12 oz. bottle from Rob G. Aroma: Light caramel biscuit malts that are also lightly toasty; hops are hard to discern. Appearance: Cola amber color with fairly healthy carbonation holding up a bubbly, bone coloured head. Flavour: Lean caramel tea biscuit up front with a very light woody/slightly spicy hop character near the finish, which is abrupt. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: The malts are mostly right, but the hops are too dialed back even from an English ESB. Fine, but a little dull.

Leighton (16261) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Draft at the brewery during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear gold with a white foam crown. Great balance, with pleasant sweet, bready malts, nuts, mellow leafy hop bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, with notes of lightly toasted bread, faint earth. Good one. Very, very drinkable.

klaing (192) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Nut brown, clear, thin head and mild carbonation. As advertised, caramel, biscuity, mild floral, English hops. Don't drink cold to get the best out of it. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcr (2458) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle. Brown body with a frothy, off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, dusty grain, nuts. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Very little hop flavor. Its heavy-handed malt flavors and sweetness take this beer to someplace nowhere close to an ESB. Style aside, the flavor is jumbled and the mouthfeel is dusty grain, dirty.

chinchill (3587) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 29 July 2015. Appearance: clear, dark brown body with a somewhat weak head that still manages to leave a bit of lacing. Aroma: appealing; nutty and malty. Flavor: follows the aroma but with less strength and more toffee than the aroma suggests. Feel: near medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: aromatic but slightly too weak flavored ESB.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip pint glass. Thanks Ben! Clear dark amber with a finger of beige head. Aromas of caramel, malt, light toasty notes and biscuit. Tastes of caramel, malt, biscuit, a bit of sweet dark fruit. Medium body with a dry finish. A bit on the sweet side.
