A rich golden coloured smooth premium ale. Brewed with a full malt mash, this beer has a robust malty palate and well-balanced steely bitterness producing a massive complexity of flavours. A former Champion Premium Beer of Britain.

Light straw colour with a white head. Slight grassy aroma but not much. Taste is too sweet for me with an acidic finish.

Towey1989 (313) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet grain, bread, some melon and lemon plus grassy hops. Taste of grain, bread, barley, light citrus notes of lemon and earthy hops, light bitterness. Light bodied and flat carbonation. A light vegetable and earthy bitterness in the finish. Don’t like this, has like a flat lager kind of taste.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Excellent beer. Can see why it was a Champion. Vanilla aroma pale golden appearance. Subtle in taste as bitterness starts low and builds. Lovely citrus flavours. Seems mild on palate but as you down the pint it gets better. Very moreish. Lovely beer and will definitely drink again. Surprisingly score went down on second pint for aroma and overall. Still very good though.

tombyars (1448) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2011
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in July 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong intense aroma of vanilla ice cream. Smooth creamy mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt component leads you to think a citrus whack is on the cards but a juicy medlay of tropical fruit appears instead. Lychees, mango, honeydew melon, white peach and soft brown sugar assault the taste buds. Floral hop resins give a short bitter aftertaste but fruity malt continue into the finish with dry pommegranate notes. This is an excellent ESB and highly recommended.

Cask (Cross Keys JDW, London)
Lactic, acidic, and spooned pale ale. Worst of all - it had just come on (wasn’t on when we arrived, had it on our way out). Staff weren’t even anywhere near the bar so that I could tell them they’re selling crap. Should rerate. Should insult the pub.

anders37 (18693) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2011
Cask @ Sir John Oldcastle, JDW, Farringdon EC1. Pours a hazy and very pale yellow color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty weak hoppy aroma. Fruity malty caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty weak hoppy caramel finish.
