good head strong palate with just the right bitterness for me. very drinkable and has become my personal standby when i cannot find something affordable in an ale or stout.

355ml embossed stubby bottle. Amer/gold unfiltered olor, forhty 1 finger head. Herbal, bready nose. Flavor is sticky bready, not the worst beer but pretty lame for the style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"doesn’t differentiate itself from the rest of the line-up enough to be unique...or very good. a below average esb. a little to bitter, and slightly light on the flavor. i’ll pass."

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a nice golden amber with 2 finger head. Aroma of malt, and a bit of pine. Flavor matches aroma, low bitterness and sweet. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Kind of watery and flavor doesn’t linger.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Btl pours a hazy dull,pale amber color. Big,thick,soapy off white head that vanished quickly leaving bits of lace on glass. Smells fruity,with a hint of breadiness,a bit of earth and minerals. Tastes of sweet caramel, bread and a touch of herbal hops. Smooth almost watery mouthfeel,average carbonation, light body and a soft,slightly bitter finish. This is a decent beer that is easy to swallow. Unfortunately this beer is nothing special, just an average offering. Boring!!!!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from bottle at Vecturamesse. Brown colour, Some caramel in aroma and flavour. The flavour is otherwise too bland for an ESB, with too moderate hops. Will re-rate when I get a full bottle.

Yes I was born in the town this beer came from. No it doesn’t really make it that good or anything.

If adequacy were the measure of a beer, this one would be perfect. It smells right, looks right, and tastes right. However, it isn’t special in any way. It doesn’t excite. It doesn’t impress. It just is a decent, drinkable beer.
