quando me l’hanno stappata davanti avevo una sete boia, perciň vi posso dire che comunque il suo l’ha fatto, poi non addentriamoci in sciocchi commenti inutili...

Fairly dark for an ESB. Bottle to glass with a thinner head and a medium to darker caramel pour. Nose is plenty of caramel and sweeter malts with some biscuit qualities. Some nice pleasant notes or spicy hops and mild citrus that’s muted but noticeable. Smooth and respectably easy drinking. I dig it.

Clear reddish colour. Toast and malted barley aroma. More of the same on the palate with a bit more sweetness and corn mash than expected. Nothing special

BierMeHoos (333) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2015
#300 rating. Poured from a large bottle. Appearance is a deep copper color with white head. Aroma is toffee, raisin, and orange. Palate is medium. Taste is nice toffee and malt biscuit flavors, with a tinge of raisins like a port, maybe a hint of chocolate. Pretty good, something different.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Poured into an English tulip pint. Pours a clear deep amber with a minimal off-white head. Malty nose. Taste is all malt with a touch of light hop bitterness on the finish.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Marrón oscura, ligeramente rojiza. Escasa espuma ocre, pero duradera. Aroma a cacao con algo de fruta roja. Gran cuerpo con buena cremosidad y un justo tono, bastante presente, de carbonatacion. Y sabor excelente con una mezcla ideal de dulce malta y amargor marcado con recuerdos de café y chocolate (postgusto evidente). Excelente.
