I really wanted to like this more but it fell middle of the road for me.. basic gold, medium foam .. . light bitterness with a slightly unbalanced sweetness thrown in .. Ever go out for cheeseburgers and beer? The amusing house wine?

Pours a copperish color with a white head. The aroma is hops with some toffee and biscuit malt. The flavor is earthy hops along with caramel malt and toffee. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Another good seasonal beer from Real Ale that was recently released in bottles for the first time.

Sampled at repeal. Didn’t quite know what to expect here having never had a double ESB. Not sure it is that. Caramel and plenty of complex malt. Hops are very much secondary. Othets at the festival liked itba
Ot but I was just ok with it.

Bottle - Bread, caramel and some light hops. Cloudy copper with a very rich beige head. Caramel, bread and a punchy hop bitterness that fades surprisingly quickly. Nicely done.

Thanks to AttitudeBrew for this one in trade. Pours a hazy brown-amber color with an off-white head. Nose is nice caramel, toffee, cocoa, some biscuit, and a bit of earth. Flavor starts with caramel, then goes to grassy hops, then some ash, then lingering miscellaneous bitterness. Medium to full-bodied for an ESB (even a double ESB). Interesting take on the style; nice and somewhat complex.
