Cask - Dark chestnut brown with hues of red and a fine, creamy off-white head. Nutty, malty and roasty aromas with light hints of red fruits. Rich, sweet and chocolatey flavours. Good mouthfeel, predominantly malty ESB with a dry, peppery finish, low carbonation and nice palate texture. No complaints with this one.

Tasting glass @ brewery tasting room. Looks darker than your average bitter. And there is also much more flavours than in your usual bitter. I really don’t know where the taste comes from, some micro-organisms in the process? It is not hops or just malts there something else from the yeast.

Cask at Fullers, Heathrow Airport. Clear dark chestnut-mahogany color with a sticky one finger cream-colored head. Aroma is black tea, fall leaves, and English toffee. Medium sweet flavor, caramel and toffee, with a mildly bitter leafy and herbal finish. Medium body and a very smooth feel. Quite legit.

One of my favourite beers of all time. I literally go out of my way for this fantastic, full bodied, reasonably strong, caramel dark and very quaffable, behemoth of an ale.

On cask @ Fuller’s pub at Heathrow Terminal 2. Smooth malty beginning. Soft and round with nice roast and smooth bitterness. Great Ale-characteristics, smooth but not too dry body. The aftertaste is smooth, malty and long. Very nice and round. Hints of nuts and caramel in the end. Nice!

Håndpumpet pint på Tufnell Park Tavern, med Julian og Kitty: ah, dette er hva engelske bryggere eksellerer i: relativt alkholsvake men meget smaksrIke og komplekse øl. Nydelig fruktighet kombinert med avrundet ettersmak, ved perfekt serveringstemperatur gjør den eminent drikkbar. Det tette skummet fulgte med til bunns.
