Bottle. Nice, fruity aroma. Greyish copper colour. Fruity flavour with a nice bitterness. Mild aromatic hoppiness and dusty aftertaste.

A pretty good ESB, especially from a can. Nice flavor, color and cask-like carbonation!

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Nitro can - Pours a nice hazy golden orange color. Aromas of nice honey/grapefruit hops. Flavor starts honey malty and then a nice crisp bitter finish.

Red/orange clear with lasting white head. Smells of honey with small hint of hops. Medium bitterness, tastes little of honey, small after-bitterness. Low carb, thin. Not my kind of ale... just too boring.

mjg74 (3140) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Canned. Pours a reddish/orange sort of a color. Aroma is sweet and malty. Slighty fruity and nutty. Sweet malty flavor. Finish is rather bitter. Hints of wine in the finish. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Easy drinker.

3.5
UnsofistaCat (241) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Nitro-perfect. Nitro-smooth. Slight metal, like in all of these canned widget things. Actually, kind of had taste.....malty a little sweet. The second one starts to get a little watery. These pub drafts always hit the spot when in the right mood. Not bad.

3.1
Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours copper in color. Smells sweet, malty. Fluffy white head, well balanced with a hoppy start and a malty finish. Carmel and sugar flavors are dominant. Hey ABBOT!

3.2
DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
Deep amber, clear, moderate head. Caramel and faint fruit aromas. Sweet caramel malt palate with a non-specific fruity element that you lose as you get further into the beer. Quite good.

3.2
iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 13, 2005
440mL can. Smells of caramel and toffee malts, with a little bit of raisins. Pours a clear copper with small white head. tastes of some dark fruit (plum and raisin) and bready malts with a moderately bitter finish. Wasn’t too bad of a brew.

3.2
pivnizub (10728) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2005
Bottle: Amber coloured, thin foamy off-white layer; malty, fruity (raisins) nose with traces of molasses, a tinge of hops,too; moderate bitter-sweet (malty) flavour; long bitter-malty-fruity (liquorice) finish. Pleasant and quite well rounded.
