3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty decent standard ESB. Copper-ruby juice with a cream light beige head. Nice earthy and herbal UK hops, light basement and caramel stink. Taste is bittersweet hops and honey. A light oiliness, low carbonation and dry finish make it a classic bitter choice.

Mooie amberkleur, een duidelijke geur van caramel, licht bittere smaak met een duidelijke caramelsmaak, de afdronk is prettig bitter. Heb weinig ervaring met Brits bier, maar dit is een prettige kennismaking! Lekker bier!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can. Strong aroma of caramel. Clear amber color with white head. A light sweet taste. Medium body, creamy texture, with average carbonation, and a very mild bitter finish. Overall a very smooth brew that goes down easy.

Bottle, on this occasion brought round by Mr Goodall. Amber brown colour. Quite a malty bitter with some English hop character. A little sweet. I used to really like this, dunno if GK hit the recipe at all? It was fine, a pleasant bitter, but I’ve been in a mood to enjoy more the old school bitters and less of the overly hopped amateur stuff of late, amd this still didn’t really hit the spot.

Drank as a draught. The beer is quite still and has a slightly sweet taste. Not bad but a bit boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50ml bottle. Quite a strong herbal floral aroma on opening, some menthol-like aroma, later red apple skins and some sweetness. Classic inviting English ale aroma. Looks handsome too, lovely amber, brite as. Head diminishes to a few mm but persistent. Flavour is much more about malts--light caramel, cherryish, fruity. Dry and and tangy in the mouth. Very drinkable.

Rated based on notes taken 15 Jul 2011 -- I have been intrigued by this beer for so long and could never get myself to buy it. I’m glad I finally did, good beer.

Fruits, caramel, bread, grass and some grains in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Overall a really nice ESB, lots of malt sweetness, but with a bitterness that balances the flavour great.
