The best bottled beer I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. TheAleMale (34) - Worcester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2016
Bottled but more like a pumped need vwhen in the glass.
A very full dark and cloudy ale.
Bottle from Bransford services. Quite bitter, very English as usual from Teme Valley. Surprisingly hoppy. Nice fruity nose. Overall a pleasant dark brew.

Appearance - deep amber and cloudy. Nice head.
Nose - orange and biscuits. It culminates in a kinda marmalade on toast.
Taste - dry wholemeal bread. Then bitter orange.
Palate - medium bodied with a dry crunchy texture that extends into the finish.
Overall - there’s aroma is lovely, the taste a bit drier and overall the palate is balanced if slightly astringent on the end. Overall a decent ESB.
decent enough appearance and aroma. classicly English Ale. Seems to be unbalanced in that there is too much malt for the rest of the brew. Mr_Pink_152 (5649) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014

Dark amber, hazy, frothy fluffy white head, good lacing
Aroma of soft fruits, marmalade orange, soft yeast, caramel, good subtle aroma
Taste of caramel, marmalade malts, soft orange, light toffee, subtle flavour but tastes very good, nice spicy bit peppery hops, some yeast, quite a complex flavour
Palate - Soft carb. medium body, smooth, soft sweet, good mouthfeel. Finish is a bit dry, good spicy bitter tail
Overall - Very good tasting bitter, good use of English hops, no twigs. Surprised by this one.

Clear amber beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Light malts, mild and unsweet dark toffee turning to a smoother sweeter caramel. Floral bitter hops and dried fruits. Semi dry finish. Medium bitter linger. Not bad.
Bottle from Simply Fresh Boldmere; clear teak pour with a thin creamy magnolia head, malt and dark fruit aroma, taste has malt, some stewed plums, some zest, raisins, burnt toffee, light bitter ok.
