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 itís one of the better as far as flavor. Tap in London.

The_Osprey (4165) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
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. Itís OK. A classic I guess, but also a bit generic. Not the best showcase of English hop. Itís fine, but I wouldnít want a second pint of it.

mighty_meadow (304) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Pint in the Auld Brig, Irvine (JDW) Looks good, smells good, tastes a bit syrupy, malty fruits, smooth. Decent enough but doesnít taste like a 5.2%ABV.

AshtonMcCobb (4200) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2015
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.
