Draught at salhojankadun pub. Clear brown color, some white head. Sweet malty aroma. Balanced soft mouthfeel, sugar, malty body, sweetness. Balanced taste, quite sweet, low co2. Soft and nice.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Rich brown ale, with burnt toffee aroma. Smooth rich fruity taste that goes well with a full English Breakfast

Cask (5.2%), quarterly ale, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow on 29 Jul 2017, fruity, toffee aroma, orange, amber with a thin bubbly off-white head with immaculate film of fine lacing, fruity, caramel, toffee flavour, sweet, gentle fizz, malty aftertaste.

The_Osprey (8216) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Exmoor Stag, 5.2%. Surprisingly few rates for a well established beer. Pours a dark orange brown, translucent with a foamy light brown head. Aroma is raisin and dates. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is quite robust with lots of dense bread and resin, fruitcake, dark wood, carpet, mixed spice. Breathy close. A grower. By the end of my half I’d decided that this is actually a pretty solid full flavoured ESB. (6-4-6-4-14=3.4)

Smithld1 (291) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Pint in wetherspoons. Quite a nice drop. Creamy and malty. Better bitters available but no complaints.

GuideDogSaint (1588) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 28, 2017
Draught at the Edward Rayne, Raynes Park. Pours clear mahogany with a beige head. Aroma of malt and dried fruit. Fruity taste. Sweet finish.

Don2711 (481) - - JUN 26, 2017
Caramel and toffee. Maple syrup appearance. Nice hoppiness. All in all quiet acceptable. Will try again.

Towey1989 (2939) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2017
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of fruit, some caramel, subtle orange and slight spicy hops. Taste of fruit, some caramel, slight saparilla and similar spices plus subtle orange. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, spicy bitterness in the finish. A spicy ESB with fruity esters and malty base. Solid.

Wezzielad (34) - Ilkley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2017
On cask at Peter Kavanaghs, Liverpool. Appearance is like Maple Syrup. Smell is fruit- Orange and Banana. The taste is sweet, tangy and you can taste a bit of hops. Initially there was a head that was a couple centimetres which died off after a fair while. The residue of the foam stuck to the glass the whole time whilst the beer was drunk. Solid pint.

Theydon_Bois (19789) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2016
Cask at the William Dampier, Yeovil, 06/01/15. Clear golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is light caramel, straw, spice, grain, biscuit crumble. Taste comprises orange, light bread, airy malt, grain, dark fruits, malt loaf. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close. Ok.
