(Bottle): Pours a clear amber, small slightly off-white head. Malty, caramel and hop aroma. A very well balanced taste. Lots of crisp hoppiness and sweet malt. Bread, caramel and citrus notes thrown in for good measure. Not too bad!

jmgreenuk (9559) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 26, 2012
Poured a clear amber with a thick white head and medium carbonation. The aroma is weak, but with hints of malt and hops. The flavour is bitter, malty and refreshingly hopped. It’s a classic, quality English ESB.

3.8
Oakes (17846) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Pleasing orangey-amber colour. The aroma is spicy, marmaladey, with a warming fresh bread character. Medium body, toasty malts with a hint of biscuit. The hops are gentle, well-integrated and the marmaladey Bramling Cross note is a breath of fresh English air. Tasty stuff.
