Orange toffee color. Small off-white head. Little lacing. Nice mixture of hops and malt. Orange marmalade. Taste is a creamy caramel and malt. Some dark fruits. Some sweetness but balanced well with a slight bitterness. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2767) - South Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2015
500 ml brown bottle labeled "Dark Ale" with a BB date stamp of 31 Dec. 2015. Dark red-brown body has a large, frothy tan head and leaves some lacing. Very appealing malty aroma. The flavor follows. Neither is particularly complex. O: a well crafted, extra malty ESB. Worked well with a water buffalo burger.

MarkoNm (1194) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 15, 2015
Pours a clear dark amber almost coppery color, topped with a medium non-lasting tan head. Mild malty aroma, some fruity and acaramel notes later on. A bit of bubblegum aroma initially. Taste starts sweet and slightly watery, followed by a very mild bitterness and a bit soapy feel. Easily drinkable, although could do with a bit more taste.

A surprising little gem, very clean with a spicy toffee taste. The beer itself is a clear ruby colour
