500ml bottle BB 31 May 2017
Hazy brown with slight head.
Malt vinegar aroma.
Slight bitterness, malt palate then dry finish but this is overcome by oxidization/wet cardboard.

Bottle. Dry, light bitter, full bodied. Good, solid premium bitter, fruity with a solid malt backbone. You can’t knock it, but the cask version is better. gripweed57 (2737) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2017
From old tasting notes. Deep translucent mahogany brown color. Bubbly tan head. Toasted malt nose hints at smokiness. Sweetish, toasted malt flavor is soft on the palate, yet deliciously chewy with a spicy hop finish. Long buttery malt aftertaste. Delicious. MayumiH (1214) - - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle at home. Dark copper. Citrus flavours followed by some smooth caramel. It’s ok.

A very good ESB. Lots of malt and caramel and overall very pleasant. It was a very smooth beer and almost Belgian from the taste of the caramel. I_LUV_BEER (231) - - JUL 22, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours dark clear amber colour with a white head, medium lacing. Aroma is caramel malts and bread with some alcohol laced through. Taste is pretty much following the nose with malts, caramel, bread and some alcohol, bitter-sweet with a subtle bitter finish. Medium smooth body with medium carbonation. Surprisingly, this ale is not ruined by the presence of the alcohol notes at all! Very nice, tasty and enjoyable. Sjohnh (998) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Copper brown, no lasting head. Low carb and light palate. Toffee malt, plums and dried prunes. Seffle (464) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons Fort William 160613.
Clear dark copper with lasting white head. Malty nose and body. Very faint bitterness, too much alcohol sweetness. Unbalanced. Uninteresting.

Nice malty beer. Liberty not a hop I’m use to. Subtle mellow fruits. Nice. Similarities to great Kentish bitters such as Bishops Finger.
