BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle and served in no-nik imperial pint glass: Clean deep golden near amber hue with a lasting frothy head and good spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hop, dusty pale malts, hint of crystal, very slight butterscotch British Ale yeast ester. The taste is smooth malt versus bittering hop balance. While not overly complex it is an easy drinker and far better than the other offering I had from this brewery. Slight acidic fruitiness from the yeast and some lingering metallic notes. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied with a sprite bite, tinny finish. Overall a solid drinker that methinks would be most excellent on handpull.

TBone (12335) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle at Ravintola Kirjakauppa. Clear nut brown color, small steady off-white head. Nutty caramelly aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Nutty, caramellly, even a bit salty. Close to Fullers Esb. Perharps a bit less hoppy.

olio (5857) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
50 cl bottle @ Oluthuone Pekko.
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Very nutty and malty aroma and flavor, mild hops on the nose, some caramel and dry fruity notes on the flavor. Somewhat creamy and slick palate with a bitter dry malty finish. A straightforward, typical English Bitter. Clean. A bit too English for me though. Decent anyway.

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 2, 2014
Reddish brown pour with a good dirty white head. Quite subdued flavour and aroma profiles. Malty, yeast, fig, prune, grass, slight spice. Not bad.

Aroma: honey, molasses, bread and cereal. Appearance: dark clear amber, medium creamy white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: malty sweets expand, caramel, getting a bit dry in the average-long finish. Overall: excellent ESB, great aroma and palate. Pint at the Cheshire Cheese, Buxton.

Andy_ (632) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 20, 2014
Cask @ Salhojankadun Pub
My first cask ale. No head at all, clear amber colour. Aroma and flavor have gooseberry, red currant and metal. Slight bite of bitterness. Medium full and flat palate. Doesn’t smell, look, taste or feel like a beer at all. Dunno, maybe I don’t get cask ales.

wimpyjoe (3493) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Reddish-brown with next to no head. Hopped with a sweetness and a touch sticky, leading to a small bitterness.

minutemat (1314) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Cask @ Montgomery’s Tower, Shrewsbury. Pours mahogany brown, boasts some strong malts with slight alcohol hint alongside some citrus notes and a bitter finish. Nothing mindblowing.

BOBBDrinker (66) - - MAR 28, 2014
A strong deep brown ale with a tint of red chestnut when held to light, it has a full head and needed to be allowed to settle a first but this gave the aroma time to develop. A hoppy citrus/mango aroma which is mellowed by the malts invited you in. On the tongue there is a battle between the hops and malt, what would be an intense hoppy bitter is reduced to a pleasant and well balanced premium ESB, with just enough alcohol to add the sweetness and warmth this beer needs. A perfect blend of malt, hop and strength.
