   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Cybercat (5660) - Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Comes out of the tap a beautiful, nearly opaque honey-golden - not much head, but that must be how its poured. Malty aroma has subtle fruity and horehound notes. Flavor has good malty and fruity tones and a bitter undertone - subtle, and as the description says, no bite. Finish is dry and smooth, not a lot of tingle but good body, and the fizz last. This is a beer to be sipped and savored.

stevoj (4831) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Draft at brewery. Hazy orange amber with creamy head. Light aroma of sourdough bread. Taste adds some savory notes, still very light. Cask pour makes for some velvety textures.

RedSox2004 (1853) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Cask at KSQ. Copper/amber color with a medium off-white head that retained well and left nice lacing. Caramel and toast on the nose, with a wisp of grass. Taste is mostly gentle caramel sweetness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a clean bready finish.

joeneugs (6358) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 14, 2016
On tap at Victory in Downingtown. It pours a light orange color with no head. The aroma is lightly floral and herbal. A little pale and caramel malt. The flavor is very watery and herbal. Weak bitterness. Not really exciting.

On tap at Victory Brewing. Okay. A bit warm too. Low carbonation. An average ESB in my opinion.

Could imagine drinking this 100s of years ago in England. Great sweat malt flavor. Perfect on cask.

ttutony (892) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Medium hazy brown with no head. Tried on cask at Fatheads in Pgh. Not much on the aroma. Flavors of nutty malt and a slight earthiness. Easy drinking. Good example of the style.
