4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On hand pump at Young and Jackson’s, Melbourne.
This beer is an excellent example of an ESB however at 3.9% it is a little weak to be in style.
Best tasted on the hand pump - pours slightly cloudy with a creamy, persistent head.
Reasonable aroma - nothing amazing but solid.
The taste is excellent - right down the middle of an esb with low carbonation.
I agree with previous comments that there is a high amount ofbdark malt here, but overall this deserves more praise than its received here.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber hazy color with a medium head. Great malty aroma. Tasting caramel, dark malt and grapefruit. You somehow have the feeling that they used a fair bit of dark malt to compensate for the low ABV and the therefore light malt body. Perfect carbonation. Nevertheless a good beer.

Amber pour from bottle, big bubbly head. Nice restrained english hop and malt aroma. Very high carbonation lessens the enjoyment. biscuity malt flavours, little hop flavour, low bitterness. A half decent session beer.

Bought it on special, had a read of label and realized it was a "mid strength" alc beer so felt a little ripped off coz nothing on main label to say so. But then I tasted it and it was lovely. nice hoppy aroma, full body and satisfying finish. Quite good. Only neg was highly carbonated but may have got bad sample/

Bottle from Dan Murphys. Copper/gold, medium white head, an amazing beer for 3.9%, could happily drink all day. Nutty caramel malt, grapefruit/citrus/tropical fruit hops, nice bitter-sweet finish, full mouthfeel. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has a very good overall flavour and mouthfeel for a lower strength beer. For me, the thing that let's it down is that it is over carbonated.
