I loved the hops in this beer, great aroma flavour and bitterness. and nicely balanced with the malt.

Bardzo ?adna barwa i przyjemny karmelowy aromat. Delikatna goryczka, pe?ny smak. Nie ma tutaj czego? wyj?tkowo charakterystycznego ale godne polecenia.

MMJL (169) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Z butelki silny zapach kontynentalnego chmielu. Piana niezbyt wysoka, lekko beżowa, powoli opada do cienkiego kożuszka. Kolor piwa to lekka miedź. Aromat ze szkła typowy dla angielskich ale – przyjemne owoce – głównie wiśnie, słód w takim karmelowym typie i wyraźny, ale nie dominujący chmiel. Z pierwszym łykiem odniosłem wrażenie, że mam do czynienia z jakimś lagerem – piwo wydawało się bardzo czyste w smaku. Dopiero później pojawia się przyjemna owocowość, słodowość i pełnia, a na końcu pozostaje w ustach posmak lekkiej słodyczy. Goryczka jest niewysoka, ale raczej przyjemna.

brnandersen (2259) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2015
50 cl. bottle from Fakta discounter. Clear, deep golden colour with an amber tint. Fluffy, off-white head. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, toffee, nuts and floral hops. Taste is lightly bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with fruity notes - apples and caramel malts. Classical British - maybe bordering old fashioned. Still enjoyable, extra credits for the low abv.

Defreni (2724) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2015
Flaske: Glasklar flaske hvilket altid er spøjst. Mette medium øl der hverken gør fra eller til. Meget makro og lige ud af landevejen, men i det mindste var den drikbar i modsætning til Badger fly der blev drukket samtidig.

bottle @ friends. Appearance: pours clear amber with good soapy white head and some lacing. aroma/taste: caramel, bread, toffee, nuts, a bit of wood and floral notes. palette: medium carbonation, medium body, some caramel sweetness, average bitterness, medium duration, dry finish and an oily texture. Overall: nice tasteful ESB with nice malt and floral hop balance.

KoNrRiI (639) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, amber color and a small, white head. Sweet aroma of flowers, caramel, toffee, butter, and fruits. Taste is also malty and sweet; once gain toffee is quite prominent, biscuits, grass, and delicate herbs. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish is bitterer, also a tad more hoppy. Overall not a bad beer. The combination of malty and hoppy flavors works alright here.

MiP (13988) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle, 4.3%. Good fruity aroma, some sweet maltiness. Clear copper colour. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is fruity and creamy with a good bitterness. Distinct aroma hop in the flavour, not surprisingly English-tasting. Good mouthfeel. Very flavourful for the ABV.
