Luppolata, rossa con una presenza nel sapore di toffee, caramello e prugna. Non male, anzi una buona birra. tombyars (1790) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in August 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear russet in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong aroma of fruity malt in the long nose. Creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. throughout. Pale malt gives a fiery digestive biscuit base with toffee and raisin fruit noted. Good smack of dusty hops present in the metallic aftertaste which is long in intensity. Finish is slightly dry and moreish with malt and currant fruit full in abundance. A robust and decent ESB, quite powerful for 5.2% and punches above its weight. Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Clear brew having red/auburn colour and light lace. Aromas of malts, caramel, some light roast note and a floral note. medium bodied brew with a hint of nuttyness and bitterness. easy, pleasing brew.

500ml bottle. Pours copper with a brown leaning and tan head that leaves a slight lace. Spicy/earthy hops on the nose with a nice caramelness. Lots of the same on the palate with a finish that seems to switch back and forth between bitter and sweet. Solid session ale. tjforeman85 (17) - ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2012

Cask-conditioned at the Wellington, Horfield 15/02/2012. Medium brown with a slight, off-white head. Berry fruit and caramel aroma with a touch of leafy hop. Flavour had more sweetness, some bready malts and a decent bitter finish. Enjoyable on a winter evening. mile (4067) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light fruitiness, light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, light grassy hoppyness. Nice fruity hoppyness - bit too sweet/too much caramel for me.
