i am bummed. this comes from after a brief stint in London this fall and drinking this stuff like water. its pretty clear its just not the same over here.
ah well it started out promising. nice deep amber color slight off white head on top. just how i remembered it.
but the aroma is just not there. there usualy is a nice english hop aroma that i would describe as an english golf course. :-) really don't know the correct word here but that's how it sounds
it tastes good but not great, and that's the problem here. normally i could drink it all day long as it has the perfect blend of all the appropriate flavors. this time around everything was muted.
well i will still rock this out hardcore when back in the pubs but over here i will probably look elsewhere

Best Before 24 MAY 14
A: Pours a golden amber color with slightly less than a fingers worth of head that quickly fizzles down to a tiny patch of bubbles in the center of the pint
S: Nice and malty, with quite a bit of sweetness and molasses brown bread coming through. Some earthiness as well, along with a light fruitiness that rounds out the sweetness
T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the brown bread and molasses notes from the hefty malt bill and then goes into a nice sweetness that is accompanied by the earthy and fruity notes. Finishes with a lingering sweetness with a light bitterness
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation
O: One of the standards for the style. Very easy to drink for being a point under 6% and really keeps you wanting more despite the quite simplistic flavor profile. Probably a good intro to ESBs if you're looking for one
