Craft Clerkenwell. Clear amber beer, no real head. Palate is light with very moderate carbonation. Mild dry malt - light caramel. A little tangy dried fruits. Semi dry finish. Mmmmm. When I think back to 1978 and what a great single Identity was - this is a remarkably flaccid tribute! It really falls short of the brashness and inventiveness of the band. Perhaps I’m expecting too much.

leaparsons (7988) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Dark ruby red and brown with a beige foam. Aromas are plummy with raisins and toffee malts. Woody and earthy with a vinous and slightly herbal and spicy character. Flavours are toffee with red berries and raisins. Woody and dry with pepper and copper coins. Nettle with lightly bitter lemon. Nearly good.

Garrold (1135) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Blacker Hall Farm shop, near Wakefield. Boosh!! This is bad! BBE March 2014, but this is awful. Like iron filings. I’m just glad I got as part of a four for five quid offer.

Sigmund (4952) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2013
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.0%. Brown colour, moderate off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and ripe berries. The flavour is malty with notes of caramel and brown bread, but is not too sweet. Hints of berries. Decent English hops in the finish. Very good beer.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: en typeriktig bitter både av utseende og smak,, men i sterkeste laget for tradisjonell pøsebruk. Meget god, elegant men ukomplisert.

danlo (1087) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
500ml bottle. Copper amber colour, creamy off-white head leaving lots of lacing and aroma of malt caramel & toffee. Taste is sweet malt, slightly roasted, with caramel, toffee, brown sugar, raisins, fruit cake and some lingering spicy bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, warming alcohol comes through at the finish. Quite OK.

planky84 (1930) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Bottle from Theatre of Wine, Greenwich. Deep red/brown pour with a beige head. Raisin, orchard fruit and bonfire toffee aroma. Flavours of toffee apple, sultanas and sweet spice. Malt laden finish. Not bad.

jamesie1857 (1347) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2013
500ml bottle - nice deep ruby body, thick white lasting head. Good malty aroma, hefty kick of dried fruit there too. The taste has a well rounded cake fruit taste to it, with a nice bitter finish. It has a meaty mouthfeel to it too. Quite impressed with this. New entry into my Top 20 ESB Hit Parade!
