Sjohnh (1012) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
That’s OK. Good balance of toffee malt and fruity English hops. Dark colour with plenty of head. Body is light and fades at the end.

BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
19th June 2016: half-pint in my local Wetherspoons. Looked good, rich amber bodied with a strong toffee aroma and taste, really liked it: my sweet tooth loving the flavour.

The_Osprey (9157) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 Cask HP at The Kings Tun, Kingston. As ’Elgoods Greyhound Strong Bitter’. Dark amber orange, slight haze, still, small bubbly beige head. Aroma is crusty bread, tiger bread, dried apple. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is bready sweet, assertive earthy bitterness, resinous, red apple. A solid ESB. Very drinkable and characterful.

3.5
Erzengel (9504) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2016
On cask in London. Smooth malty beginning. Round and malty with a nice bitter-ale aroma over the malty part. Smooth and fresh in the mainpart, smooth, mild malty and moderate bitter in the aftertaste.

3.3
theprof (1246) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Cask. Pours chestnut brown with white lace top. Some toffee malt and stewed fruit on the nose. Tastes more bitter and hoppy than the scent suggests. More roasted cereal notes than raisin on the tongue to my mind. But given that the last three beers I rated were bland and forgettable, this is an improvement. It’s a medium bodied bitter with a strong lasting bitterness on the palate and there’s a place for that. Although it’s shrinking.

3.4
evergreen0199 (3492) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Cask at The Metropolitan (W’Spoons), Baker Street, London. A dark red/brown coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Malty, caramel, fruity aroma. Tastes similar, malty, fruity, caramel. Rather pleasant.

Don2711 (494) - - MAY 14, 2014
UPDATED: APR 21, 2017 Fine strong bitter. Nice caramel flavours good bite to it. Lovely ruby appearance.Will definitely have a full pint next time and re rate. Second tasting a bit of chemical taste. Disappointing.Third pint still chemical taste 2 years later. Very disappointing
