Sammy (9823) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2007
Light-golden body with lace and a bit of foam. Faint smell hops. A fresh ale, as if it was tapped a day ago, of understated and malted hoppy ale, not too bitter. Above average carbonation for a UK produced ale. Very drinkable, medium mouthfeel. Citrus and lightly grapefruity.

yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle. Copper, a bit unclear body with a beige head. Biscuity, malty nose with a nice hoppiness and some sweetish notes. Quite malty flavor, some sweetness, and a nice hoppiness to balance it. Medium to full body. A really nice Otter. (070608)

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle 500ml. Pours a copper brown with a rich off-white head. Sweet aromas of caramel and dark fruits. Wonderful malts come through in the caramel, molasses and black cherry flavours. Full on flavours, nothing subtle about them. Hops kicking in on the finish for a good bitterness. Fairly full-bodied with light to medium carbonation.

This poured with very little head into a tall pint glass and appeared to be an interesting color of red-brown-and gold when held to the light. I liked the ESB style that came forward in a rich aftertaste. This would have been good for casual sipping with a fat roast beef hero.

thornecb (4923) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Pours hazy amber into an English pint. White head quickly subsides to pancake surface. Caramel and resin aromas. Silky with upfront caramel and a lasting sour malt finish.

Pours a two finger cream head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Caramel nose. Flavor is sweet caramel that changes to a slight bitter finish. $4.35 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.
