chicagobears (474) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a ruby red into Sprecher pint glass. My label reads 5.5% ABV. Biscuity aroma with some floral notes. Taste is juicy with a balance of dark cherries, caramel, and toasted biscuit. Finishes with a long and soothing spiciness. Very nice Scottish bitter.

Piepenhenrich (1171) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2017
Pours dark red-brown with a decent off-white, almost beige head. Fruity aroma. An elegant bitterness combines with roasted malts and slightly herbal notes. Flavorful, well-balanced flavors with a bitter touch. Very good!

Jabic (661) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Ar: Deep toasted malt, bready with a pronounced slightly burnt caramel edge; mossy hops, with hints of lemon and orange. Ap: Deep amber-red; clear, though depth of color makes it difficult to tell; small off-white head with low retention, leaving thin ring of foam and some splotches of bubbles. T: Toast, burnt caramel, and a hint of butterscotch; light sweetness; slightly tannic, black tea hop flavor, moss and lemon peel; deep bread and marmalade; finish is toast and light bitters. P: Medium-light body with medium-low carbonation; some diacetyl slickness; finish is medium-dry. O: Very good ESB; great depth of malt, characterfully British; notes of marmalade, burnt caramel, butterscotch, and moss are also spot on for the style.

Bottle. Dark red-brown colour. Very malty full-bodied beer (roast, toasted malts, buttery caramel). Fruity. Flowery spicy hops. Rather earthy (peaty?) bitter taste. Hints of smoke? Bitter roast malty finish. Very drinkable. (2008)

Borresteijn (7400) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2017
50cl Bottle, thanks Bob & Rosemary! Clear ruby amber colour, light-beige head. Aroma of crystal malt, toffee, resin, hops, rose petals, red fruits, quite some classic hops. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toffee, nuts, floral, light fruity, light resin, decent hoppy bitter finish. Light bodied. Nice.

Karamel, licht wurzig maar waterig in smaak. Best complex maar dun. Licht aroma - beetje hoppiger. Niks speciaal, wel doordrinkbaar. 500ml fles.

hershiser2 (3591) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2016
$5.49 500 ml bottle from Market Street Wine Shop, Downtown. Pours murky brown with an inch plus of creamy beige head. Aroma is strong floral hops, almost perfumey, as well as light citrus, caramel, and apple? Flavor is highly floral, with rose hips, black tea, orange, caramel, raisin, violet?, nuts. Quite nice.

Grzesiek79 (4380) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Bardzo dobre piwo. Pachnie bardzo chmielnie kwaitami i cytrusami. W smaku goryczkowe, nieco karmelu, ale glownie sporo dawki szlachetnej goryczki. Piwo ladnie wyglada piana spora i trwala, kolor klarowny czerwono herbaciany. Przyjemne i mocno wytrawne zwlaszcza na finiszu. Troche moze zbyt bylo przegazowane.
