On tap at Hopshead, pours a clear copper amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of English malt, bready notes and light British hopping. Flavour is along the same lines, with English malt, ready notes and light hopping. Nice use of both the English malt and hops. Very good.

On cask at Hogshead. Dark amber and clear appearance with a lingering tan head. Nice fresh and hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, mild floral notes, light malts and a touch of toffee/caramel. Smooth and creamy with a medium body. Pretty damn good for an ESB. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2014
From growler. Pour is dark ruby red with no head. Nose is faint, green apple skin, light caramel malt, and some dark berry sweetness. Taste has more malt presence, chewy feel, a bit of nuttiness and some sweet caramel. Hints of green apple skin and a touch of plum. Very light carbonation, crisp finish.
