Ruddy brown...tan head...the aroma stings my nostrils a bit...malty vinegar aroma...roasted cracker jack flavor...watery and unbalanced...finish is putrid, as if these brewers left the malts on the fire too long, try again

puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2008
This beer is spot on! It pours a dark ruddy/cloudy copper colour and has a finger and a half or so of head which disippates quickly. Fruity, Appley aroma...This beer is loaded with english Fuggles hops which marries nicely with caramelly, toffee flavored malts. I believe I can taste a hint of complex Maris Otter malts. This brewer knew what he was up to - this beer is extremely well balanced. Overall taste is wonderful in this medium bodied, low to moderately carbonated, smooth, creamy drinking beer. This beer would pair wonderfully with an array of fine foods - or just by itself

Cask. Clear copper with a good-sized head. Sweet citrus scent. Quite sweet in the mouth but also watery. Some carbonation. Very malty with mown grass and roasted nuts. Not bad.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Pours a murky copper body with a small beige head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is malty toffee, herbal hops and a hint of ripe pears. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Taste is well balanced with toffee, herbal hops bitterness, fruity overripe red apples, pear skins, and a hint of mineral. A prototypical English ESB.

Bottle pours coppery amber with light beige full head that laces. Aroma is rich, caramel,dark fruit maybe a hint of yeast. Fruity sweet start with a counterbalance light bitterness to finish and linger. Some pleasant alcohol warmth . Full palate. Medium carbonation. A good beer.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburys. Not obviously bottle conditioned, I couldnt see sediment, but no obvious pasteurisation notes either. Dark amberwith dissipating head. Aroma of caramel, orangey hop, liquorice. Good body, complex finish with hop and liquopricy, choclatey malt.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - FEB 9, 2009
Taste 2/9 bottle. Looks: Dark cloudy tea colored body with a thin tan head. Aroma: Sweet malt (almost syrup) with some yeast must in the background. Taste: Very malt heavy, a little hops coming through in the finish. Yeast and hops are in the background for the style.
