Dark nutty brown appearance with some head. Tastes of caramel, sweet malt and bitter hops. Medium body, very crispy carbonation and a aftertaste of earthy bitterness. Tasty and bitter floydian1 (1464) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 8, 2015
500ml bottle from First Choice Liquor with BB of 1/16. Filtered copper coloured pour with a just off white foamy head and decent lace. Nose and taste is malt driven (caramel, bread, a hint of nuts) with an earthy dry hop finish. Palate is smooth and softly carbonated with a light-medium body and balanced flavours. Not the strongest ESB but still good.

Klart kastanjefarget med fint skum. Knekkebrød, karamell og bitter frukt i duften. Mye det samme i smaken. Munnfølelsen starter noe vannaktig før den går over i en lang, fyldig og bitter avslutning. nihtila (3636) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2015

500ml bottle pours clear copper with decent, lasting off white head. Nose is toasted grain and roasted nuts with a bit of chocolate. Taste is malty, nutty and a bit of vanilla oak. Never gets too sweet, hops are herbal and spicey and bitter the beer beautifully. Low carbonation, medium body. Really good job for the style of beer. simejack (4) - SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2015 does not count
Bottle Aldi - 01/-6/2015. Lovely aroma, light crystal malts, pleasant fruitiness/american hop aroma (citrus/strawberry?). Taste is light/bready malt, caramel, nutty, moderate fruit/hop, very light bitter. Light carbonation, slightly creamy yet crisp mouthfeel, very refreshing. Great beer all round chinchill (4993) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2015
500 ml brown bottle with a BB date of June 2016. Consumed in Largoward, Fife on 2 May 2015.
Nice fresh mix of hops and malts in the aroma with a solid punch of caramel.
The flavor is more malty but about equally bitter and sweet. Marginal 8. MrTipple (4966) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Aroma: grain, bread and caramel malts. Appearance: clear brown, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets continue, grain malts, some caramel. Overall: OK ESB, nothing too extraordinary. Pint at Illicit Still, Aberdeen. YantarCoast (1368) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with no head. Bottled in December 2013, and less than 10 days before use by date... Aroma of chocolate and fruit. Taste is toffee, chocolate and nuttiness, but also some sourness, which is probably down to the beer's advanced age.
