Poured into pint.
Pours clear golden with off-white head. Good retention.
Smell - lemony, elderberry, floral.
Taste - malty with lemon zest, elderberry tones and thin hop finish.
Light body and soft carbonation. Decent.

Smooth taste having a slightly hoppy bite with a flowery aroma. May be hazy soon after pouring though my bottle was a clear blond color.

500 ml bottle with a BB date stamp of July 2016.

Pours with a bright, clear body topped by a good head that leaves fine lacing.

Aroma: Floral and herbal, but dominated by earthy English hops and lemon zest. .

Flavor: like the aroma, but with a nice, bready malt base.

O: this ESB is much like a pale ale.

Bright brass with stiff, steady white carpet. 4
Fresh white pan crust with stewed peaches on the nose - mouth-watering. 4
Sold honey and Digestives up front, some orchard fruit, then floral, nectar, spicy hops. 4
Peanuty end and long, numbing sandalwood linger.
Halfway to medium, oily, smooth. 4

-- Malts stay light and cookie-light and there’s dimension to the Brit hops. Elderflower is seamless. A bit thin and summery, and I don’t get the zest, but a quality best bitter. 4
