3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: This poured a deep copper body with a sustained, creamy off-white head. The aroma is sweet toffee, fresh apples, and a sharp floral hopping. Smooth. The flavor is a skilled blending of toffee, caramel apples, crushed nuts, and a soft herbal bitterness to balance it all out. It finishes on a fruity, caramel note with an underlying floral bite. Complex and tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bronze with a lasting foamy white head. Aroma of hops & lemons-slighty toasty. Fairly complex taste with that kind of condensed complexity common in british bottle-conditioned ales. So we’ve got toasted almonds, bubblegum, coconut, a metallic edge and a bitter, grainy dryish finish. Kind of alright then... yet somehow not quite up to it’s legendary status.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Cask at GBBF] Amber colour. Heavily resiny. Sweetish and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Astringent very resiny bitter finish. Unrefined, but certainly sticks out.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Light orange pour, with a medium layer of fairly coarse off-white bubbles. A sweet, flowery hop aroma with marmalade and light carmel. Briskly hoppy, with a toasty sweetness and a lingering orange peel flavor. After the real ales I’ve tasted recently, this seems highly carbonated stuff. But I can’t say I mind: this beer seems right being a little bombastic. And while it’s entered here as an ESB, it strikes me as being properly hop-forward enough to be an English-style IPA, as the label insists. Or just stay as listed here.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Clear, sparkling, deep golden beer with a small off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma with some alcohol notes. Too weak I think. The flavor starts off with alcohol, but soon replaced by a sweet maltyness, caramel and hops. Medium to full body, with a very high carbonation level and sweetness. Quite sugary, malty finish. Maybe the carbonation level is to blaim, or maybe my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed. (060712)
