ManVsBeer (8767) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
Dark ale with a slight red glow. Sweet tasting with winter fruits in the aroma for a suitable winter ale. Has a mild toffee flavouring and easy to drink.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle. My first Welsh beer. Pours a maroon red color with a frothy beige head. Aroma is of toasted malts, hops, dark fruit and caramel. Flavor is of the toasted malt, hops, floral and fruity notes (not in the way of dark fruit though), along with some toffee and caramel notes. The body is medium and slightly dry. Overall a pretty nice ESB. Nice to have a slightly mild British beer, after having so many big and bold American beers.

omhper (23716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2010
Bottled. Clear nut brown, creamy head. Aroma of chocolate mousse. Mid sweet with light-medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Some cocoa roastiness takes you to asalty bitter finish. Pleasant beer!
