Silvan7 (1279) - Samarate, - JUN 10, 2013
bottle @ home. Profumo di cearali tostati, e di caffè. Schiuma color caffelatte e birra dal colore rosso pieno, quasi violaceo. La caronatazione è medio bassa, il gusto è amaricato in stile Bitter inglese, molto caratteristico, e tornano sentori di caffè e cioccolato. la descivono come fruttato, ma io non ho avvertito granchè quesi sentori. é decisamente più bitter che altro. corpo quasi pieno, discretamente pastoso

Hælder mørk ruby, hvidt hoved og boblende klar væske Aroma af toffee, og en liflig bæraroma God balance, sødmen og friskheden gør op med den klassiske Esb bitter medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, fresh finish God alternativ Esb,

An average beer, not amazed by it at all. But drinkable, nice. Pale, chocolate aroma, light body, light foam....

While enjoying discovering beers from this brewery, this one described as ruby red ale, where I would hope for an amber or scotch ale, ESB is not my cup of tea.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Une superbe bière brune qui dévoile des saveurs de malt torréfié, de café et de houblon. J'ai adoré.

0.5 l bottle shared. Apperance: A mahogany body, with a small thin offwhite head. Aroma: dark fruits, Malts, burned malts and sugars. Taste: Starts fruity sweet, some biscuit malts, some caramle malts, and some burned sugards in the short bitter finish. soft carbonation and a light body. OKay.

midovark (1131) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2017
0.5 l bottle. Pours mahogany with thin, persistent head. Nose is fruity-flowery with decent malty backbone. Same applies to the taste: fruits come upfront, followed by biscuit-like malts. Decent, and well rounded. Short bittersweet finish, soft carbo, light body. Proper bitter.

Hanoi (980) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Nose is very fruity, slight yeast. Taste is fruity, yeast, spice. Stale, acidic, sickly taste which seems to be in all wychwood brews is overpowering. Mouthfeel is sticky.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Dåse. Rødlig med næsten ingen duft, men hæderligt skum. Smagen klassisk ESB med malten som det dominerende.

gorthaurz (132) - CROATIA - NOV 30, 2017
Pours dark ruby-brown with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of roast malts, berries, very fruity. Aroma is fantastic, unfortunately, the taste was a bit dissapointing. Taste of roast malts, caramel, nuts, some dark fruits, light roast malt bitterness. A bit watery. Light bitter aftertaste

It’s got some mild malt and chocolate flavor. Not offensive but not the strong flavor you want in a dark ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
