27/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 30/IV/13 - (2012-762)
Clear amber red beer, big yellow to beige creamy head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: citrus, little metallic, grassy, some paint, touch of caramel sweetness, some overripe fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: citric start, pretty fruity, grassy, bitter hops, some grapefruit, caramel and malty backbone. Aftertaste: some toast, caramel, bit grassy, some citrus. ESB? I’d say APA, but that’s just me... I’m suspecting American hops in this one...
On tap at Beershow, Milan on 30-Jan-2017, and served in a shaker. Clear reddish brown in colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt and hops. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is of sweet fruit, pale malt, toffee, chocolate and floral hops. Pretty good - a smooth and hoppy bitter ale. artemb (1119) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 9, 2016

Color ambar, aroma malta, caramelo, cuerpo medio. KarlPopper (120) - Krakow, POLAND - APR 13, 2016
Pours ruby, malty aroma typical for ESB. The taste is malty and hoppy. As for classic ESB which is in fact sweet in taste this beer is extremely bitter with strong herbal bitterness. On the one hand it is a craft berr revolutionary interpretation of the style, and an interesting one. On the other hand the bitterness makes it much less drinkable than expected. In a way it tastes like English IPA. pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle - Slight hazy amber colour, small white head, good retention. Delicate hop aroma, some caramel, roasted nuts, raisins. Taste is toffee, biscuit, peach, fine herbal and resinous hops, smooth bitterness in the end. Medium body and carbonation, pleasant bitter and fruity finish. Balanced bitter but nothing special.

0,33 l bottle, Sörmanufaktura.Leighton (22019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Semidark hazy ale with a small off white-tan head. Aroma of some toasted grains, light caramel. Easy, sugary taste with some burnt caramel, easy light hops, some nuts and roasted character. Not bad but excepted more.
Keg at Archea - Florence. Pours a rather fetching clear Amber with a thick, creamy tan cap. The aroma holds dried berries, faint leathery earth and toasted grains. Medium sweet flavorbwith slight grassy hops, crackers, leaves, more dried berries, fruit leather. Light-medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet on their josh but still pretty well balanced, with more fruits, some ripe orange, grain, leafy and grassy bitterness. Not bad. Pretty good take on a British style.

Extra Special Bitter in bottle at Beerspecialist Budapest. This is a tipical ESB with a little better feelings. Not bad. Luca78 (43) - ITALY - MAY 26, 2015
On tap. Nothing of special and not so drinkable. No flavour and bold. To much malty for me. Forgettable. mike_77 (7011) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Red brown colour. Aroma of toasty caramel malts. Flavour has a great blend of hop bitterness and sweet, toasty malts.
