500 ml bottle bought at YATA in V City, Tuen Mun.
Translucent light amber honey colour with a thin trace of yeast sediments; One and a half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation; Very fragrant and sweet aroma of Ale malt, with caramel, toasted almond, strong cherry, floral, sugar, spices, strong dry biscuits and light grass; Medium to light sweet taste of Ale malt, with almond, wheaty tartness, light caramel, red fruits, floral, light molasses, light spices, biscuits, lemon, light bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body. Fairly slick palate; Mouth Feel is fair Ale maltyness in a wheat-thinned background. Body is light, with prevailing almond and red fruits but caramel is light. Flowery with light sweetness and spicyness, biscuity with lemon to round. Fairly decent... Hoppiness is floral, spices and light grass in nose; Lemon, floral, light spices, and grass in taste; Bitterness is fair to light for a lasting, low astringent nutty fair malty finish; Quite dry after taste. Almond, fruity and light bitter to mouth.
Comments: It has oats, wheat and rye in the mix, but it seems the wheatyness calls the shots and there's not much oat smoothness, and the rye spicyness is moderate to say the least. Its almond-nutty character is pretty charming, but overall it's on the light side for a ESB. So so.
Bottle from Aldi. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

Butelka 500ml. Bursztynowy kolor. Piana szczatkowa biala szybko zanika. Aromat i smak karmelu ciastek orzechow slodow i ziarna . Slodkawe . Nic ciekawego JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Dark golden to amber in color. Small, but stable light beige head. Interesting scent of light fruit syrup and pale floor malt. Hints of toasted malt, biscuits and herbal hops. Sweet malt and grains in the front. Touch of caramel. Floral hops work their way in. Too much like a scone from my tastes. 1/11

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2016 500 ml clear bottle, bought in London. ABV is 4.7%. Clear deep golden colour, large white head. Aroma of toffee and malts, hints of nuts. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavour has a moderate fruitiness which makes the beer very drinkable, again notes of toffee, malts and nuts. Some very moderate hops in the finish - would like some more hops, please.

Meget lidt humle er det første der slår en, men da denne øl er lavet af alle 4 kornsorter, kan man vel også forvente noget andet og anderledes.
Den er lidt sødlig i det, men ellers har jeg faktisk svært ved at bestemme hvad det er den smager af. vidmidia (286) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAR 30, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Cobreada, límpida. Espuma média de curta duração. Aroma de gramíneas, um pouco cítrico. Sabor amargo leve, com notas gramíneas, de biscoito, de limão, adstringentes e metálicas. Retrogosto adocicado com final metálico. lrkmilani (127) - BRAZIL - MAR 23, 2016
Had it from a bottle. Nice beer with an easy drinkability. Almost no bitterness.

500ml bottle from Ken Warne grocery store, Darlington. Pours an amber colour with an off-white foam head. Aroma of grains, grassy, slightly metallic hop. Taste is grainy, rye, bready, sweetish with some biscuit and grassy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry tangy grassy bitter finish. OK. jjsint (3606) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle from a Costcutter, drunk at home. Reddish brown, clear, quite a lot of carbonation the way so many filtered supermarket bitters do. Slight smell of berries but in all honesty it is marred by an artificial metallic/astringent aroma. Bittersweet and cardboardy. Some nice fruity undertones in the finish. Body tastes flatter than the visible carbonation would suggest. I don’t really care for this.
