Got this one part of the 4-pack Christmas special at LCBO. Not sure if it is the type of beer (ESB) or this beer itself, but disappointing. No aroma, no taste (mainly nothing special to it).

Bottle. Dark ruby beer. Pours with a thick head. Fresh hop aroma. Taste of malt , mild hops. Sweetish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unexpectedly brilliant dark Red beer. Flavourful, please type malt and much more hoppy than expected. Dark reddish brown, nice head, lovely aroma.

Cerveza muy correcta, densa en cuerpo, sin muchos matices ni un sabor prominente.

Bottle. Pours amber with small off white head. Pleasant biscuit and hop aromas. Strong flavours of malt and hops. Good bitter finish. Very drinkable.

cervmagpt (933) - PORTUGAL - SEP 7, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 11A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch A6307 (BBF 03.DEC.17). AROMA: low malt aroma with toasty and biscuity notes. light diacetyl background and slight herbaceous (almost dried grass) hop presence. APPEARANCE: amber color and clear. medium beige head with good retention. TASTE: medium-low malt flavor with toasty flavor. low hop flavor with a resiny character. faint fruitiness (dried grapes). faint diacetyl background. medium bitterness with a dry and slightly bitter finish. PALATE: medium-low body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an OK ordinary-type bitter.

tanobicho (23) - Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2017
500ml. bottle. Clear copper, head with good retention and lacing. Smells like caramel, honey, malts. Sweet beginning, then caramel, bread and licorice. A bit sour aftertaste.

darioklc (845) - Karlovac, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2017
4.7% alk. Kad se usporedi sa onim Lidlovim bitterima, ova je vrhunska. Lijep miris, ugodna gorčina i dobar okus. Jedna jednostavna ali lijepo izbalasnirana i pitka piva.

Ottimo colore ma il gusto non mi appaga. Buona per carità ma troppo amara è il finale troppo deciso. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
