This is a strong traditional ale with intense malt flavours and a citrus hop aroma. A very smooth beer with a well-rounded, distinctly "moreish" finish.

shoestring (360) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Served too cold initially. Nice looker copper and off white head. Caramel starting to come through as warming. Slight citrus edge with a slight metallic twang. May just be too cold just now . Flavours ’warmed’ as the beer itself ce to room temp

overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2016
500ml bottle, pours a very clear copper with off white cap. Nose is pretty weird, very fruit forward, almost peach like with underlying malt aromas. Taste is really fresh, fruity notes give way to caramel maltiness which finishes ashy and slightly bitter.low carbonation with light to medium body. Pretty tasty stuff.

Towey1989 (1895) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale amber colour with a foamy off white head. Aroma is fruity of red berries, strawberry jam, biscuit, some honey, very subtle pine and slight herbal hops. Taste of strawberry jam, red berries, a little cranberry, some honey, caramel and slight herbal hops. Light bodied and a slightly oily texture. A sweetish, fruity, strawberry finish. This is quite sweet for a ESB, very fruity with only a subtle bitterness. Good but lacks balance.
