Cask - Dark chestnut brown with hues of red and a fine, creamy off-white head. Nutty, malty and roasty aromas with light hints of red fruits. Rich, sweet and chocolatey flavours. Good mouthfeel, predominantly malty ESB with a dry, peppery finish, low carbonation and nice palate texture. No complaints with this one.

Tasting glass @ brewery tasting room. Looks darker than your average bitter. And there is also much more flavours than in your usual bitter. I really donít know where the taste comes from, some micro-organisms in the process? It is not hops or just malts there something else from the yeast.

Cask at Fullers, Heathrow Airport. Clear dark chestnut-mahogany color with a sticky one finger cream-colored head. Aroma is black tea, fall leaves, and English toffee. Medium sweet flavor, caramel and toffee, with a mildly bitter leafy and herbal finish. Medium body and a very smooth feel. Quite legit.

One of my favourite beers of all time. I literally go out of my way for this fantastic, full bodied, reasonably strong, caramel dark and very quaffable, behemoth of an ale.

On cask @ Fullerís pub at Heathrow Terminal 2. Smooth malty beginning. Soft and round with nice roast and smooth bitterness. Great Ale-characteristics, smooth but not too dry body. The aftertaste is smooth, malty and long. Very nice and round. Hints of nuts and caramel in the end. Nice!
