COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Generous malt body thanks to the use of the classic Scottish base malt, Golden Promise. This supports big flavours of guava, mango and citrus to deliver a juicy hop-malt balance that is deceptively easy to drink. A Pacific Northwest jam on a UK classic.

Malts: Golden Promise, Crystal, Cara120
Hops: Amarillo, Columbus, Mosaic

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Tap. Smells amazing: fruity, malty, biscuity and hoppy. Biscuit, caramel, ripe apples, grapefruit. Taste is good, dry. Pretty complex, with caramel, hay, bitter herbs, honey, orange peel, brown bread. The best ESB I've had so far. Highly drinkable.

Bold copper with an off white head. Tropical fruit forward profile. Toasted malts underneath. Some background malt sweetness. Medium bodied. Quite a tasty brew.

Plum, mango, spruce, hops, and grapefruit aromas. The taste is guava, mango, grapefruit, orange rind, marijuana and stone fruits. Translucent reddish amber with a thin, light tan head. This is fruity as all hell and I’m liking it. I also have the munchies.

A lightly hazed dark amber ale esb with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with resinous floral hops, light orange pulp, light tropical fruits, very nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with resinous orange hops, oily mouth feel, nice and smooth, surprisingly well done for the style. Bottle at Pushkinwows New squirter inauguration.

650ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet fruity aroma of mango, pineapple, orange, peach and floral with caramel malt in the background. Sweet fruity flavour of mango, guava, orange peel, peach, apricot, light pine resin and caramel malt with a dry, hoppy, bitter finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Wow, delicious and refreshing. Awesome, a world class ESB.

22oz bottle pours a brown color with a bit of head. Delicious hop balance with the malt. The hop bitterness lingers without any harsh flavors.
