A big bold, in your face, malty beer! A touch of sweetness to start, nuttiness to follow and hoppy-ness to finish. Give it a little time and let this beer develop and tantalise those taste buds with its powerful and delectable kick of Willamette hops. A complex copper coloured fusion of distinction. Theres a lot going on with this cheeky little beer, so take your time and sup it up.

Benzai (15126) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Bottle @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared by Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear autumn reddish color, full sized off-white head. Aroma is fresh, piney, spruce, hops. Taste lightly malty, hoppy, very nice piney flavor, spruce, freshly cut wood, a superb smooth bitterness and a touch of caramel. Medium body, soft yet suitable carbonation. Very nice!! Would drink this on a regular basis if it were available around here. Impressive stuff.

JorgeLee (2017) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
Cask in the Kings Head W2. Deepish red brown colour. Slightly murky, white head. Strong fresh hop characterplus toasty amber malts. If this were American would clearly be an amber ale. Good combination lf bitter hoppy fruitiness and solid malts. A nice modern beer.

Fin (10307) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Cask, handpump at The Parcel Yard, Kings Cross Station, London, Wednesday 26th March 2014 Pours a reddy/brown colour with a off-white creamy head. This is an excellent ESB its tangy, fruity yet with a pleasant little seam of hops, really good beer. Nice malty character throughout, fresh and very, very moreish. I dont see so many really good ESBs these days but in a changing beer world with more golden hoppy beers coming to the fore here is a very good example. I reckon Steve Silktork would really like this beer! A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

thewolf (12373) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Thanks bigbro. Pours clear red to chestnut with a large, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, red berries, mild chocolate. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good crisp malts, chocolate, red berries, a bit grainy. Quite bitter lingering finish. A bit of yeasty off-notes. Good though.
