330ml bottle into glass. Smoky malt nose, copper-red beer with two finger white head. Medium carbonation. Mineral water spritzy taste with malty palate. Finish has lemons, caramel and hops. Nice bitter, good session beer. jmgreenuk (9861) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear mediun amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt light citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light refreshing zesty citrus hop palate and a lingering light toothpaste bitter finish. Mediun bodied with average carbonarion.

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.
Good bitter! monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 27, 2014
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/ vinhol (344) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2014
On tap at brewery malty aroma deep amber in colour white head taste is malty with a hops ShaneJ (898) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2014
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. Supertrev (102) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2014
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.

On tap at the Great Brittan Hotel, a copper tinted amber colour slightly hazy. Very minimal head. Nose is interesting, earthy and woody with notes of caramel, floral hops and spices. Medium bodied with a dry mouthfeel. Sweet malts flavours with an earthy character. Notes of grapefruit in the finish. Decent
