Cask handpump at The Old Spring, Cambridge. Dark brown with a short head, slow to clear. Toffee and some biscuit malts in the scent. Some carbonation. Starts sweet then quite bitter. Dry. Smoked nuts in the mouth. Gary (2035) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2010
CASK . An old man beer ,tepid, with cobwebs and a stale vibe, despite it being alive cause its cask condtioned. The type of ale Captain Mainwaring from ’Dad’s Army’ would drink. the maltiness feels roasted...with either caramel or toffee and a treacly , rich profile.burnt notes ,with chewey chocolate . . A beer for grandpha .

Noted this as Bomber Country. Cask at the Hopbine in Cambridge. Dark reddish brown color with a decent head. Sort of a cross between a brown and an ESB. Very flavorful. Very good. I can still recall holding the glass. Note from 10/14/2004. evilsoc (191) - WALES - SEP 8, 2008
Cask at the Steam Railway, Swindon. Amber red. Sour malts, chocolate with woody puckering bitterness. Good balance! Not short on flavour in my opinion. berkshirejohn (6588) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. A rather good bitter. Copper with a reddish tint, and a dense cream head; powerful aroma of roasted malts, slightly smoky; deppely bitter flavour with thick treacly malts; and a dry and bitter finish. Everything an ESB should be. FatPhil (16647) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 Cask (Clarendon Arms, Cambridge)
Reddish, thin head. Sweet malty aroma, hints of dark berries. Loads of malt in the taste, thick and rich - and with enough nuttiness to keep the taste buds firing. Great ESB.
