3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ 111, Castellanza. ambrata carica, quasi ramata, limpida, con una sottile velatura. schiumba beige (pochissima) abbastanza fine ed abbastanza persistente. Aroma maltato che tende al biscotto al burro, qualcosa di toffee, frutta secca(mandorla), e lieve agrumato. Luppolo inglese ben riconoscibile. Gusto abboccato all’ingresso, di butterscotch, poi vira sulla frutta secca ed il finale è sia tostato che luppolato. Poco corposa, poco calda, quasi non carbonata, equilibrata ed armonica

Bottle; deep bronze; minimal head; aroma of stewed fruit; taste is...well, Fullers ESB, basically; perhaps a little more roasted malt and slightly drier; still, anything that tastes like Fullers ESB has to be a good thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours golden-amber with a small off-white head, which dissipates completely. Aromas of spruce and citrus. Initially somewhat flat in taste (note: I did have a bottle that was only 2 weeks before the BB date), but a rich hoppiness emerges after a second and moves into a pleasant, slightly sour finish. Medium carbonation with a somewhat light body and a sourish aftertaste. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle bb06/2014. Love the bottle design and CAMRA-approved stamp...Pours a lucent copper, with some reassuring dregs. Splendid radiant aroma of quince, caramelised orange, Lady Grey. Very reminiscent in fact of Anchor Liberty Ale - which it coincidentally happens to share the Cascade (no Fuggle?) hop profile with. Taste balanced by fair use of 5% alcohol and orange marmelade and some spicy bread crust. Side notes of liquorice, aniseed, buttered toast. Big fan of these, in all of their sessionable modesty.

Bottle at Lerbäcks Teather outside of Örebro. Honey on the nose, also malt and flowers. Sweet malty taste with caramel. Nice but not very exciting.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottle-conditioned beer has a deep colour and a deep, rich taste. The 5% alcohol gives a good mouth-feel with a lingering flavour of Goldings hops. Good bronze colour and gently carbonated without too much head. A really good pint of ESB.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.50l. Hazy orange brown color with large fluffy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of ripe fruits, grassy hops, biscuit malt and yeast. Taste starts with light sweet toasted malt, follows by fruity acidity and mild spicy mouthfeel, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, slick texture and lively natural carbonation in palate.
