500ml bottle. An easy drinking solid ESB, there is nothing bad about it but nothing to make it stand out from the crowd. It pours light amber with a very thin head. The taste is bitter, slightly sweet at the back end and refreshing to drink. I think it would go well with a bbq food on a hot day.
Bottle from B&M Team Valley, Gateshead. Bright golden coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a sweet peach and tropical fruity flavour followed by earthy notes on the sweet herbal finish. Pretty good. fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2017

500mL can, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of herbal and vegetal notes, feet, and bready malt. Flavour is very malty, with lots of Britsh malt, bready notes and some vegetal character. Nothing overly offensive here, but it’s dull and cheap.

Can. Clear amber pour with a dense white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and a little metallic, simple and not very good. Taste is about the same, a little cloying, caramel and a coppery metallic taste, very plan, nothing really going on, and not a good balance either. gripweed57 (2871) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2017
From old tasting notes. Bright brassy gold color. Rocky beige head. Soft malty nose. Crisp bittersweet malt flavor. Nice spicy hop finish. Good balance and flavor.
