Poured a clear amber with a thick white head and medium carbonation. The aroma is weak, but with hints of malt and hops. The flavour is bitter, malty and refreshingly hopped. It’s a classic, quality English ESB.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasing orangey-amber colour. The aroma is spicy, marmaladey, with a warming fresh bread character. Medium body, toasty malts with a hint of biscuit. The hops are gentle, well-integrated and the marmaladey Bramling Cross note is a breath of fresh English air. Tasty stuff.
