12floz can, COD: 03.21.2017, paid $32 (normally $36) as part of a case of beer from brew HQ, website indicates an IBU of 32, poured contents into a pint glass. Good rich almond and caramel aroma exudes from the medium-dark amber body. Tastes like lightly toasted biscuits The brewer indicates this beer is not pigeon holed to a particular style, and it is thoroughly an amalgamation of sessionable English styles. Tastes better from the can than experienced on draft in the past as a side note. TylerGreenDC (1179) - - FEB 4, 2017
Draft. Classic toffee and licorice aroma. Flavor is full-bodied, lots of Scotchy toffee some grapefruit sweetness and then a bread crust finish. Outstanding. RobertDale (7133) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 13, 2016

A cloudy, brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma has bread and caramel with faint hops. It has a medium body with creamy texture and soft carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a semi-dry finish.

Draft in old town at Paradiso brown pour, fairly muted hopscand malts. Ok unspectacular. . phaleslu (11074) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2015
On cask at the Side Project Cellar, served in a nonic glass. Pours a clear reddish amber wth a centimeter or so of off-white head that forms a small, lasting cap. Great slate of malts in here - caramel, toast, amber, cereal - with leafy and earthy hops to balance things out. But it’s really all about the malts here, which is fine. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Right on the money. Could sip this all damn day. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2015

Sampled from the tap at GTMW 2015. Pours a near clear deep amber with a slight orange hue and a bubbly tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma is very bread and biscuit forward with a sweetness underlying. Flavor has a good amount of bread and biscuit notes with a bit of sweetness in the finish.

On tap. Served a dark amber color with a fair head and some lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, bit of malt sweetness and bread. Taste of dark fruit, malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, quite smooth with a clean feel. Nice beer but not quite a true ESB.
