This beer was so disappointing. I bought it in the can, I think it is a new format for them, but no different to the bottle. Thin, acidic taste even though the can was not old at all. I could tell by the best by coding. Unbalanced and just a "beer" in my opinion. Maybe it is better locally as a real ale, that is possible. In fact I never enjoyed any in the range, the ones I could find here. coil (172) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017

One of my all time favorite beers. Top 5 for sure. Awesome to drink while watching The Hobbit or something of epic proportion like the beer. Oiolosse (143) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 7, 2017

From old tasting notes. Deep amber red color topped by bubbly beige head. Mild toasted malt aroma. Hints at baked bread. . Bittersweet malt flavor leans toward dried fruit and spices. Very well balanced ang flavorful. Icedwarf (1840) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2017

Would have first had this years ago and just never realised I hadn’t ticked it. Full bodied, somewhat sweet malty bitter. Smooth palate. Nice, hearty ESB.
