Cask at The Craft Beer Co. Deep refractive ruby-amber, large frothy beige head. Classic ESB aroma - floral, sweet, mild alcohol but somewhat more herbal than standard. Taste follows, floral/sweet but nicely balanced. Light, slick mouthfeel, finishes sweet and quickly. Dare I say .... quaffable?

Cask-conditioned at the Wheatsheaf, Southwark 27/01/10. Reddish-brown with a slight, off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavour was much the same with a moderately bitter finish. Ok.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Sweet malts with a tinge of metallic bitterness to begin with. Some almost undetectable whiffs of fruit. A dry finish which left me a little unsatisfied. Rough yet respectable.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2007
Cask handpull at Victoria, Earl Soham. Chestnut, lasting beige head. Excellent condition. Strong hop and rich brown sugar malt aroma. Smooth in mouth, and then a big burst of hop on the finish. Really peppery. Decent best bitter, with a very heavy hop finish for an English beer. Malts are toffeeish.
