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.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 18, 2008
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.

Dalle (1145) - Skrping, 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 Ive 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.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle. A very drinkable ESB. This beer is a burnt amber in color, with little to no head. It has a floral aroma with a good crispness. The flavor is fairly malty. There are also hints of molasses, and a well rounded toasty character. Enjoyable.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - FEB 10, 2007
Bottled. A cloudy amber beer with a big and persistent head. Aroma of hops. The flavour is malty and toffeish, with a distinct bitterness in the end. Medium/full body. Very nice.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Bottle. Lightish amber body, minimal carbonation, what head manifests contains large, loose bubbles and does not last long. Malty nose with a hint of the Fuggles. Thin body, smooth, quaffable, mild bitterness, some Fuggles notes.

Fukito (1027) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle at Proeflokaal, march 07, shared with that dutchman, Jbrus. Very nice, bittersweet spicy aroma. Great spicy, fruity, nutty flavor with some light caramel notes. Chewy, biscuity malt and a nice filling sensation. Golden, shinny color and a nice white head. Very nice chatty ESB with a nutty touch
