3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2010 Malty sweetness with a dry hop bitterness in this ale. I can’t get it where I live so I have to travel 140 kms to the nearest next large town to buy it at a large liquor chain. It is well worth the trip each and every time. Cheers

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 0.50l, shared with Gregor. Pours clear deep amber color with thin creamy off-white head, poor lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, grass and some dust. Taste starts with light sweet caramel and mild toasted malt, follows bready, grassy and a bit papery with dry mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Seemed very average to me...

Nut brown color with big white head. Aroma is roasty, little caramel and malt, fresh and fruity. Taste is roasty with a good malt body. Spicey and earthy hop notes. Finish is hoppy, bitter, more dry than malty. Carbonation is lively, maybe little bit too high for english ESB. Good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear nut brown colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, red berries, subtle orange, slight nuts and spicy, earthy hops.
Taste is quite fruity of caramel, light roasted malts, red berries, slight nuts and spicy, earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A slightly roasted, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A quintessential British ESB, malty, fruity and bitter. Simple and average overall but well balanced.
