danlo (1124) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy brown amber colour, foam off-white head that slowly dissipates away and malty, fruity, yeasty aroma. Taste is sweetish malt with a sourish citrusy edge, some hay, wood, yeast plus a metallic hop bitterness. Slightly spritzy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, earthy dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable ESB.

Bottled 08/03/14. An amber brown coloured beer with pretty much no head. Fairly thin fruitiness in the nose. Nicer in the mouth. Good fruits and a bit of toffee sweetness. A tasty malt driven ESB.

evergreen0199 (1995) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle. Deep copper coloured pour with small beige head on top. Fruity/bready aroma. Fruity, hoppy, bready taste. Refreshing and a very pleasant beer indeed. This beer is brewed at Hambleden near Henley which is a really beautiful English village.

imdownthepub (10125) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle conditioned, 500 ml. Dark amber with slight head. Big flavoursome bitter, plenty of hops on a slightly caramel malt. The overwhelming flavour is of a tea like hop, dry, bittering with a slightly burnt note. A light touch of pine needle also on the tongue. It softens to the finish, but there is a slight stale note. Decent enough.

asedzie (592) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2007
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy beautiful copper with beige head. Aroma is fruity hops, berries, light citrus, yeast and bread dough. Some earth odors, as well. Very rich aroma. Very different from anything I’ve had. Prominent resinous, bitter hoppiness. Sweetness a level below this. Maltiness and caramel. Other aged flavors in there as well. Mouthfeel is soft and full. Very bitter. Excellent.

berkshirejohn (4442) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2007
Bottle conditioned, bought at Waitrose, Wokingham Mid-brown in colour, slightly hazy despite very careful pouring (and lots of sediment); light fruity flavour with a good, long-lasting, bitter follow through. Very easy to drink!

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a bubbly light brown head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity combined with a light acidity. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit, and a refreshing hoppiness, leading to a bitter end. Nicely refreshing.
