3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2006 Slightly peppery, sharp nose. Copper coloured with a persistant head and plenty of lace. Flavour is quite bitter but with an underpinning sweet-and-sour hop note and some ameliorating malt. Finish is big and round with a lot of buttery bitterness, contradictory as this may sound. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear copper color, with large foamy white head. Some lacing, fairly good retension.
Flowery, fruity hops in aroma.
Fruity, hoppy flavor. Pear, flowery hops, some malty sweetness and a hint of alcohol. Slightly bitter, hoppy, alcohol finish.
Medium carbonation, fairly smoothish.
Not terribly exiting, but nicely fruity and refreshing for a bitter.

Beautiful clear amber-bronze, tall tan head. Slightly metallic initially, grassy hops predominate, then more burnt sugar aromas as it warmed. Delicious palate of butterscotch, green hops, and a nutty finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, very pretty nutty colour with a handsome, tall and bubbly head leaving lots of laces. Unusually potent for an ESB, but in spite of a good and rounded body, the alcohol isn’t really too present. Nutty maltiness with an underlying sweetness and some good, bitter hops in the finish. 150502
