Aroma is caramel, malt, toffee, sweet, pudding, slight metallic, slight bitterness. Appearance is amber, off white head, somewhat hazy. Taste is caramel, metallic, malt, toffee, earthy hops, ab unbalanced mess. Mouthfeel is light body, light, bubbly but not crisp or spritzy, carbonation, with a strange metallic caramel aftertaste. Overall, this one is quite a mess.

rondphoto (4370) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 10, 2015
bottle @ Sergios / Louisville KY --- Clear medium amber color, frothy ivory head, splashes of lace. Aroma of malt and floral hops. Taste is crisp malt that adds carbonation on the swallow, then is joined by floral hops in a long finish. Both malt and hops are done with discretion, while continuing to have enough flavor to satisfy. A solid mild English ESB.

Holmen1 (5665) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Fra flaske (bb. 290513) p RBHD-treff hos OG: lett uklar gylden med kort hvitt skum. Mynteaktig aroma med sjokoladesnev, her nevnes After Eight. Trr bitterhet og trr ttersmak, smakte egentlig gammelt og ufriskt. M prves i frisk utgave en gang, og gjerne before eight.
