This was the best ESB Ive ever had it is bitter but not overly and is perfectly balanced with delicious English Malts.

From tap at Canal Street. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity and slight grassy. Light citrusy hops flavour, bitter and rather dry yet with a nice fruity impression. Ends bitter and crisp hoppy.

copper hue with a thick creamy white head, the aroma is grapefruit and the flavor is slightly caramel. more like bitter than an extra special bitter.

Cask at GBBF 2009, 7th August 09. Murky brown. Spicy nose and flavour. Pepper, nutmeg. Yeasty body. This was in pretty dire condition and I’ll re-rate it if I see it again.

DJMonarch (9160) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2009
Cask Stillage at the GBBF, Earl’s Court 07/08/2009 Fruity hop aroma. Mid brown coloured hazy in appearance and fruity with a crisp bitter and slightly dry malt finish. Following Brewdog Tokyo was always going to be a tough act for any beer but this was a nice one to round off 4 excellent days of drinking at the 2009 GBBF.
