Full malty aroma fitting the ESB-title.
Flavor has caramel malts, slight roasted feel and decent bitter backing.
Punaruskea olut kohtalaisella valkealla vaahdolla. Tuoksu ruohoisen/hedelmäisen humalainen, maku hedelmäinen, katkeroa hieman. Kuitenkin yllättävän vetinen/kevyt suutuntuma. larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
Huge beige head doesn’t last. Hazy deep amber body with small
particles. Fruity spicy aroma with mealy herbal notes. Dryish wooden
earthy taste with fruity herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy
mouthfeel. Dryish minty earthy dirty aftertaste with herbal notes.
It’s OK, but not really very impressive. (0.33l bottle, from Alko
Arkadia, Helsinki.) Unde (1064) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Hazy orange colour. Nice fluffy head on top which leaves some lacing. Aroma is sweet with some fruits. Malts are there too. Taste is quite bitter with grass, English biscuit malts also. Medium body and high carbonation. Punkero (447) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Cloudy and dark orange. Nice mild aroma. Thick and tinglish. Some fruits. A wee bit bitter. Almost exotic. Marstonlad (878) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours clear copper color with a big frothy head. The aroma displays plenty of pine and citrusy fruitiness, also some sweetish caramel maltiness appears, fairly rich actually. Taste is fairly much on the malty side initially: caramel, bread and nuts combine. Later hoppiness adds a bitter, fruity touch that lingers until the finish. The palate is smooth, medium bodied and moderate in carbonation. Nice hoppy anfd malty flavours in this ESB.

330ml bottle bought at Alko Joensuu Sokos. Airy white tophead to an amber coloured body, close to clear. Rings of lace down the glassware. Forest and grass on the nose. Flavoured with leafy hops with suggestions of caramel malts beneath. Resinous bitterness to the ending. Medium bodied. Decent version of the style (hotel room 17.08.2014). mtu71 (364) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2014
