Cask at the brewpub... Golden amber... Thin white lacing... Soft light lemon... Soft lemon fruits nose ... Light sulpur... Lemon fruits TEJA (3056) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2011
Cask at the Fox and Crown.
Thick lasting off whhite foam. Litle opaque, yellow color. Strange hop aroma. Hoppy taste with some caramell and malt sweetness. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2008
Cask at the Fox & Crown, Nottingham. Gold with a small white head. Initial metallic aroma with hops later developed sweetness. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Slightly grainy taste with some bitterness though not a lot of impact. Bit warm, to be frank, and well past its best. Disappointing in the light of favourable reviews from raters whose judgment I respect. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2008
A Sim rate (cask at the Wenlock): Smells of feet, stilton and a bit of apple. Would possibly make a very good cheese platter. Very standard golden colour. Flavour is not great, but not terribly offensive. Tiny bit of peach and slightly bitter with a tangy finish. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2006

Beer Festival. Slightly wheaty/grainy characters, with some appley fruit. Slight acidic bitter finish. Easy drinking.
Cask Conditioned at Reading BF 2006 (Sunday). Golden. Malty and fruity with an odd cheesy edge. Interesting but not one you could drink a lot of. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2006 Cask Stillage at the Mill At The Pier, Wigan 09/03/2001
Poured very lively from the barrel and had a woody aftertaste. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2005
Cask (handpulled) at the Fox and Crown, Basford, Nottingham. A splendid ESB from the brewery tap. Rich amber body, great white head, sensibly hopped, sustained fruit through to the finish. Well worth the trip just for this. leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2005
Cask at Out of the Vaults, Leicester. Golden with a white head. Aromas are grain, citrus fruit, pear, oily hops and sulphur. Flavours are dry, sweet and buttery. Quite fruity and bitter. Pretty decent. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2005

Amber beer with a frothy head. The aroma is light and strongly sulphur with a burn’t element, and the flavour is light with a hopped finish. Overall a pleasantly hopped beer.
