Cask@GBBF2009 (as Colonel Blides ESB). Amber colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, some fruits and a bit yeastylike earthy notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Balanced, but quite boring ESB.

I can’t seem to find this beer anywhere else, so here it goes. This is a "cask ale". Amber in color, moderate carbonation. Malty, with a sight tinge of hops. Tasty. Seems quite strong, although I can’t find any infomation on their website about it. Will upload a photo. Has anyone else seen this beer? Was bought in Rochester, NY.

Cask@GBBF 2009. "As Colonel Blides ESB" Clear amber color, not much head. A bit glueish hoppy (grapefruit, mango) aroma. American hoppy flavor, some caramel and fruity notes. Light hoppy finish. Very American ESB.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2009
Cask (gravity) at GBBF 2009, Day 2 @ 5.5%. Sold as Captain Blides ESB. Hazy amber - same colour as the Beer Works Boston Common sampled at the same time. Quite leafy hops, in reassonably generous measure. Fairly prominent bitterness. Pleasant and easy-drinking.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice medium bright orange copper with a med head. Aroma is fruity esters, slight orange, mango almost, sweet light caramel and toffee with nuts. and light fruity and earthy hops. Flavor is toffee, caramel malts, light grassy and tea-like hops and moderately fruity- relatively smooth and easy drinking. Not bad.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a slight hazy light amber with a good sticky rocky head. Aroma is slightly fruity malty but tended to be more towards the floral hop side. Good smooth mouthfeel, with low carbonation. Nice malty flavor, slightly sweet, with a good bitterness to round it out. Very nice.

Cask, GBBF 09. Hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aromas are caramel malts with citrus. Soft but god hopping. Flavours are sweet toffee malts with light citrus. Some toasty notes with floral hops on the finish. Decent.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2009
Cask at GBBF 09, 5.5% ABV, believe it may well be the alt. Anyways, ruddy brown with almost no head. Moderate citrussy and piney hops, quite bitter flavours. Dry finish. Flat. Refreshing.
