shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Syrupy prune malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Mildly sweet prune and toffee malt flavor. Kind of a heavy taste for an ESB.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle: Pours clear, deep amber with a short, off-white head. Malty, fruity aroma...a little banana bread. Bready malt taste....a little stale. Flat and oxidized..... Too bad, undoubtably much better if fresh.

wimpyjoe (2955) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Dark or copper-golden in colour, not much of a head. Has a good malty-hoppy aroma and this character is evident in its taste.

dogbomb (862) - ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle. Deep rich gold in colour with a thin white soapy head. Nose is nice and fruity with peach coming through. In the mouth, theres a hint of sweet butterscotch, then lemon and grapefruit, more peachiness and then a long, bitter, grapefruit finish. A well balanced drink - a "canny tipple".

Hanoi (296) - - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle: Nose is light sugar, malt, touch of caramel. Taste some summer fruits particularly berries, leading to cereal and a lightly bitter, surprisingly hoppy, herbal finish, with a very faint hint of resin. Mouth feel is reasonably full. This is a lovely bitter, and much better than I expected.
