detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, - MAR 20, 2009
Pint, Duke of Cambridge N1. Dark amber colour with a reddish tint. Robust flavours of hops and lemon with a strong grassy element. Very drinkable, with a lighter than expected palate.

leaparsons (8092) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Rusty copper with a cream foam. Aromas are earthy with red berries and wine barrel. Toffee with herbal notes and spices. Some background orange with pine. Flavours are toffee and grapefruit with raspberry. Pithy and dry with earthy notes. A nice fruity ESB.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
Ruby red, not quite clear. Patchy, light, off-white head. V Light carbonation. Light roasty aroma, with brandy and winey sweetness, fruity alcohol and a bit of vanilla and coke? But the aroma is not very strong, overall. Taste is caramel sweetness, dark fruits, some slight choc and light roast. OK body, but could maybe be a little heavier/fuller. Dry, lingering bitterness; would be nice to have more of the sweet fruity flavours left on the palate. Fairly nice, malty red ale, but the hops are fairly uninteresting and understated. Bit too sweet for the amount of flavour it has.

CH-303 (1410) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - AUG 25, 2011
Appearance: Chestnut brown, some red. Clear. Enormous amounts of creamy, off-white head. Aroma: Malt, hops, metallic. Some fruit. Taste: Malt, bitterness. Some fruit, lemon? Standard - slightly disappointed. Info: 500ml bottle, 25/8-2011

Leighton (11034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle at home shared with Lyoli. Cloudy amber pour with a weak, white head. Strong caramel and toffee notes in the aroma. Interesting flavor, pretty sweet, bready, nutty, some prunes maybe, and leafy bitters. Medium in body with average, fizzy carbonation. Finish is kinda weird too. Not bad, but has some uncommon characteristics. More bread and nuts with some fruits and caramel. Decent.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Reddish brown ale. A bit monotone! Dry and crisp. Fairly bitter finish. Improved a little by pouring some of the sediment in but overall an average beer.

500ml bottle - at ChrisO’s - thanks!
5 Sweetish malty aroma

3 Needed swirling to soften the palate
10 Not unpleasant, but desperately boring.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2010
From the Bottle at Chris O’s, Kensal Rise 06/08/2010 Floral aroma. Amber red coloured a little rich on the palate fruity and malty with a hint of bitterness in a dry malt finish.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Southampton Arms. Red/brown with a lively off white head. Fruity berry malts with a touch of caramel. Late developing hop profile which is of the dry dusty english variety. Very enjoyable in deed.
