jamesie1857 (1992) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
330ml bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield - Hazy red amber colour, creamy off-white head. Rich fruity nose, lots of citrus and berries. Sweetish malty caramel flavour with toffee, light roast, fruity citrus and woody spicy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy peppery bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

laiti (8583) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2015
33 cl bottle @ Sivukirjasto, BBE 31.10.2015. Rated on 06.03.2015.
Aroma has resin, bready malt and caramel. Feels mellow. Flavour has fruity hops, resin some toffee, fruit candy and woody dryness. Feels juicy. Somewhat odd finish with gluey tones. An English strong? More like Amber ale.

McNeillR (2344) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Firm amber, soft eggshell head. Clean but worn nappies, light nutty nose. Ice creamy sweetness throughout, softly brassy. Nice lime bite licks in. Middling carbonation and fairly clean and loose. Finishes simple brassy bitter with a bit more redcurrant sweetness on the linger. Actually shields the ABV fairly well and keeps things simple.

Bottle at Craig’s house. Appearance - deep amber with a decent head. Nose - light toffee and citrus. Taste - yet well melded toffee and citrus. Palate - good balance. Overall - it’s an ESB.
