3.64/5 rDev -0.5%
Copper color with three fingers of fluffy head with short retention, but leaving laces.
Light aroma of English noble hops, caramel and malt sweetness.
Flavor of English hops, caramel malt, nuts and currants with hints of pepper and minerals. Bitter than what I expected which is welcome. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Very flavorful beer, balancing malt sweetness with a pleasant bitterness. Not overly complex, but it is assertive.

A: nice brown colour, very clear. Small head which lasts.

M: Quite dry, highly carbonated for an English ale.
O: Misses something in aroma and taste/mouthfeel could be fuller.

3.58/5 rDev -2.2%
Half litre bottle, poured into pint glass.
A: Brown, small off white head, clear.
S: The malt used for this really reminded me of the malt used in some beers from Bamberg, had a real malty sharpness. There were also notes of slightly sour fruits.
T: Burnt caramel which was balanced out by some bitterness, had hints of wheat and dark chocolate. Possibly some Fuggles hop.
M: Medium body, smooth, moderate carbonation.
O: Fairly wintery, not a bad ESB but not the best.

Found it in Romania.
A - Very beautiful amber to cherry red color. One finger foam lasting few minutes. Lots of bubbles staying couple of minutes.
S - To be honest,didn't feel nothing written on the bottle. Mostly fine pale aromas.
T/M - It is high bitter,and that is ok,but it is to much carbonated. Tick,caramel taste.
O - Above average,fine ale.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle bought in England.
A - Deep copper color, orange highlights. Brilliant clarity. Bone colored head piles 1 inch high and is fluffy, then fades to thick sheet with serious lacing.
S - Aroma is full of earthy English hops, but somehow they don't come across as fresh. Nothing else makes it through.
T - Taste is a mix of light bready malt and earthy hops. Not overly complex. The hops only provide light to moderate bitterness, yet somehow they seem a bit harsh. There is a metallic note that detracts at first, then disappears.
M - Medium body. Smooth, creamy carbonation. Low hops bitterness. No alcohol presence.
O - A forgettable beer. Other than appearance, I don't think anything about it stands out from the crowd.
