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.

Taste 2/9 bottle. Looks: Dark cloudy tea colored body with a thin tan head. Aroma: Sweet malt (almost syrup) with some yeast must in the background. Taste: Very malt heavy, a little hops coming through in the finish. Yeast and hops are in the background for the style.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 Pours a murky brown with a very thin white head. Mouth is kind of flat, almost no carbonation. Flavor is complex and hard for me to describe. Very strong roasted malt, some juicy hops, and a little bitter chocolate. Interesting.

Cask. Clear copper with a good-sized head. Sweet citrus scent. Quite sweet in the mouth but also watery. Some carbonation. Very malty with mown grass and roasted nuts. Not bad.

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.

Strangely lacking in body for a 5.8. per center.Not a lot of flavour although a slight fruitiness does fight its way through.Quite pleasing browny/red appearance but all round a bit dissapointing.

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 !
