Bottle at beer dudes tasting at Appellation Wines Comely Bank thanks to James Tulloch. Appearance - amber to chestnut with a thin head. Nose - earthy and spicy with some fruit cake. Taste - tobacco more fruit cake and candied fruit. Palate - medium to full bodied with a dry texture and a long dry finish. Overall - needs to be more bitter for this style I think. That said it’s a decent ESB.

jamestulloch (1388) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive, tasting at Appellation Wines. Hazy chestnut body with a thin beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, orange and a hint of filter coffee. Flavour of fig biscuits, sweet caramel and earth. Bitter finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel Soft fizz. A bit too sweet for my liking. Lacks hop character.
