Day 2 of the BeerAdvent Calendar - 2014 Intercontinental edition. Pours clear straw colour with a quickly dissipating head that leaves no lace.

Nose is faint but mostly a slight malt.

Taste is very subtle. This reminds me more of a clean and crisp lager or Pilsner than an ESB. A dry finish.

I enjoyed this beer. Subtle but nice and refreshing.

Hippaheikki Extra Special Bitter from Teerenpeli - Pours a nice copper with a very thin head that melted away quickly. The nose has a malty orange aroma with a but of grass on the edges. The malt does come through in the mouth right away but then gives away to a hoppy bitterness that travels down the sides of the tongue and hangs around for awhile. Not bad...I could see drinking a couple of these

On tap at the brewpub in Helsinki. From notes.

A - Poured a gold/dark gold colour. Minimal carbonation and a cap of white head. Bright.

S - English, spicy, earthy hops with a bready, toasty character.

T - Like a pilsner? Saazy and toasty with a harsh finish. The BA I was there with said it tasted unusual and he goes there fairly often so I'll take his word for it. It honestly didn't taste like an ESB at all.

M - Strong carbonation and a dry finish. Light body.

O/D - Not my thing at all. Weak for the style to say the least. Work to finish it. Just didn't have anything I could get into or recognize as a welcoming English style ale. It was like a Malty pils.
