On cask at the Derby Beer Festival
This is pretty much nothing more than a new county tick. Otherwise a passable and run of the mill ESB, there are many better options if you are looking for something to session. I won’t be rushing to find any more Everards.

Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent coppery body does not build any anticipation of a great experience. Old hardwood floors which have been used for decades smother the aroma of semisweet baking chocolate and musty books. This smells old like an antique shop but more timid.

Flavor / Palate - Hardwood floors, plain biscuits, and a vague oaky texture tease the senses. Unfortunately it creates nothing but a stale impression of an interesting beer. This is not the most flawed example. Even so it is not worth a second chance.

larsga (5965) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2013
Small white head. Clear amber body. Earthy vinous aroma with spicy grainy notes. Dry fruity earthy spicy taste with floral grainy notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish earthy spicy fruity aftertaste with honey and vaguely funky notes. Interesting and unusual, but not that good. (0.568l cask at John Scott’s Pub, Göteborg.)

mzaar (1366) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2013
Fat @ John Scott´s Pub, Göteborg. Bronsfärgad med ytterst litet vitt skum. I både doft och smak hittas smörkola, röda bär och en fruktighet. Trevlig beska i smaken, lätt gräddig munkänsla.
