I was pleasantly surprised at this Trafalgar offering. Pours a dark hue of gold with light head that laces the glass well. A good hoppy aroma and instant bitterness with good malt character.

Id be willingto bet this is a re-label of their elora ESB. Anyways.....this is a barebones bitter. Light goldings, light pale malts, some touch of caramel, and wet paper. Meh.

I liked this one alot, it was a surprise, very cool label, the beer pours a medium redness and it is quite drinkable, mild bitterness comes off the finish and overall decent, I will look for this again next st pattys

Tasty easy drinking beer, goes down smooth, a little bitter a the back not overpowering. Love the bottle

If Trafalgar is good at anything, it’s making Irish brews. Both the Elora Irish and Paddy’s are pretty good and this Irish ESB is even better. Dark-amber appearance and healthy aromas of malt, cherry and watermelon. Excellent gritty texture. Rich flavours of chocolate malt and butterscotch are balanced by accents of chalk and wood. Long bitter finish is pleasantly thirst-quenching and palate-cleansing.

Brown-red colour. Clear. Almost fruity scent. Very little head. Easy to pour. Overpowering bitterness. Lingering finish.

Spab (3663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2011
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a nearly clear brownish dark orange with only the faintest rumour of a head. Aroma is fairly mild with some caramel malt vaguely detectable. Taste is dominated by a harsh chemically/acidic note that overpowers the beer, some caramel malt and maybe a little herbal bitterness. Slightly bitter, fairly rank finish. Almost flat, lifeless mouthfeel. One to miss.

Eructoblaster (4100) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle - 650ml. Nice limpid amber body with average carbonation and a thin white foamy/creamy head. Aroma is diminated by maltiness and carries hoppy and caramel hints. Sharp hoppy taste with piney notes. Ends with a long bitter/woody finish. In spite of its lack of complexity, this is a decent ESB.

passable bitter beer. First picking up the malts and then the hops and bitterness in the finish. Yellow coloured body. The carbonation and the bitterness are right there. Surprisingly high bitterness, don’t know the hop but its drinkable. Very dry aftertaste.Peeno’s bottle.
