jjsint (2470) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Cask at the Bedford Arms, Bedford. Copper/amber, slightly hazy with a bit of natural head. Aroma of caramel, crystal malt, raisins.A sweet fruit/malt taste is met with an astringent bitter. The bitter seems to win. Nice but the balance is a bit off. Palette is quite thin for an ESB. Aftertaste is bitter bordering on acrid. I like this beer one minute, and dislike it the next. While I must applaud its tenacity, its unbalanced and unsure of itself. A good enough drink but one is enough.

imdownthepub (13556) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with slight head. There was a heavy caramel sweetness from the start with this, heavyish and just a little overwhelming. The hops never really came through.

Bottle at Chrisos. Fruity, wild aroma, funk. This is off. Sour, dry, yeasty, it almost works and becomes Orval, but not quite.
