Oakes (14076) - 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.

bhensonb (13224) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Aroma of malt and fruit. Amber color with a great tan head. It persists. Flavor is fruit and malt. Malt persists. This reminds me more of an American brown than an English ESB. Finish is malt, tempered by bitter.

FatPhil (12190) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Bottle. Rich red, little to no head. Slightly chocolatey malty aroma. Taste matches - slightly yeasty hint but then there’s a great chocolatey malt blast. Long bitter finish too. Good strong ale.

imdownthepub (12169) - 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.
