harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle as a Christmas present from my brother and drunk at home a few months later. Clear amber colour lasting thin beige head. Certainly a tasty premium bitter, lots of fruity malt and biscuit here. Very drinkable. Earthy, brown malts, earthy hops. It’s a premium bitter. Some blackcurrant and hedgerow. Fine.

The_Osprey (6631) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2015
500ml bottle as ’Old Luxters Farmhouse Barn Ale’, 5.4%, BB July 2017. ’By appointment to Her Majesty the Queen’. Consumed in Blaendulais. Clear dark amber, lightly sparkling, small thin white head, light lacing. Aroma is almond, touch yeasty, cheap cookies. Body is medium, soft carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is spicy, bready malt, tangy metallics, dried tangerine peel, soft peppery bitterness. An interesting beer. Definitely not your average bitter.

danlo (2606) - 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 (3030) - 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 (13418) - 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.
