This is a decent ale that I tried when I was in England - It runs a bit closer to the amber ales and isnít overly bitter like some - It has a toasty and caramel taste to it. Definitely enjoyable :)

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Dark brown body allowing shadows through with a light tan creamy decent sized head. Spotty lacing.
Aroma: Rich caramel candy aroma with a bit of a wood scent.
Taste: Biscuit and toast flavors with a touch of roasted nuts.
Mouthfeel: It has a good mouthfeel. Nothing spectacular to point out, it just feels right for this beer giving it a medium presence on the palate with a touch of bite from the roasted grains.
Overall: Itís a fairly average ESB. Itís an import so Iím willing to try it again if I can get it fresh. It didnít have as much of a caramel overtone as many other ESBís that Iíve had, but it has a nice biscuit quality which is pleasant enough to make it an enjoyable drinking experience. Itís in that middle ground of not recommending but not warning against drinking.

Non male questa bitter inglese dal colore rosso molto scuro, la schiuma Ť ovviamente minima, molto leggera e beverina. Líaroma Ť di malto, mentre al sapore si sente caffŤ tostato, amara il giusto.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
I donít want to down rate this beer, but its taste like a wrong made coffee with beer.
Advantage : The caramel feels very good, but too much CO2.
