COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

sm89walt (1792) - 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.

Cask at Wetherspoons Rickmansworth, Herts. Dark amber coloured pour with a medium white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Tastes malty, fruity, caramel, slight sweetness. Easy drinking session beer from Mordue.

FatPhil (10059) - 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.
