Wskiggy (34) - - APR 11, 2019
UPDATED: APR 11, 2019 Bien trop aqueuse...on a l'impression de boire un panache auquel il manquerait des bulles...son seul mérite est l'amertume de ses houblons et encore faut passe

BeerVegard (632) - NORWAY - APR 10, 2019
UPDATED: APR 10, 2019 0,5l bottle. Pours clear amber with off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, british hops, slightly fruity, malt, spice. Taste is malty, caramel, bitter the way it should be, herbal, fruity. Refreshing, great stuff.

bestxiii (230) - Caen, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2019 Nez de caramel industriel. Robe ambrée foncée translucide. Mousse très fine. Bouche avec un légère touche sucrée et une amertume qui ne rend pas juste la bière horrible. Goût caramélisé et de vives céréales herbacées et florales

snowcrash000 (711) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2019 Pours a deep amber, coppery coloration with a small, fizzy head, Smell is quite subdued, but with faint aromas of biscuity, grainy malt and grassy hops. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by biscuity, grainy malt, toffee and lighter grassy, earthy hop accents, with just a hint estery fruit notes, diacetyl and a certain mineral note as well. Finishes with a medium bitterness and a certain mineral note lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. This starts out rather sweet, but is reigned in nicely by a good bitterness in the finish. A nice, easy-drinking Pale Ale with a good overall balance, but suffers slightly from some light diacetyl and mineral notes.

maddestmax (28) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 10, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2019 First taste. It too shabby. For some reason it tastes like I imagine the UK tastes. Lol. Sweet-ish and caramely.

Jabah (2089) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2019 Been curious to try this for a while, and finally did. Had the impression that it may be a little weak and sub-par for an English import...but this did not let me down. Got better and better towards the end of the glass. And....was part of my 1/2 clearance bundle. For a buck a bottle, I am running back to my local retailer tomorrow to buy a few more of these if still there. One of the better ESBs out there.

lmojoh (2105) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2019 Aroma malt korn humle. Utseende halvmørk gylden med hvitt skum. Smak malt korn humle karamell noe frukt. Saftig, fruktig, lett bitter. Flaske på Blå Rock, 50cl 5%

dantomlinson (343) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2019 Bottle from Spar. Clear dark orange appearance with bubbly white head. Malty and caramel aroma. Toffee flavour, slightly bitter. Hints of herbs and fruit.

qt01 (198) - - FEB 4, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2019 It pours a reddish color and has a malty aroma with a sweet malt taste. Drinkable.

Suco (714) - Castellon, SPAIN - JAN 21, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2019 Color naranja cobrizo, cristalina. Dos dedos de espuma con retención media. Aroma a malta, caramelo y algo de miel. Gusto maltoso, caramelo, ligera miel y moscatel, un punto terroso y ligero amargor al final del trago. Cuerpo acuoso. Una bitter de manual, con un poco más de alcohol de lo habitual y bastante gustosa.
