Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in January 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale mahogany in colour with a thin creamy buff head. Very slight note of warm yeasty bread but very short on the nose. Cracking creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a full maltloaf base with plump juicy raisin fruit present. Citric hop tang noted in the fruity resiny aftertaste. Finish is dry and malty with woody vinous notes and grapefruit pith in this full bodied ESB. Worth seeking out.
Cask @ Up Steps Inn, Oldham. Copper with a creamy head. Has a smooth malty-sugary-sweetness. downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017

Cask at the Falcon, HW, 30/03/17.
Amber to copper with a decent beige covering.
Nose is brown bread, toffee, biscuit, light fruit esters, a touch thin.
Taste comprises biscuit, bread, toffee, straw, brown sugar, a trace of diacetyl me thinks.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying close with a light chemical rinse and bittering effect.
Not great. Lore (2991) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 30, 2017
Clear amber colour, medium sized slightly beige-ish creamy off-white head; aroma of some bread, caramel and minimal floral notes; taste of malty sweetness and toasted bitterness with a quite strange, but still good dried cherry-dark chocolate combo; if it was not that watery as it is, it could be a really good ale wheresthepath (2424) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Amber with a negligible off-white head. Diacetyl and dust overlay too-sweet toffee malt. A dirty, dirty beer.
