Colour: Clear auburn with a small, fluffy head. *** Nose: Malty/caramel aroma with hints of hops and raisins. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, not watery. Soft carbonation. *** Taste: Strong malty opening with some raisins, toffee notes, balanced by hop freshness and a hint of lemon. Same mix continues, maybe with a touch of chocolate. Dry, medium bitter finish with bitter hops. After taste equally malty and hoppy, of medium length. *** Impressions: Very good premium bitter with strong caramel notes and good balance. Impressively full-bodied for the ABV. Solid effort!

Personally, I am biased to all beers made by Hobson since my wife is from the local town there. Old Henry is my favorite of all their beers. It's an auburn colored ale that is malty in flavor. Served at room temperature, the finish of this beer is absolutely smooth! Just a small bit of hops aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bursztynowe, zmętnione. Piana kremowa, drobna. W aromacie słody z wyraźną nuta chmielowa. Chmiel nie jest nowofalowy, ale wyraźny. W smaku lekko kwaskowe, plus nuta kojarząca się z amber ale. W posmaku wyraźny karmel. Całość dość pełna, przyjemna. Jak na bittera całkiem przyjemne.

Backlog. From bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 08.04.13. Pale copper, almost clear. Some bitterness, hops and dark caramel in aroma. Well-balanced taste, with chocolate malt, caramel and refreshing hops. Quite carbonated for an English ale. Good drinkability.

BlazerT (745) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Deep amber with big, light white, semi-densed head. Moderate head retention, medicore lacing. The malty (caramel, dough) aroma, with pretty noticable medium nuts and light dark fruits aroma. Taste is light bitter, caramel, berries, earthy and some light milk chocolate. Ligh to medium body, medium carbonation. Notthe best ESB Ive drank.
