Cask handpump at Fullerís Mad Bishop & Bear pub at Paddington Station, London. Deep brown colour, very rich. Spiced, toffee aroma. Quite thick, if just a little oily. Full bodied. Very nice pint. Worth the train being delayed!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear amber with a thin head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is spicy and has some hops and a hint of berrylike sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth obviously, full and has a hint of carbonation. Taste is malty and consistent with aroma, though the sweetness is more like raisins. Malty and bitter aftertaste. Nice!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The first ESB is still broadly the best. Fullers makes an amazing ESB in both the cask and bottled categories.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pull at the Red Lion, Uxbridge. Who knows how many times Iíve had this beer? A lot. Itís about as solid a version of the style as they come, with Fullers so reliable in this regard. Nice amber pour with a healthy froth. Soft malts and light fruit in the nose, along with the promise of fragrant, spicy hops. Well balanced in the flavor as you might think, with a bit more fruit and biscuit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy and brown beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with grass. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with notes of bitterness. Overall an average beer.
