3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in August 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear russet in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong aroma of fruity malt in the long nose. Creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. throughout. Pale malt gives a fiery digestive biscuit base with toffee and raisin fruit noted. Good smack of dusty hops present in the metallic aftertaste which is long in intensity. Finish is slightly dry and moreish with malt and currant fruit full in abundance. A robust and decent ESB, quite powerful for 5.2% and punches above its weight.

500ml bottle. Pours copper with a brown leaning and tan head that leaves a slight lace. Spicy/earthy hops on the nose with a nice caramelness. Lots of the same on the palate with a finish that seems to switch back and forth between bitter and sweet. Solid session ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light fruitiness, light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, light grassy hoppyness. Nice fruity hoppyness - bit too sweet/too much caramel for me.
