3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a deep clear burnt orange. A small fizzy head did not hang around long, but good lacing on the glass. Aromas of green hops are dominating with some nice floral notes. A hint of sweet malt in the aroma as well. Taste is also hoppy but they taste more like noble hops. A grainy backbone asserts itself rapidly, battling with the hoppy bitterness. Almost no hint of the maltiness I detected on the nose. Instead a delicious spiciness adds a wonderful new element to this ESB. Texture is medium. Medium-high carbonation. Very lively on the tongue. Texture is somewhat oily. A wonderfully different beer. very tasty
