UPDATED: MAR 16, 2019 Õlle on selline jook, et iga uus kord kui klaasi või pudeli suule tõstad, siis leiad midagi uut, sõltuvalt tuhandest-miljonist pisiasjast, mis hetke olukorda mõjutavad. Seega piirdun iga õlle juures selle tekstiga. NeverBinge (325) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2018
This is a traditional English IPA, as opposed to more modern interpretations of the genre. In accordance, you get a clear, light brown ale with a fairly minimal head and a relatively slim hoppy (slightly floral) nose on top of a deeper, malty one. Bitterness is assertive and juicey, but doesn't come with a kick. Sweetness (on the tongue) is very restrained, just sufficient to provide an overall impression of roundness. Yes, I like it a lot - certainly rather more than most raters here. But perhaps ESB needs to be in your 'beer heritage' for you to agree with me, and I can understand why modern IPA aficionados might wonder what this beer is trying to be. Nevertheless, I strongly urge people to sample this one with an open mind - you might just discover a treasure. Desverger (18428) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2018

Ølfestival København 2018 - fuzzy amber coloured pour with a white head. Citrus fruity hoppy and malty, some grapefruit and tangerine, citrus rind, pine, some caramel, light to medium body, resinous subdued hoppy bitter finish.
Bottle at Scottish pub in Keila. Pours dark golden yellow colour. No head. Sweet, malty, hoppy, slightly fruity, bit corny aroma. Slightly hoppy and malty beginning. Bitter in the middle. Very bitter finish. Bitter aftertaste. No crispness at all. Reminds hoppy english ale. Low or rather undercarbobated, medium bodied, slightly buttery or oily pale ale. Not good, but not very bad either. Not an IPA. azzurro (969) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2018
As an IPA, this is my worst experience so far. This is a mix of a bad lager with a bad pilsner. Simply below average. Don't how the SAQ is not ashamed of selling this.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2018 Fles 50cl thuis. Zeer hoppig, bitter, wat scherp. Typisch English Ale smaak aanwezig. (3-2013). AWS9 (825) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2018
Bottle. Light amber pour. Bitter character (as in the style). Sharp hops that I found a bit too skunky. Same for the aroma. Sticky mouthfeel. Not for me. Eructoblaster (5085) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2018
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a limpid, golden, carbonated body with a thin, lasting, white creamy head. Malty aroma with bready, nutty and grassy hints. Hops are barely noticeable. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries herbal, grainy, bready, and woody notes. Ends with a decent bitter/woody finish. Average IPA. IPACommander26 (14) - - MAY 25, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2018 Bottiglia. Colore giallo oro, carbonatazione bassa con perlage finissimo, schiuma fine, compatta ed evanescente. Corpo tenue, abbondante luppolatura che rende la birra secca fino alla fine MarkoNm (3810) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 24, 2018
Pours hazy, fiery orange amber, topped with medium sized offwhite head, not too lasting. Malty nose with lots of biscuits, slight soy sauce and a bit of dry fruits. Malty start with mild sweetness, biscuits and caramel. Moderate bitterness, grassy and herbal. Quite lasting aftertaste. Sharp and a bit medicinal. English style IPA, but not the nicest.
