"Stoked"to be drinking this is South Africa! Amazing aroma and quite complex. Could drink a bunch of these and still find something new.

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.

Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Now I thought this was much better. Amber with a full fluffy beige head, leaving lacy trails down the glace. Rich and super hoppy. Iím not sure if itís a trend yet but lately Iíve sampled some really strong hoppy UK beers which are a delight and a flavour sensation. Soft malts are smooth and silky, with the hoppiness continuing on down your throat for ages after drinking the beer. Very nice indeed.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2006 Bottle conditioned. Clear amber coloured with a slim off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and fruit. Nicely hoppy in the taste with some citrus fruit. Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Very good.

OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 17, 2010
Trade Sample. A great strong bitter with a very firm bitter finish. Aromas of caramel malt, dark fruit (plum), and earthy hops. In the mouth the beer presents a big crystal malt character with toffee and caramel which is more than ballanced by a big earthy fruity hop flavour and a lasting bitterness which demands anouther sip. Good beer.

From WLVL Lovely caramel malty ESB. Enough hops to keep things from being too sweet complex flavor but goes down easy. Serving: Bottle

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2005
Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham. Rich red/brown colouring and an inviting aroma. Very deep, heavy flavour, with some marmalade and a faint fireplace hint of choc. Nice sticky mouthfeel and similar lacing. Flavoursome and very enjoyable.

imdownthepub (10220) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2005
Cask Conditioned at The Plough, Warmington, Warks. Reddish amber beer with bubbly head. Big fruity bitter, plums, sweetish, apricot with a fanfare hop finish. Strongly bitter on the tongue, naturally effervescent and warming. Decent stuff.

niquillis (818) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle from Tesco. A typical Titanic beer with a sweet aftertaste. A red brown ale that takes well to a bottle. Syrup finish with a roast start.

Martin243 (769) - 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.
