Martin243 (999) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2013
Swift 1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Deep red- brown, with a dense off-white head. Roast malt sweetness, with a flavour from 1970ís sweetshop that has been bugging me since last night, so Iím going to say pear drops and rhubarb and custard: just a hint, mind. Lovely silky mouthfeel, and a generous bitter finish. One of the best premium bitters Iíve had in a long while. Hope to try a pint or two.

jmgreenuk (7083) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 1, 2012
Poured a clear golden brown almost copper colour with a thin broken tan head. The aroma was of treacle and very strong. The flavour was bitter with malt and caramel. The palate had some metallic bitterness. A satisfying winter ale. Serve warm!

Bottle from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of mild roast malt with a brisk floral/citrus hop accompaniment. Med body or better. Flavor is fruit, floral and thereís some citrus. Maybe a little earthiness lingering below. Itís quite fresh and tasty. Finishes towards dry, towards bitter, and full of flavor. Yummy stuff.

BBB63 (6526) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle and served in no-nik imperial pint glass: Clean deep golden near amber hue with a lasting frothy head and good spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hop, dusty pale malts, hint of crystal, very slight butterscotch British Ale yeast ester. The taste is smooth malt versus bittering hop balance. While not overly complex it is an easy drinker and far better than the other offering I had from this brewery. Slight acidic fruitiness from the yeast and some lingering metallic notes. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied with a sprite bite, tinny finish. Overall a solid drinker that methinks would be most excellent on handpull.

Leighton (17767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours clear, golden-brown with a weak head. Toasty malt nose with some leather and light brown sugar. Mild sweet finish, some dirt, leaves and earth. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Faint ripe fruits in the finish, more dirt and leaves. OK. Itís just pretty average stuff.

gripweed57 (1302) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours a nice orange, copper color topped by a huge rocky beige head. Toasted malt nose hints at toffee and buttery biscuits. Lightly carbonated, smooth caramel malt flavor with floral hops in the first sip. Nice balance with some peppery hops and complex maltiness in the finish. A good representive example of the English ESB style.
