3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
What’s up with all those low ratings? This is not a pretentious beer. Good value for a English pale ale. Appareance, perfect for what it is. Aroma, almonds and nuts. Not oily though. And well, I know, not the best palate, not the best balance, but this is a good beer for what is. All of you rating it with low notes, is not a damn mikkeller!
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. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017

bottle @ Sergio’s / 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 (6307) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Fra flaske (bb. 290513) på RBHD-treff hos OG: lett uklar gylden med kort hvitt skum. Mynteaktig aroma med sjokoladesnev, her nevnes After Eight. Tørr bitterhet og tørr ttersmak, smakte egentlig gammelt og ufriskt. Må prøves i frisk utgave en gang, og gjerne before eight. gunnar (9456) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours almost clear dark golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is nice, inviting flowery hops. Taste is moderate sweet earthy and cellar malts. Weak dry finish. abemorsten (3652) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
