Cask conditioned @: Guide Dog, Soton. Malty toffee with mild roasty chocolate and toast flavours. Mild hops in the surprisingly light finish. A bit of a scratchy feel in the mouth from the roastiness which isnt helped by the light body.

Raw biscuit malts, caramalt is notably present, some fruit and a hint of candy sugar sweetness, but you really need to serch of that one. Taste straight up hits me as alot thinner than expected, tough sweet, roasted malts and bitter malts in the finish. Really quite disapointed actually as i was expecting a full bodied spicey fruity esb insted i got a high % normal bitter.
