From the cask at Reading Beer Festival 2016. Complex, malty and clean, and tasty and well rounded beer. Otter have gone up in my estimation. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004

Bottled. Hazy orange. Butterscotch, grass and toffee dominates. Sweet with soft maltiness, notes of honey and some licorice. Bitter finish. Solid. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottled. Deep, honey amber coloured body with soft, fine head. Malt and vanilla aroma, generously lifts of the top. Lovely vanilla and malt flavour buttressed by good bitterness and succulent mature hop backbone. Quite enjoyed this little guy. CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Not obviously bottle conditioned, I couldn’t 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.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a small head. Aromas are toffee malts with chocolate and earthy hops. Sticky sweet and fruity but not cloying. Flavour are sweet toffee and caramel malts with Autumn fruit. Soft in flavour but everything is well balanced. A good ESB. bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2006
Orange brown color, cloudy. Salty aroma with cookie dough and licorice. Malty, salty flavor with licorice, cinnamon and cookies. A pleasure to drink! jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2007
Bottled. Light herbal and bit fruity but faint aroma. Amber color, off-white head, good lace. Caramel increasing to woody/nutty, almost roasted, fruity, average body. Very nice, flavorful, refreshing. Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2007
Toffee syrup and chocolate aroma. Amber in colour with a thin white head. Nutty flavour, malt and barley with a rich smokey taste. Very nice beer, tasty and smooth to drink. Very enjoyable. pineypower (3327) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2007
I’m normally not a big fan of ESB’s.....but the guy at the beer store sold me on it. Pours out a somewhat murky dark caramel color with a tiny white head. Aroma slightly bitter, little toffee. Taste is sweet malts, toffee, caramel and slight fruit. Finish is a dry and bitter. I liked this one.
