4.1/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
500 mL can, chilled and poured into a pint glass
Appearance- Pours a clear dark amber colour with two fingers of fluffy off white head that takes a little while to reside down to bubbly head that never really goes away till finish, leaving minimal spots of lacing throughout the glass.
Smell- I’m getting lots of sweet fruity aromas coming from this one right away, also lots of caramel/toffee malt with a very mild hop presence in there as well, very bready with a touch of yeast.
Taste- Very similar to the smells although the bitter hops come through a lot more on the palate, nice sweet fruity flavours as well paired with the caramel/toffee bready malt; finishes a little bitter with a mild yeast touch in there as well.
Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied this one has minimal carbonation that somehow forms a lasting bubbly head right till the end, very smooth and crisp going down.
Overall- Pleasantly surprised again by this one, not as bitter as I thought it would be but it is well balanced, I actually liked this one although the smell was a little better than the taste overall it was still a very quality brew, again thanks Fuller’s you have shown me that you really do actually make very good beers.

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
