Bottle. Brewtique, Macclesfield. 8.5%. Hazy, dark copper colour. Film of sticky, off white head. Big, minty, herby, toffee aroma. Fairly resinous. Dank, and fusty. Verges on the medicinal. Beautifully aromatic. Taste is light, spicy dry, with an orange pith, and orange zest, soft bitterness. Palate is rich, oily, and smooth. Finishes long, light, zesty bitter. So tasty. Beautifully balanced. Wow. I like this a lot!

Draught at Taphouse. Low and quickly disappearing white fluffy head. Cloudy red brown body. Sweet roasted malt strawberries aroma. Mild and sweet fruity flavor with a dry hops bitterness and some notes of grass. Low carbonation. Long bitter sweet finish. Alcohol well hidden. Well balanced. Lovely.

Doften Dov något komplex lite jordkällare. Krämig känns den är jövligt Ofiltrerat. Inga speciellt fräscha Dipa smaker. Nya ok IPA man inte behöver dricka igen. 9% hindrar ju andra öl testas.

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.

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.

Bottle, MAD tasting, cheers to James Tulloch! Pours dark amber, thick off-white head. Big resin aromas, pine too. Taste is toffee sweet, crystal malt, bitter builds up, but a little sweet for me.
