Pours lightly cloudy amber with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Aroma of toffee, alefruits, plums, earthy toasted malts, Taste is lightly toasted malt, caramel, fuggles and pears. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly sticky with soft carbonation. Not too shabby, an enjoyable beer.

Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 17/1/08. Orange coloured with a decent, off-white head. Caramel and red fruit aroma with some earthy hops. Full mouth feel with more malt and a long bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

bottle ... Very malty, you can really pull out the Maris flavor. Hop characteristic is weak but allows the malt to dominate. Toasty flavor with an appreciable ESB character.

Bottle. A very drinkable ESB. This beer is a burnt amber in color, with little to no head. It has a floral aroma with a good crispness. The flavor is fairly malty. There are also hints of molasses, and a well rounded toasty character. Enjoyable.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Lightly hazy dark copper pour covered by an irregular and small white head. Sandy and lightly earthy nose with a pleasantly minty hop twist that contrast with the toasty and biscuity malts whose sweetness escapes the hops’ radar. Medium bodied, moderately high carbonation. Good.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 20, 2007
Rating # 800!! Nose of captain crunch crunchberries cereal, bisquick batter, dried fruit, and flowers. Pours slightly sparkling copper amber. The mostly lastng creamy off-white head is slight and mostly diminsishing, very light lace. The brew is very well balanced with light acidity, and a nice tempered dried fruit finish. The flavor is exceptional, and this would make a stellar session offering. The medium to full body is creamy and soft. The finish feels clean.
