Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A tasty, complex beer with malt and hops throughout and a long, satisfying bitter finish. Well worthy of the title ’Champion Beer of Britain’ award 1997.

beerfest5 (1145) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 11, 2011
this is such a typical english bitter. heavy on the malts, bready, a little too sickly sweet for me, with just a touch of hops to add some bitterness. brown, no head, easy to drink but i wouldnt want more than one, some dark fruit hints, very typical.

sm89walt (1751) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2011
Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Poured with a small though lasting creamy white head leaving a solid lace atop a clear amber body. Caramel, some biscuit, honey and a light & dry English hop aroma. Malt-forward on the tongue - biscuity and toasty with a slightly herbal hop in there too. Light to medium body, quite soft on the palate with a relatively lingery dryish end. Not a bad ESB.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2011
Cask (Windmill, Wetherspoons, Stansted Airport)
6 Simple sweet malty aroma, alas sparkled.
4- Rich orange, sparkler head.
7+ Fruity malty retronasals, some coconut. Taste rich and malt, some treacle, very malty.
4 Very soft palate, carbonation pleasant. Finish sweet and malty.
13+ Solid bitter. A little more dull than a classic we had a few years ago, but still never a bad choice.

Half, cask at Stockbridge Tap. Crystal clear, dark amber body. Thin ring around the rim of the glass leaving fragile lacing behind. Smell of plain sweet malts. Toffee malts in flavour followed by a decent, dry bitter ending. Medium bodied (Edinburgh, 28.11.2010).

On tap at The Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh. Hoppy noise laced with sweet notes. Drop amber colour with a health head. Robust bitter flavor moving on to lingering hoppy notes with perhaps a hint of something sweet. Very drinkable.
