Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle (from Sainsburys). Slightly unpleasant burnt plastic nose but the main focus here is strong malt and nutty toffee with a fair level of bitterness in the finish. High carbonation made the body seem rather thin and combined with the unpleasant plastic aroma spoilt what was otherwise a fairly decent base.

joe19612 (1847) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbuy’s. Poured a copper bronze, thin white head and moderate condition. Plenty of hops and a touch of sweet malt in the nose, full bodied and malty in the mouth with some fruity banana notes and a faint smokiness, hop bitter finish with some low malty caramel notes.

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle, from Sainsburys Kidlington. Poured a fairly standard brown maybe a touch darker. Good hoppy and fruity nose, taste was very fruity, quite suprised in fact at the full bodied fruitiness and bitterness of this beer. This was a really decent ESB.

harrisoni (13744) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2006
500ml bottle from Eurotunnel Terminal Building France. Lots of the previous raters have got most of the elements of this beer. Yes it is very malty, yes it does have a strong hop presence. But I have spent the day drinking live cask and bottled conditioned beer. At the heart of it is a candy sugar dead tasting beer and no amount of malt or hop can make up for that. British brewers, please bottle condition your beers. Please, pretty please. I want to enjoy your beer as it should be, not this fake. Trust us. Malt and hop are good though
