500ml bottle. An easy drinking solid ESB, there is nothing bad about it but nothing to make it stand out from the crowd. It pours light amber with a very thin head. The taste is bitter, slightly sweet at the back end and refreshing to drink. I think it would go well with a bbq food on a hot day.

ManVsBeer (8697) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle from Co-op, Minehead. Golden with a head. Lightly sweetened bitter and well balanced with its hops and malts.

Dandm (70) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2016
Just had a Neame Spitfire before this. This is closer to a lager, less sweet. Grassy and bready. Only faint late sweetness. It’s easy to drink but I would probably take a decent lager over this, and there are certainly better ESBs.

Graham77 (425) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2016
440ml can from Asda. Very drinkable ale with good malt/hop balance. Golden colour, minimal head but fairly lively fizz. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Taste is medium sweet and light/medium bitter, slight peppery spice. Finish is dry and faintly metallic. A good ale.

Hoponmate (109) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 12, 2016
Malty well balenced bitter beer. Brilliantly drinkable. Caramel notes and a golden color. Best of British but nothing special.

MayumiH (938) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear golden with a white head. Mildly bitter, slightly spicy but not much in depth of flavour. Light body.

uckelman (635) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours clear, moderate amount of white head reducing to lacing. Aroma is earthy, mildly skunky. Must have Fuggles in it. Very bitter. Finish is abrupt, with a lingering toasty aftertaste.

beeebon (403) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
From can pours golden pale with small fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly spicy, grassy hop and caramel. Taste is mildly bitter and sweet. Easy drinking, not quite as spicey as I remember, decent but nothing special

JorgeLee (1763) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Always surprises how pale Tanglefoot is, quite amber gold and bright in colour. Another overcarbonated pasteurised bottle, almost fizzy like Coke, lots of bubbles then flattens out. There is some fruitiness and an earthy hop twang but also a vaguely sulphury aroma and all tastes a bit muddled and bland. I think this is yet another one where the cask is better than a rather bland and fizzy bottle.

hohops (798) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
Appearance- clear golden with an amber tinge. A small white fizzy head. Aroma- sweet malt, honey tinges, grassy hop hints. Taste- bitter hops, caramel malt, clingy bitter finish. Ok, slightly industrial.
