Bright clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and semi dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Starts with a little floral sweetness. Milky sweetness follows. A touch of papery caramel. Light citrus before the semi dry finish. Pleasantly sweet. Okay!

Average esb. A little metallic. Got the bitters on par. Not a huge esb fan here. Ska does good beer normally.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can courtesy of Casey, cheers mate! Consumed in a field at Truck Festival, Steventon, Oxon 19.07.13 watching The Family Rain (new band for me) Pours hazy mud brown with off white head. Nose is hoppy but my factor 50 suntan spray is rather clouding matters a little. Very soft carbonation, oodles of fresh hop juiciness, leaving a dry tanginess, however the spliff that Gary has just thrust my way is also affecting my taste buds a little. Decent hoppy beer that slips down well whilst watching The Family Rain do their stuff in wonderful blisteringly hot sunshine. Beer & Music festivals, marvellous... A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

12oz can served in a Sam Adams perfect pint
A - Pours a clear amber body with fleeting head.
S - Grainy biscuit, cereal malt, red wheat, clean bread, slightly toasted.
T - Follows the nose with cereal grains, lightly toasted caramel, moderate citrus hops wrap around providing a solid bitterness. The grainy malt holds strong against the semi-aggresive hops. Some floral hops and vanilla come out when warmed up. Finishes dry.
M - Creamy carbonation, grainy, wet the dry on the finish. Light to medium body.
A solid all around ESB. Hops are more pronounced than it’s English counterparts. The citrus plays off the malt well and makes for a hopped up bready ESB.

Poured from a can into a glass. Mrehhh not the best ESB ever, has metallic qualities that don’t help the beer’s flavor. A malty beer with a bitterness that isn’t from hops or finish, just bitter because it’s lacking some... flavorful... OOPMH. Ya’know?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours clear copper with fine off-white head, settles quickly with thin lacing. Aroma is bitter, hoppy, fruity, apple/pear, mild and soapy. Flavor is mildly hoppy, sweet and mildly fruity, with a mildly malty, nutty finish. Flavor has some balance between hop and malt but is slightly underwhelming. Soft to moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture.
