4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark amber with a bubbly white foamhead that settles to a nice attractive layer throughout the session. With it’s foam layer and that reddish brown color it is certainly an attractive beer. Equally attractive is the aroma, sweet from candied fruit and flowery from some exotic plant. It is one of the most delicious nose of any beer. The taste is carrying on feeling created by the start, but here hops are playing an important part as the bitterness is playing hide and seek with the sweetness from crystal malts. Very balanced, almost a tad too much bitterness, but it’s the kind that makes you think about when you can have another swig. It’s simply delicious too. Medium to full in the mouth with classic english lower carbonation. I still prefer the London Pride, but the ESB is a classy great beer from a classy great brewery. I like.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Part 3 of a "why haven’t I reviewed this before?" series]
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours clear deep reddish amber with a finger of dense, off-white head which dissipates into a thin sheen. Thick lacing and lots of small bubbles visible. Glowing! Aroma is rich, sweet, malty and fruity but also comes off as fairly fresh and light. There’s a lot of marmalade or candied orange up front, edges of citrus and maybe a touch of apple juice, a light yet hearty honey and biscuit malt backbone, bit of golden syrup making an appearence maybe and a whiff of clove. Fresh, grassy hops emerge as it warms. Very well balanced aroma! Taste is sweet and fruity to begin with with more citrus, apple and now blood orange, joined by light caramel malts which merge into biscuit and slightly cakey notes. Finish is long, dry, peppery and mildly bitter. Medium body and super smooth on the palate with a touch of tingly carb to boost the refereshment factor. Fairly light and refreshing AND rich and subtle at the same time, so good for winter or summer, rain or shine! Really can’t fault this much; what a phenomenal beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Mahagony/amber coloured. Small head. Aroma of toffee and british hops. Taste is caramell, biscuit, toffee, nuts, butterscotch and some citrus fruits. Low carbonation. A fine ale but too much diacetyl for my liking. Still good though.
