From a stubby nose 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, pale malt, straw hops, orange zest. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of pale malt, grains, minerals, caramel, slight molassas, cinnamon, tropical fruit rind. Overall sweet and malty with some interesting complexity.

This ESB poured a nice amber colour with a huge off white, creamy head. Scents include cereal, honey and a little caramel. First swig was not bad with flavours of cereal, light hops, honey and mild caramel. Finish was a little bitter with hoppy caramel flavours lingering...

Poured a mid-orangey-amber with a one-finger creamy frothy head that diminished slowly to a cap that laced OK. Carbonation high, average and with medium sized bubbles. Aroma of caramel, malt and hints of sweet citrus/orange. Taste of caramel malt, quite sweet with low bitterness. Light body. Smooth and soft with a short sweet finish.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine & More, Louisville; bottle dated Jul 07 16. Aroma: Pleasant lemon peel and botanical hop aroma with a lightly toasted malt presence. Appearance: Transparent, light copper color with a stream of bubbles holding up a foamy bone head that settles into a sticky, patchy skin. Flavor: Moderate toast and caramel malt initially with more of a spicy, lightly fruity hop presence towards the finish, which is mildly bitter and semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: This is not going to fool anyone familiar with the likes of Fuller’s ESB. Still, it’s interesting enough to serve as a fall cookout/hangout beer in a pinch.

14-OCT-2016, bottle @Ulkløbben meeting, @Michael.
Almost clear with a low White head.
Very sweet ale’ish with caramel mostly. Faint bitterness. Not for me. kidobutai (690) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Poured from a bottle, short-lived head and little lacing, but very effervescent and an attractive semi-opaque amber color. It may be an extra-special bitter, but it’s not extra-bitter...almost a sweet aroma, tart taste with some pine. euniceradio (538) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2016
