3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500ml. A dark amber beer with a foamy white head that fades away quickly. Aroma is of spices, chestnuts, malt and alcohol. Taste is bitter with a strong alcoholic finish. Rich and dense with a roasted character. It has some carbonation and strong astringency. Aftertaste is very bitter and somewhat alcoholic. Not very drinkable, yet a great beer.

Pours a lovely light copper colour with a lasting white head. Fruity aroma but not overpowering. fairly sweet taste, nice body, not too carbonated. Has a slight bitterness in the finish that leaves you wanting more.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours amber in color with an off white head. As the head disappears, there is lacing. It has the aroma of cherries, toffy, caramel, and orange flavors. It has a surprising hit of cherry flavor, mix with toffee and caramel malts with an orange peel bite. It is mellow, but there is a bitter finish on the palate as well.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper amber with one finger of light tan head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate chunky lacing. Nose is toffee/caramel malt, slight nuttiness, faint yeast and fruity hops. Taste follows suit with sweet caramel and biscuity malts leading the way for mild pepper and an almost delicate bitter finish. Medium to full body and moderate sustained carbonation, with a creamy mouth feel and dry finish.
I generally find English Bitters to be a touch boring, and this is no exception. That being said, itís pleasant, well-behaved, and highly sessionable. This is very much a beer for a few pints in a dim and smoky pub.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the beer I compare all other ESBs too. Iíve had it before, but never rated it. Color- chestnut with thin head. Malts are bready, caramel, and toffee. Hops are more there as bittering than anything else, not really citrus character they mention in description. However, there is a lot of cherry in the nose and flavor.

Hazy deep amber color, thin tan head. Medium body, lively carbonation. Aroma of caramel, hops, grass, malt. Balanced sweet and bitter taste. Texture is creamy and finish slightly dry. Very interesting.
