yngwie (16990) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle. Copper, a bit unclear body with a beige head. Biscuity, malty nose with a nice hoppiness and some sweetish notes. Quite malty flavor, some sweetness, and a nice hoppiness to balance it. Medium to full body. A really nice Otter. (070608)

FatPhil (15826) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Bottle. Rich red, little to no head. Slightly chocolatey malty aroma. Taste matches - slightly yeasty hint but then theres a great chocolatey malt blast. Long bitter finish too. Good strong ale.

bhensonb (14986) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Aroma of malt and fruit. Amber color with a great tan head. It persists. Flavor is fruit and malt. Malt persists. This reminds me more of an American brown than an English ESB. Finish is malt, tempered by bitter.

imdownthepub (14353) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Phoenix Wines, Swanage, Dorset. Murky brown with slight head. Not the best looking beer ever, but the flavour overcomes the looks, just. Fruity malts with an apple, plum character, a touch of coffee ground and a general sweetness carrying in to a powdery hop. Reasonable.

500ml Bottle from Jungle Jims. Poured hazy dark amber with medium white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium aroma of fruity, malt and yeast. Medium body. Good flavor of sweet malt and medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Above average bitter.
