Scopey (13554) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Cask at Edinburgh Airport Spoons. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, juicy, caramel, red grape, red berry and some light floral. The taste is bitter-sweet, pine, resinous, caramel, varnish, citrus rind, dry grass and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Quite different from the bottled version. Pretty quaffable.

tombyars (1650) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) on the 6th February 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops and sweet barley sugar sticks in the pleasant aroma. Thin and resiny mouthfeel with good lacing throughout. Mixed malts gives a complex range of flavours with shortbread base mixed with sweet golden syrup and tart gooseberry fruit in the mouth. Floral hop resins add a delicate aromatic resiny aftertaste which compliments the malt well. Finish is malty with sweet tangerine notes present in the palate. This is a cracking and quirky ESB, well recommended.
