A brown beer with a very nice head. It has a slight fruity aroma. The flavor is very pleasant smooth and complex with a nice malt sweetness and an OK bitterness. cgarvieuk (26422) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2012

Sampled cask conditioned. Chestnut brown. Ashy aroma. Starts fruity with hints of figs, but finishes off dry and slighlty salty. A nice and rather complex cask ale.

Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours clear, ruby-golden-brown with a small, foamy white head. Nose has some semi-ripened fruits, some berries and semi-dark fruits, light tang, hints of dry leather. Light sweet flavor with plenty of dried fruits, maybe cherries and berries, some light smokey malts (which seem a bit out of place), mild wood, leather, dirt and leaves. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweetness in the finish with some leathery fruits, dirty and leafy hops, faint toasted grass, and toasty bread. It’s alright overall. Nothing super about it.

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.
