Draught. While this is lauded as a classic I am not terribly fond of it. There are better ESAs out there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium dark crisp brown with a lacy head that clings to the edges of the glass.
Chocolatey flavours in the aroma with some dark pruney fruits.
Weak malts and hops but it is tasty. The finish contains bitter malts and caramel sweetness, it’s great and smooth.
Pretty delicious seasonal; drinkable and friendly,provides rosy cheeks a plenty.

cask@Pied Bull, Streatham, London (drunk in a comfy leather armchair next to a roaring open fire) - Pours a dark brown colour with a persistent frothy head and lacing. Dark roasted toasty malts, nutty, rich dark fruits, christmas cake like, some spice, slight caramel/toffee/choc, good mouthfeel. Almost back to as good as I remembered back in the early 90s (and certainly much better than over the last 5 years I have tried it)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At Dirty Dick’s, London. Dark brown/red with a small beige head. Aroma is very light, but I get some spices. Taste: oranges, grapefruit, some spices, medium bitter, quite a lot going on here, but I can’t place anything else. Medium body, low carbonation. Not as good as I remember it from a few years ago, but still good and drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smak och doft av stor sötma, choklad, lagom besk, möjligen något för söt och vattning.
