KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle. Poured a redish/brown with a small light tan creamy head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing.The aroma was of roasted caramel malts, a sweet leathery yeast, mild resin hops with notes of coffee. It tasted mildly sweet, smooth and malty at first and finished about the same except for a nice dose of coffee at the end with the flavor lingering a nice long time. Mouthfeel was medium in body and oily in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall a VERY tasty bitter.

Would have first had this years ago and just never realised I hadn’t ticked it. Full bodied, somewhat sweet malty bitter. Smooth palate. Nice, hearty ESB.

Tamno crvena boja izgleda impresivno. Ali arome su izostale. Iz čaše je dopirao miris kartonskih kutija. Tijelo baš kao i boja - jako moćno. Gorčina snažna. Akohol se previše osjetio. Kao da pijem onu podmornicu u koju smo znali ubaciti čašicu rakije ili nečeg obojenog u pivo. Još jedan dokaz da su Amerikanci 100% u pravu kada potenciraju svježinu kod piva sa jakim sadržajem hmelja. Ovo pivo do 3 mjeseca starosti sigurno bi dalo bogatije arome i drugačiji utisak.

Birra dal color rubino. Schiuma bianca con venature rosse, fine e persistenze. All’olfatto, cioccolato, caramello e malto tostato. Al palato mediamente corposa con note già riproposte all’olfatto. Nel finale rimane lievemente amara. Birra particolare ma niente di eclatante.

Dark redbrown amber beer pours very little white head. Aroma is malty and sour fruits. Taste is mild sweet, sour malt. Aftertaste slightly bitter. QUite low carbonation. Descent ESB.

En bouteille. Couleur ruby, limpide, fine mousse beige. Arôme de toast, caramel, un peu de fruits. Goût de bière anglaise assez caractéristique. Palais modéré, toast, biscuit, caramel, torréfaction. Légèrement fruité, datte, prune. C’est pas trop prononcé en alcool, ni trop lourd. Très agréable à boire, belle amertume résiduel. J’en boirais d’autres!
