Cask @ Half Moon, Stepney. Amber-red in colour with a small head. Strong with a sweet fruit aroma with some in its taste, although bitter in style. tombyars (1749) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in November 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear mahogany in colour with a thin creamy white head. Robust malt present in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a maltloaf base with notes of soft toffee and juicy raisins. Musty earthy flavour to the hop resins which combines well with the robust malt, giving a balanced bitter bite to the short aftertaste. Finish is malty with sweet date fruit present in the palate. This is a decent session ESB and well recommended.
