Killed by kegging. Aroma neutered by nitro. Evidently this could be a good beer if they hadn’t killed it. Must try the cask version.

Quite a disappointing ESB. Smooth and creamy but lacks of refinement of a Fullers ESB.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
275ml bottle from The Grapes, Wandsworth. Fruity aroma on initial opening. Pours a light amber with a smallish head that subsides. Very dry but lacking in flavour with a bit of a tinny taste as others have mentioned.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel and toasty malts with light fruity esters in the very mild aroma. Clear brown body is topped by a low, off white head that recedes to a partial cover with spotty lacing. Mild floral hops over caramel malts with fairly light bitterness. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. A bit disappointing for a dry hopped beer. Bottle sampled in Fall 2006 (Bičropholie, Jul-06).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
good flavors (although a bit heavy on the caramel) honey caramel or toffee ish. watery and a bit thin (tastewise). a touch of mix (up) fruit and malt (again weakish). bitterness that is not overpronounced and might be immature. tinny taste may be sign of a crapped out bottle. though i have certainly had this before. typical for it’s class and moderate as described.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Pours amber with a thin, enduring head. it definitely smells like English malts and yeast. Medium bodied and mildly hoppy, this caramel malt and light fruit flavored beer is easy to drink.
