Poured into english pint.
Pours clear copper beer with nice beige rocky head, excellent retention. Aroma - not intense, toffee, caramel, nutty. Taste - toasted malts, marmalade, nice hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body & carbonation.
Pros - adequately balanced, unexpectedly bitter.
Contras - weak smell, consider ABV is a bit low. Having a heavy dissonance whether it is an ESB, english strong ale or an old ale.

Served gold from 500ml brown bottle into straight pint glass.

A) Dark brown, half an inch of off-white head, dissipates quickly, but thin head remains.

S) Served cold, but getting liquorice-type dark malts. Inviting. When it warms up a bit, fruitier tones are evident.

T) Malty, slightly bitter, fruity aftertaste. This is a tasty beer, very well balanced; I am well happy.

M) Moderately carbonated; the body is fairly thick and coats the tongue. Yummers.

O) Tasty and 5.1%, defiantly above whatever tax thresholds apply these days without compromising. Recommended.

Acorn brown with a off white / cream white head.

Sour floral nose with a lot of fermented malt.

Taste is sour, nutty and malty before the bitterness is coming through - a big broad bitterness.

Then nutty licorice is joining the party - still carried by hoppy bitterness.

Overall - not a good beer - a great one. Not so much good for drinking on its own, but to accompany food.
