3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity cask from St Peter’s Ale House, Bedford. Brown with a hint of mahogany, only a bit translucent. Caramel malt and saltwater taffy aroma. Nice sweet malty taste with overtones of Lotus biscuit spread and whisky. Well-blanced English buttering hops elongate the satisfying finish. Slick and full body. Not normally crazy about these types of beers but this is really nice.

Dark brown-copper color, small beige head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel and spicey hops. Medium-bodied. Malty, a bit harsh spicey hoppyness, even "ashy". Lingering bitterness. Underlying sweetness. Kind of unbalanced for ESB.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and light toffee with faint roasted malt, light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light toffee with light notes of wood, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light notes of wood, light - some grassy hoppyness. OK bitterness but too much caramel for me.
