Braudog (5600) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle: Poured a red-orange shininess with barely a head. The aroma is a musty fruit, the flavor leaning more to a very sweet malt and a mushy earthy finish. The body is lighter than the muddy flavor profile would suggest. , but this is a hearty and flavorful English ale. (#3048, 8/3/2007)

Quack-Duck (7778) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2007
bottle. Copper colour, creamy head. Quite hoppy, pleasantly bitter, rounded by malt. Full-bodied. Hints of orange zest, actually the orange flavour reminds me of typical English orange marmelade.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle 500ml. Pours a copper brown with a rich off-white head. Sweet aromas of caramel and dark fruits. Wonderful malts come through in the caramel, molasses and black cherry flavours. Full on flavours, nothing subtle about them. Hops kicking in on the finish for a good bitterness. Fairly full-bodied with light to medium carbonation.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 18, 2007
This bitter/ESB pours a deep brown color from a 500ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, orange and sweet. A medium bodied ESB. Malts are toffee and caramel. Hops are earthy and floral. Hints of orange and citrus. Nice balance. Lively carbonation. Nice soft malts with a touch of chocolate. Seems a step above a lot of other ESB/bitters Iíve had lately. Mouthfeel is full. Finish si clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

yngwie (13219) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle. Copper, a bit unclear body with a beige head. Biscuity, malty nose with a nice hoppiness and some sweetish notes. Quite malty flavor, some sweetness, and a nice hoppiness to balance it. Medium to full body. A really nice Otter. (070608)

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Pours a murky copper body with a small beige head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is malty toffee, herbal hops and a hint of ripe pears. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Taste is well balanced with toffee, herbal hops bitterness, fruity overripe red apples, pear skins, and a hint of mineral. A prototypical English ESB.

TheBeerGod (5184) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. Copper to near dark brown pour. Very murky. Small random bubbles gathered together on the right side of the glass. Nose is caramel, sweet malts, flowery hops and apple skins. Taste is hoppy and floral with more apple skins, soft caramel and sweet malts. Very bitter taste and lingering bitterness throughout. Body is soft and light-medium. Carbonation is there but seemingly faded. Ends with more caramel, sweet malts, apple, floral hops and some earthy hops. More bitterness.

Sammy (8420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2007
Light-golden body with lace and a bit of foam. Faint smell hops. A fresh ale, as if it was tapped a day ago, of understated and malted hoppy ale, not too bitter. Above average carbonation for a UK produced ale. Very drinkable, medium mouthfeel. Citrus and lightly grapefruity.
