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 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.

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.

pineypower (3173) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Im normally not a big fan of ESBs.....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.
