Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin light brown head. Solid aroma of resinous hops, toasted malt, caramel and rye. Very good flavor of toasted malt, caramel, rye and resinous hops. The body is medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. I didn’t expect much, from a rye ESB, but this is very well made and definitely enjoyable.
Beautiful dark amber colour, too much foam. Aroma of caramel, popcorn, nuts, a bit roasty. Slightly sweet, mostly bitter. Very nice taste and strong finish. jjsint (3600) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Bottle ordered online from Beautiful Beers. Orange/brown and pretty much clear with a large foamy beige head. In the bottle, I detect a nutty and slightly smoky malt-led aroma with toffee undertones. When I pour it it takes on an almost floral note in the aroma with a touch of plastic. The taste is sweet with a wonderful balancing leafy hop that never obscures the malty richness. Hazelnut, orange peel and rye bread in the aftertaste. Recommended. simontomlinson (673) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2017
Fluffy beige head stayed on a lightly carbonated oak coloured body.
Big aroma of dark berries, rye, demerara & malt.
Medium body, prickly on the tongue but smoother down the throat. Clean on the aft.
Malt, dark berries, stone fruits, dark sugar & very fruity tangy finish. Very similar to an English Bitter of old.
