3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma features burnt sugar, dark toffee, a hint of dried fruit and a hint of zesty earthy hops. In the mouth the dark toffee burnt sugar character is pronounced with a mid palate flash of hop flavour and a dry toffee bitter finish. Decent beer but somewhat one dimensional.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear ruby red pour with large rocky light brown head. Aroma sweet and tangy malts, touch of cough syrup, fresh. Flavour is malts, toasted grains (darker than hue suggests), moving to robust bitterness. Touch overcarbonated for a bitter, medium bodied, but with a good length to the finish. Not my favourite style, but is one of the better bitters I have tried.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent copperish orange with foamy head that’s somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells malty with a mild hop profile. Tastes like it smells with notes of toffee. Nice and smooth on the palate. A solid ESB.
