Cask handpull at Wenlock Arms. Chestnut with lasting beige head. Malty premium beer. Earthy hop aroma. Really good ESB, plenty of dark/’red fruits. Good malts, nice biting hop on end. Excellent.

Bottled (thanks magic_dave6!). Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel malts, slight alcohol and very much hops. Flavour is grassy hops along with some caramelly hints. The flavour was a bit disappointing compared to the aroma.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation, thanks to Sebastian for sharing!
Clear, orange body with a high viscosity. Very attempting. Aroma of sweet malts, strong american hops, vanilla: very complex and well balanced. Hoppy flavour but in a one dimensional way, with some sweety caramelish hints. The aroma was very nice, but it was therefore a big disappointment in the flavour which is not as complex.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 Aroma and taste are caramel, toffee, though balancd, grassy finish, kind of like finding your not as drunkas you thingk you are. RERATE: Got this on cask in my work Blackfriers. Aroma has everything i want, toffee malt base balanced almost over powered with peppery, fruity hops. Taste is such a pleasure, amazing i should rate this higher, i f’in love beers like this, earthy peppery even citrus until the malt balances it quickly. I coul drink a stupid amount of this stuff wake the next day and feel terrible but not about what i got wrecked on.
