3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Distinct toast and marmalade aromas. Pretty bitter for the style, but still definitely an ESB. Very tasty. I quite like this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is fruit, citrus, tropical fruit and a hint of earthy malts. The flavor is tropical fruit, citrus, fruit, biscuit malts, fruit and a mildly bitter/tart finish. Leans toward ESB but definitely had APA qualities from the hops.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with white head. Pine, citrus and light fruits, and oats on the nose; follows onto the palate. A bit of malt on the finish with a touch of floral hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
47,3 cl can @ some park, Amsterdam. Rated on 15.07.2014
Aroma has apricot, hay, fruity hops and hints of toffee. Flavour has hops, toffee, minerals and some fruits (apricot). Quite British for an American beer. Solid and rich Bitter to be only 4%. Somewhat uninspiring though.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can from De Bierkoning @ home. Clear amber color. Uneven off white head with reasonable retention. Aroma’s: at first strong resin, fresh flowery hops, later some fruit (mandarin?) and caramel malts. Fruity hops retronasal, somewhat resinous and bitter. Flavor is light bitter, light fruity. Body is rather thin. Finish seems rather tasteless, but eventually some bitterness and resin appear. OK, the strength of this beer is in the aroma rather than the flavor.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pours a copper color but has tons of floaters. Thin and slightly off-white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is nice...hoppy with hints of fresh cut grass, watermelon and citrus. Mouth feel is very watery. Almost no taste but a bit of tart bitterness. A bit of a dank basement flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Gold & burnt amber, hazy throughout & topped with a frothy, chunky, eggshell cap. Lightly bitter, grassy & floral aroma. Very clean, inviting, light, but refreshing. Small hints of mildly bitter citrus peel, melon, hint of white pepper. Taste is as clean & crisp as the smell would indicate. Hop leaves, freshly cut grass clippings with a mild weediness. Lightly peppered grapefruit rind, hints of peach, floral hops, & a zesty finish leaning towards some toasted biscuit & baked bready malt. A light but lovely session beer, I wish this was available to me all the time. One of the easiest drinking beers you’ll find.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can pours a hazy caramel/orange color with small white head but lots of lacing. Aroma has orange peel, apricot and toffee. Taste is as bitter as expected, with slight sweetness in the middle and a bit of mint in the bitter hoppy aftertaste. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Easier to drink than I thought it might be. A very good ESB
