Pretty decent ESB/bitter. Not really a fan of this style, so yeah. It’s okay, but nothing more than that. Better than expected, though.

renffisch (757) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle in a field with some Metalheads. Dark amber colour, thick off white head. Sturdy citric hoppy beer with a well balanced cookie malt note. Very quaffable indeed

From beer temple I loved the smooth caramel flavor, a decent depth of the strength. The hops were a big weird. Serving: bottle

Mye frukt i duften . Lyst rødaktig med lite skum. Vannaktig avslutning, men lang ettersmak.

Not a bad British ale. Smooth with lots of toffee and Caramel notes. Nose is biscuit and a touch of hops. Flavour follows the same path. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ExpendableHero (742) - Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Hazy orange beer with a white head. Aromas of biscuit and fresh dough. Tastes of some muted caramel, biscuit malt, bread, hints of earthiness, and bitter notes. Bittersweet toffee finish. Incredibly smooth and easy to drink. I really enjoyed this.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. A fruity and light bitter smell, later a little bit sweeter. No head, the body is dark red-brown. A nice bitter taste, also some hops. The body is rather light and dry with a flat carbonation.

Bottiglia da 500 ml. Color ambrato con schiuma fine color nocciola di poca tenuta. Al naso un finissimo caramello e malto. Al palato oltre ad un leggero amaro il nulla.

It’s been way too long since I’ve been here. Good to be back. Poured from a 0.5 litre bottle. Cheers to the Iron Maiden neck band which was before my time, but interested me during the teenage years. English goblet. Pours a medium copper with quarter-inch disappearing head. Nose of tree-nuts and earth. Different taste. Earthy with hops, dissipates and comes back with a slight stale flavor. Perhaps the color is rust from the Maiden? Not great, but alas, more flavor than a macro.
