This is engaging and affordable enough to be worth bringing to board game night.
