Ktwse (5870) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Pours deep brown, nearly black, with flat light tan head. Aroma of nuts, malt, light butterscotch, chocolate. Taste is sweet, toasty, mild citrusy finish. Light, creamy body with average carbonation.

Scottishchris (754) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle via eebria. Murky chestnut, no head. Fruity malty nose. Medium light body, low carbonation. Fruit and nut malts. Sweet caramel and bitter finish. It's fine but not my thing.

MrTipple (7490) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Aroma: very malty, caramel, toffee, bread. Appearance: clear, dark brown, small head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: remains quite bitter, dry, grain malts, soft carbonation. Overall: OK ESB, nice aroma, palate somewhat boring. Bottle from the brewery via Eebria, Diss.

BlackHaddock (8139) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Half-pint, gravity pour out of a small plastic ’polypin’ at the brewery on 3rd Jan 2015: a free drink as I perused the shop/office shelves for the bottles I wanted to take away (12 actually). Ruby brown in colour, clear and clean: off white head with some lacing on the stemmed glass it was offered on arrival. The aroma was of caramel type malty molasses and some red berry/hedgerow fruitiness. The taste was also malty sweet and fruity with red berry to the fore. Very pleasant after a four hour drive and a beer I would happily drink again, and again.

Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
500ml bottle. Between brown and amber. Orange peel, grass, flowers, plum, chocolate, tobacco, leather. Dash of American hops I think. There’s a lot going on. Taste is more old world, and not quite as good. Plum, leather and tobacco feature. Caramel and nutty maltiness. Kind of oily feel to it. Wins points for keeping me on my toes until the last drop.

stravale (3162) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle from Eebria [181214]
Caramel ruby brown, clear, frothy off white head, slight lacing
Aroma of caramel malts, red berries, slight strawberry, soft sweet hedgerow fruits
Taste of fruity malts, as aroma, red berry malts, soft hops, light strawberry, soft flavours, nice fruits in this
Palate - Medium carb and body, bit too fizzy, soft sweet. Finish of soft sweet fruits
Overall - Nice fruity malts in this, bottle was a bit fizzy. Probably better on cask.

Stuu666 (15790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours deep amber, nose is dull toffee, taste is dry, toffee, crisp, little fizzy.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle that I picked up Summer of 2013 at the brewery. Pours a beautiful scarlet amber red. Really nice off white head. Aroma is slightly malty. Flavor falls somewhat flat. Was expecting more. Thin bodied. Decent beer.

madmitch76 (27125) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014

Clear deep red - amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and mildly crisp. Mellow tangy malts, whisper of dry cream. Dried fruits bring more tang. Light semi dry finish. Is this the same brewery the makes GKHR? Hard to believe.
