(Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki, 14 Dec 2015) Reddish amber colour with brief, frothy beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, red fruit, citrus and apricots. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, orange peel, black-currant, citrus and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.

Looks cloudy amber in apperance. Nice malty mouth feel with excellent floral English hops for balance. Quite sweet palate and again I must say I like the -48 IBU Goldings-. Pleasant smooth bitterness kick after the malty sweetness is the key here. Medium body and soft carbonation. All together tasty and enjoyable. T3M3 (4) - FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015 does not count
Tastes like non beer. One of the worst ever. No taste of hops or anything. Shitty Shitty bang bang.

Bottle. Pours a dark coppery color with a thin head. Aroma of roasted malt and bit of citrus. Taste of roasted malt, bit of citrus and grain. Coarse bitterness that lingers into the finish. Medium body with bit of a grainy feel. Farly average ESB, expected a bit more. nihtila (3731) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Stas. Pours orange to bronze with a medium head, aroma of fruits, hops and floral notes, flavor is bitter with malt and floral notes, medium bodied. mike_77 (6876) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2014
Light brown with slight haze. Aroma has some sweet malts and dried fruits. Flavours of dry, floral hop and sweet, slightly chocolatey malts. Bittersweet and full flavoured. Kauge (1986) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. Pours a beautiful dark hazy coppery amber with a light creamy head that retains and laces quite nicely. Nose is herbal, grassy, nutty, floral - very good and distinctly English. Acquires a pungent yeasty note as it’s warmed. Taste is fruity and fresh, quite tamed and light at first, then starts to build up the rather harsh bitterness of Goldings, finishing very dry and malty. Body medium, carbonation gentle, mouthfeel quite soft. A nice, simple, refreshing brew. Haven’t had Fuller’s ESB in a very long time, but right now I think I like Huvila’s more, even though it might be all too nice and safe.
