For the type of beverage claimed it is exactly what it claims. Nice floral aroma and deep amber coloring. Not a beverage I would drink normally but for this area it’s one of the better as far as flavor. Tap in London.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Apr 2015 - Cask at the Willow Walk. Orange, still, clear, small foamy beige head, sparse lacing. Almost no aroma here, maybe a bit musty and papery. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is masonry, dusty noble hop, woody, medium bitterness. It’s OK. A classic I guess, but also a bit generic. Not the best showcase of English hop. It’s fine, but I wouldn’t want a second pint of it.

Pint in the Auld Brig, Irvine (JDW)
Looks good, smells good, tastes a bit syrupy, malty fruits, smooth.
Decent enough but doesn’t taste like a 5.2%ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at the Standing Order.
Appearance - deep amber with a decent head.
Nose - toffee maybe some lime.
Taste - caramel going into lime marmalade. Biscuity background.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish,some malt some hops
Overall - good but ESB can be and should be more complex than this.

Must have had this before but had never entered it for whatever reason. Malty with some earthy hops and a smooth, heavy finish. Decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Classic ESB from England’s oldest active brewery, named after old signs depicting a bishop’s finger. Creamy head on a bronzed amber-coloured robe, flowery and caramelly aroma with the characteristic diacetyl (buttermilk) accent only present in the cask-conditioned version. Well-balanced, malty taste, supple mouthfeel, dried fruits, finishing mildly hoppy, very thirst-quenching.

Backlog. On cask at Green Lion Inn. Dominated by slightly sweet caramel, dried fruits and a hint of herbs. A decent example.
