Copper-red in colour, no head. Has a high sweetness in both aroma and taste and fairly sugary in the latter respect.

500 ml bottle, Christmas present from Sister in law: (Thanks, Denise). Poured into a shaker. Dark brown, tan head. Nutty biscuity malt aroma. Similar flavours, with the addition of plummy fruit, and a hint of deciduous wood. (Spruce?). Proper brown British beer, and a great example.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Sept 2007, drank Feb 2007.
Poured into a pint sleeve a deep red mahogany body with an off white tight foaming head, looked a picture, a real bitter, not one of these new light coloured bitters that are flooding the UK market at the moment.
Aroma of biscuity malts with a hoppy undertone.
Good malty flavour, strong bitter taste, fine example of how a good British bitter should taste like.
For a UK non-bottled-conditioned beer, this is as good as it gets, heavy malts stay, the 5% is evident, but not overpowering.
Very impressed with this beer, interesting stuff on the label too, all about why its got the name and some history about one of Englands most visited stately homes (where the brewery is), Chatsworth House.

Decent boring brown beer. Good aroma and follow through - round and a touch on the thin side. Reasonable

Bottle [500ml]. Pours a deep amber with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, toffee, light hops, dark fruit and nuts. Flavour of caramel malt, a good amount of hops for the style, dark fruit and some light spices. Medium bodied. Wow, this is very good, surprisingly so, I really enjoyed it.

Bottle.Whilst scouring the world for number 2000 i suddenly remembered this little gem.Brewed not so far away from my home it was a brown and poured with a brown head. Medium body and quite malty.Some nuttiness and a lingering malty aftertaste. Bought after a delightful day out at Chatsworth. Happy memories and congratulations to me on 2000.Now for 3000!

Bottle conditioned, 500ml. From Chatsworth Farm Shop, Pilsley, Derbys. Copper red colour with white head. Rich malty beer, fruity, raisins, sultanas with prunes, sticky and juicy. Some drying nut notes and a rounded hop note. Smashing beer, shame about the football I was watching at the time.

500ml bottle. A rich chestnut colour, slightly hazy and with fine carbonation, topped by a cream head; a deep malt and raisin aroma - rather like a malted fruit loaf;smooth and juicy in the mouth, with a lingering juiciness developing over a spicy hop finish. An excellent example of an ESB.
