Tap at GABF 2013. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a smooth malt liqourice cream palate. This is a super ESB. Really pretty damn good!

There’s a palace a fallin’, there’s a smoke in the sky. There’s a boy running downhill to the lowlands tonight; and he’s catching the train to where he’s heard you have been. He’s a fool now among us, a dreamer within...
