4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Henrys, Portland. Very red/amber, with lasting beige head. Bright fruity aroma. Red fruits. Goodish malt in mouth. Really reminiscent of ESBs I have known, malty in mouth with some coffee. Nice finish, fruit and more malt. Good ESB, bit like Fullers ESB, but much more pronounced flavours.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Upright, pours a hazy copper with a small beige head. Aroma and flavour of English malts, bready notes and some mild rustic quality. Quite restrained, with a short duration. Not a whole lot to this. Decent stuff though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel, toffee notes on aroma. Hazy copper pour with no head. Bready flavor with hop bitterness on finish, but with no real hop flavor. Low carbonation and thin mouthfeel. An average bitter though no one outstanding characteristic.

Tap @ Brewery: Pours an amber color with light head. Creamy and malty with a little sweetness and underattenuated mouthfeel. Light floral hops in the tail and a little unbalanced. More fuggles.

Had with tapas at Torro Bravo in Portland. Mostly malt. Solid but not spectacular. Would be a good pairing with a zesty burger with fixins.
