Usual bitter aroma of fruity caramel. Murky orange tan look to it. Flavor is nutty caramel and a bit of non-bitter citrus. Creamy body that’s on the thin side. Pretty average stuff, probably better from a cask. vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 Ambrée, une petite mousse et de carbonation moyenne. Malté et légérement amer. Une bonne bière corsé et terreux. auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Golden colored pour with little to no head. Malty, hint of raisins aroma. Earthy, slightly bitter finish. Not much to this, but it wasn’t too bad. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles slowly to a thin spotty lacing. Aroma is caramel and orange zesty citrus. Taste is caramel malty sweetness balanced nicely with an orange zest and citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium body with generous carbonation leaving a good feeling on the palate. A nicely done ESB and deserves a recommendation for others to try this delight. BlackHaddock (7961) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2012
Nov 2009: Brown 50ml bottle had two months before its best by date. It was poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged vase shaped pint glass.
Clear, but not bright, the colour was golden brown with a reddish hint. An off-white head sat on top, thick at first then a thinner covering. The head did produce some good laceing as the glass emptied.
No huge aroma came from the beer, some hop and toffee maybe.
The taste was fairly bland, fizzy, mid-dry, the malts and hops are there but neither grabs the beer by the neck and sorts it out. The 5.0% ABV doesn’t feature or show in any way, the body suffers because of that, it seemed watery and lacking in the creamy, rich stakes. Drinkable, but a mild disappointment.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Thought this was very average. Had a weak fruity aroma which was all too similar in the taste. Not enjoyable but not bad in any way kschep (1707) - DENMARK - APR 2, 2012

Bottle. Very clear bronze with no carbonation. Malty medium body with a clean sharp taste, Malty aftertaste. A well bottled and quite impressive beer. kevinsenn (2310) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2012
Fruity, but weak, aroma. Clear amber (not ruby). Pleasant creamy and fruity taste, with a full body. A pretty decent English ale. Vignale (4124) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2011
En av de först öl jag provade under vår höst i England -09. Bra maltkropp och fin balans ihmulingen.
