Amber colored , white lasting head. Mix of malt aromas, caramel and biscuit the strongest, lemony. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, herbal hoppiness, lemon zest and some fruit. Medium bodied. I think I like this one much more than I should but for some reason it speaks to me!

Malty, light sweetness, bit of lemon. Much like the others. Not bitter at all, malty sweetness.

foxo82 (784) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours blonde with very little aroma (slight citrus) and a dry citrus hop finish. Refreshing and drinkable but underwhelming.

Quite a plain tasting beer, almost lager ish in its aroma and taste. Slightly cloudy golden appearance

Maakun (1307) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Clear light golden with white head, lots of lacing. Light dry malts, lots of aromatic hops with flowers, herbs and some pine. Sour lemon, dough and a bit of yeast. Quite dry. Decent stuff.

MichaelAwesome (5356) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
Nice one with a slight hoppy background, some vanilla and butter in the taste. Easily drinkable, sweetish and balanced in the carbo. Not a bad one.

McTapps (5371) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a clear deep light golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and barley with some fainting hoppy hints. Taste of mild hops, vanilla, barley, caramel, citrus fruits, berries and malt. Mild-bitter finish with a light grainy-sweet touch. Easy to drink and tasty, enjoyed it.

Clear golden color with a clear white head. Fruity zitrus, elder flavor. Initially sweet later slightly bitter. The aftertast is a little bit watery.

Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Blonde bien effervescente, houblonnée avec une pointe de zeste de citron sur la finale. Agréable.

Derbeth (449) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Golden colour, medium size head that lasts quite long. Aroma: a bit aggressive resin, floral, gooseberry, maybe a little wheat. Light bitterness, light sweetness. Light body, soft carbonation. In no way is this a typical ESB - rather a light ale with dominating floral character. Ok.
