harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Slight hazy amber. Thin beige head. Not a great ESB, some good fruit, but no body to back it up. I expected it to be darker to reflect the style. Some US hop on end. Bit of grapefruit. Still a bit murky as I’m not sure it was 100% ready to be served.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2007
Bottled. A clear, golden beer with some beige head. Hops, malt, more hops, beef-stock and some alcohol makes the aroma. The flavor is quite hoppy and piney, but is too short on malt to make it a balanced beer. It’s not bad though. It is full-bodied, and with a piney finish followed up by malt and stock. A nice beer, but a bit on the hoppy side, definately not the average English ESB. (070119)
