Around The World In 80 Beers episode 172: 4 Pines ESB

An English Bitter, from Manly in Sydney.

4 Pines ESB

Pours a very dark amber, The head is small and very little carbonation is visible.

First sip: Strong malts, followed by caramel and toffee. Mild but very long lasting hops bitterness that lingers long after the swallow. Mild carbonation tingle on the tongue.

This is a yummy beer. Malty, not sweet, not too gassy, very drinkable. It's yummy. It is warming in the belly and has a nice beer burp. Have I mentioned that this is a yummy beer? It's another one I would happily drink all day, because it's a yummy beer. It's been years since I've been to Manly. I think I need to go on a Harbour cruise on my next trip to Sydney, to raid the store of yummy beer in Manly. Because it's very, very yummy.
