Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Status uncertain.
A powerful, rich and fruity beer. Flavours of candied orange peel dominate this full-bodied, decadent brew.

Cask at Bath hotel, sheffield. Deep golden ale with small white head. Aroma is fruity with rhubarb and custard sweets coming though. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. You can taste the alcohol, even if it doesn’t burn. No carbonation and medium body. Weird one, sort of like a suped up golden ale. Get you pissed quick though.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - lemon and orange with malty backdrop. Taste - more tangy orange melded with biscuity malt. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - yes a decent ESB or English Strong Ale.

500ml bottle at the ’Are We Nearly There Yet? Yorkshire beer tasting with AshtonMcCobb. Murky gold bitty pour, thin white head. Aromas of almonds/marzipan/nail varnish remover. Taste is better, ESB nuttiness and biscuit. Boozy lemon finish. OK.

Bammers54 (76) - Camberely, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
from bottle, quite a powerful beer, loads of alcohol but nicely balanced with malt and hops, quite a bit going on in the background, making this an interesting and pretty easy drinking strong beer

Clear gold beer, big cream coloured head. Palate is dry and minerally crisp. Thin malt cream and a whisper of brandyish alcohol. Little orange peep. Dry finish brings a whisper of spice. Not bad apart from being a bit over dry.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Cloudy orange amber, good white head. Initially its full of orange, fruits and sweetness. There is noticeable alcohol but it the goes quite dank and almost like when a beer has sat for a few hours. It may be a one off as ive read good things.
