Had this at the Ring O’ Bells in Hinton Blewitt. I remember this beer quite fondly as a very nice example of a lovely ESB. Of course my judgment is quite pleasantly clouded by memories of a lovely barmaid and a charming country pub. Serving: Cask

cask - Pours oglden with a small, lingering head. It’s a nicely balanced brew with mild bitterness, bready malt, and a dry finish. Tasty!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpull, The Garrick’s Head, Bath. Bronze under a white swirl. Generous hop citrus, breakfast juice and dung aroma; some choc and orange oil once we went outside. Orange and grapefruit, a little husky malt and biscuit. Thick with balance and condition. Good. (blind rate later in the evening at The Raven)...Dusty yellow with a foamy white lid. Jam and wood aroma with gooseberry; lime and dung breaking through. Brittle with nut husk bitterness, herbal citrus, maybe celery, biscuit. MOR. Octo made me drink a pint and a half of it.

Cask (Guide Dog, Southampton) - Amber in colour. Sulphuric aroma with malt and fruit. Fruity and slightly bitter taste with caramel and spicy malt. I remember it being better than this. I’ll try to rate it again in future.

Bottle. Golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is well hopped and yeasty, and the flavour is slightly grassy, very well hopped, bitter and roasted. Overall a disappointingly flavoured beer.
