L- Mid-chestnut, clear, pours with 3mm fine white head.
S- Quite a malty smell to this one.
T- Malty, mildly roasted flavour, into moderate hoppy and refreshing/dry finish.
F- It's got a good balance between rich vs dry/hops, it's very sessionable, but it doesn't come over to me as being quite 5.2%. There now lacing down the glass and carbonation in the mouth remains good.
O- There's nothing wrong or out of balance I note here (this is a positive conclusion!), it's a decent ESB. That said given it's foundation of 5.2% to work off I was hoping for something a little bit more characterful.
500ml bottle, bought from BeersOfEurope. BB: 29/03/20
