Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2011
500mL bottle. Nice amber orange pour with a cream-colored head. Smells of brown sugar, hops, and spice. Tastes of molasses, spice (coriander), and slight brown sugar with an underlying bitterness. Finish is bittersweet. Balanced with a complex flavor -- very good.

Pours a hazy golden color. Not a big mouthfeel, but a persistent flavor of roasted malt and mild bitterness. REasonable beer, like a lot of others.

This one had me scratching my head a bit, as when I first poured it, the aroma was not too much in your face but was there with sweet oak hint. A beautiful copper red color with a very small white fully diminishing head on this one. I really enjoyed the flavor however, with an initial sweet nutty caramel start finishing with a fruity sweet taste that was quick and did not linger on the palate. Very little bitterness to this beer and was quite refreshing and relaxing. It had a watery texture with medium body. I really enjoyed the taste of this beer, and it is unfortunate that the aroma really was a bit of a let down. Maybe it was my particular beer, but with a strong prevalent aroma this beer would be up on my list.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2010
@Hobgoblin, Bath. Golden-brown. Caramelly nose with toffeeish accents. A fairly rich toffeeish brew, accented toward treacle and some gentle roasty-toasty bitterness late. Another good otter.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Cask. Lovely lace on a hazy red body. Quite a big, powerful aroma. Fruity and rather intense. Lots of dates. Also prune--maybe prune schnapps. Touch phenolic. Body is nice. Lots of prune again. Finishing dry with a big of alcohol on the tongue. Fruit cake with the bitterness of fruit skins.

imdownthepub (10467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Phoenix Wines, Swanage, Dorset. Murky brown with slight head. Not the best looking beer ever, but the flavour overcomes the looks, just. Fruity malts with an apple, plum character, a touch of coffee ground and a general sweetness carrying in to a powdery hop. Reasonable.

Well I thought I liked esb’s then maybe not. then there was this one. Pretty good. Not overall what I look for in appearance but good bitter taste. Would enjoy a bit more hops.

Pyobon (943) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2009
Draught. Clear coppery brown, good thick white head. Slightly tangy aroma, maybe apples. Creamy body with medium carbonation. Fairly tangy fruity foretaste with finish that is moderately bitter and has a malty marmitey lingering taste. Nice beer.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Pint bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with just a thin ring for a head. The nose is fruity iced tea and sweet malt. The taste is caramel, light chocolate covered raisins and bitters in the finish. Thinner mouthfeel and pretty flat. Tastes better than I thought it would from the aroma, but nothing special.
