BBB63 (6294) - 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.

Towey1989 (117) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Clear deep amber colour with a creamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, biscuit and red berries. Taste is malty, flavours of caramel and red berries plus a little bit of orange citrus. Quite rich and light bodied but a smooth texture. A malty, biscuity finish. An overall good easy drinking beer.

rondphoto (2459) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 10, 2014
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Ipwa City IA --- Hazy dirty orange amber color, frothy sea of tan head, streaks of lace. Good aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is caramel malt that adds toffee and biscuit before adding light grass bittering in the finish. A typical, but really good English brew.

rubbishystuff (1909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 From WLVL Lovely caramel malty ESB. Enough hops to keep things from being too sweet complex flavor but goes down easy. Serving: Bottle

TBone (13217) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle at Ravintola Kirjakauppa. Clear nut brown color, small steady off-white head. Nutty caramelly aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Nutty, caramellly, even a bit salty. Close to Fullers Esb. Perharps a bit less hoppy.

olio (6794) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
50 cl bottle @ Oluthuone Pekko.
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Very nutty and malty aroma and flavor, mild hops on the nose, some caramel and dry fruity notes on the flavor. Somewhat creamy and slick palate with a bitter dry malty finish. A straightforward, typical English Bitter. Clean. A bit too English for me though. Decent anyway.
