BeardedAvenger (446) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2016
Cask at Swan Inn, Farnborough. 07/08/16. Not a very strong aroma, sweet, sugary. Deep amber. Really nice thick white head. Smooth mouthfeel. A medium bitterness then kicks in and flows through to the aftertaste. Grapefruit and caramel. A good pint.

Bottle on holiday in Lyme Regis. Clear amber beer, good white head. Palate is light and fairly dry. Good fine carbonation. Semi sweet malts, thin, some caramel, mildly tangy. Little dried fruits. Dry finish. A light sweetish creamy linger. Okay.

Gary (1932) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2015
500ml; in a shaker pint . Low Boost ESB tim . Spicy hop nose that showcases marmalade ..cake like rich malts , soil and earth covered caramel. Deep orange with a good rocky foamed head . Lots of malty accents , quit dry and refreshing . notes of caramel, bread , spicy citrusy hops , dried sultana finish. A pretty respectable bottled ESB.

wheresthepath (2208) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
Cask at Back of Beyond, Reading. Deep amber with a small off-white head. Caramel and butterscotch and too much diacetyl. A little fruitiness and a decent earthy bitterness doesn?t make up for the rest. Not great.
