COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A "session" bitter, this beer is clean, fruity and effervescent. Fully one pound per barrel of East Kent Goldings hops lend a large floral effect to this ale. Quality that would make the Queen proud.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Burnt orange beer. Thick head when poured and then nothing but a trace of treacly goo. Nose is right on. Dry and yet fruity bitterness from the malts. Like dried fruits. sweet but retaining a sense of dry funkiness tat adds a complex delight. Primarily sweet though. Slight hop presence. Hops shine on the palate though. Malts flood the corners of the mouth at first and then an acrid bitterness overwhelms your mouth. Piney and dirty sticky aftertaste. Dried fruits linger. Palate is firm and weighty. Good beer

Not a bad bitter at all. Started out with the sweetness of Fullers and ended pleasantly. Not as addicting as Fuller’s but good nonetheless.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2010
On tap at the Draught House 42nd Anniversary Party. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the caramel and bready malt. The flavor is a mix of grassy and earthy hops with some bready and caramel/toffee malts. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

nstal (237) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Pretty decent bitter beer. Served in a tall 23oz glass, the beer started a lot better than it finished. Definitely drinkable, but not as good as some other ESB’s.

kidmartinek (3551) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2008
A dark amber beer, sightly opaque with a tiny head. Aroma is of bitter, roasted malt. Taste starts out maty with notes of toffee, coffee, and cocoa. Then a medium-heavy bitterness develops from the hops. Mouthfeel is rich and has a strong bite. I wouldn’t say it’s highly carbonated, just sharp. Finishes with a medium roasted malt flavor and a hint raspberry and chocolate.
