Draught. Clear coppery brown, good thick white head. Slightly tangy aroma, maybe apples. Creamy body with medium carbonation. Fairly tangy fruity foretaste with finish that is moderately bitter and has a malty marmitey lingering taste. Nice beer.

Cask, GBBF 07. Dark chestnut, creamy head. Nose is some floral hops, something not too pleasant. Mouth is some fruity sweet malt, some caramel malt. Bit over-sweet and dark fruity. ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JUN 12, 2007

Tasty little English style ale. Cloudy brownish orange with the tiniest of heads. Caramel malt aroma with a smooth, mild taste. Malty and slightly smoky sweetness. Full bodied. Nice. cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2009
River water brown body, reddish tint along the edges. Diminishing, foamy head and little to no lacing. Medium bodied with a surprisingly hot aftertaste. Nice bitterness although the beer starts out sweet. Strong toffee and tobacco aromas with some prunes mixed in. Raisin and toffee taste with a peaty flavor. Bitterness is there, but little hop flavor. Applesauce aftertaste proves interesting. Martin243 (1156) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Pint at the Tilley Stone in an English pint/ Clear dark amber with a creamy off white head. Certainly good looking. Muted toffee aroma, leaning towards a milky fudge. I’m going to stick with "muted" as far as flavour is concerned. Some red =currant, raisin and toffee, but nothing assertive or taste bud catching. Alcohol well disguised. Drank more like an old fashioned premium bitter. Not great, but not bad. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - APR 22, 2005
Cask, the Cockney Pub. Dark amber-red with a solid head. Malty, fruity with notes of nuts and chcolate, dry finish. Medium-full body. Perhaps the best ESB I’ve had!? DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2008
1 pt. bottle. Clear medium brown with a very spare off white head, yet surprisingly sticky lace. Fruity, brown sugar aroma, some faint vanilla. Smooth, medium body, rich mouthfeel, very light carbonation. Good balance between the sweet malt flavors and spicy bitterness. Finishes fairly dry with a lingering gently bitterness.
