dfinney23 (1573) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2012
7oz bottle pours perfectly into a stupid little hotel glass. Hazy to the point of murky. Aroma of butterscotch. Taste is bittersweet toffee. Quite creamy.

Cask at Horse Brass. Aromas are caramel and toffee. Tastes is classic ESB with a punch. Very well done and scary good.

boxofrane (2045) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2012
XS Bottle. Pours hazy copper with an off-white film on top. The aroma is fairly caramel malt forward with a little bit of a booziness. Taste is on the sweet side with a lot of that caramel taste and a little alcohol warmth on the finish. There is also some bitterness on the finish. This is pretty good.

Hazy amber beer. Softish palate but with a carbonated sting. A little creamy malt and then mild hop bitterness. Quite minerally. Decent but lacking something, perhaps a little watery. Hard to criticise but doesn’t make the top tier.

brigg (499) - Washington DC, USA - APR 16, 2012
(7oz bottle) Cloudy brown-copper with a small tan head. Toasted caramel malt aroma, sweet; pine hops. Flavor is very sweet and moderately bitter; lots of fruit up front (orange, grape, apple), acidic, pine notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Alcohol is surprisingly evident.

annunz123 (844) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2012
Caramel and bread in the aroma. Taste starts sweet with a little spice, and finishes smooth with bittering hops that provide balance without overpowering. Carbonation gives a creamy mouthfeel. Really, really good.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2012
Keg, Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, 03/04/12. Muddy ruby with barely a skim of beige.That sickly, peachy US malt-sodden thing; peach iced tea, redcurrant wine gum. Sweet tinned peach, peach-flavoured barley water and strawberry aroma. Not for me.
