Bottle from ASDA. Golden amber with an off white head. Notes of caramel, citrus and some spiciness. A pretty run of the mill affair really.

shrubber85 (7293) - 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 (3401) - 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.

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.
