MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Waitrose. Yum. This is really quite good. Butterscotch and sticky toffee with a hint of vanilla and then some hops in the nose. Very brown coloured body with just a wisp of an off white head which leaves a little lacing. Gentle and sweet malts with some caramel and a very pleasant hoppy finish with just a lick of alchohol and gradually growing sweeter as it lingers. Very nice indeed. The more I drink of this the better it gets. Had to get this rate in quick as this stuff is a sinker. Very pleasantly surprised.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Not obviously bottle conditioned, I couldn’t see sediment, but no obvious pasteurisation notes either. Dark amberwith dissipating head. Aroma of caramel, orangey hop, liquorice. Good body, complex finish with hop and liquopricy, choclatey malt.

pivnizub (9310) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2005
Cask at The Royal Oak, Lyndhurst-Bank : Amber coloured, nearly no head; vinous fruity nose, some traces of liquorice and alcohol; sweetish-fruity start; sweetish flavour; ending in a bitter-aromatic and sweet finish; a warming, pretty full-bodied and well-rounded brew !

Cask, the Cockney Pub. Dark amber-red with a solid head. Malty, fruity with notes of nuts and chcolate, dry finish. Medium-full body. Perhaps the best ESB I’ve had!?

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottled. Deep, honey amber coloured body with soft, fine head. Malt and vanilla aroma, generously lifts of the top. Lovely vanilla and malt flavour buttressed by good bitterness and succulent mature hop backbone. Quite enjoyed this little guy.
