Pours a copper hue with a two finger creamy head and lacing here and there,the smell is very malt dominated with aromas of caramel,burnt toffee,fruit cake and raisins,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and has tastes similar to smell with hints predominately of caramel,sticky toffee,caramelized figs,candy and the finish nice and bitter to round it out and overall a nice example of the style and would buy again cheers.

A: Pour is hazy copper with a rather large tan compact, creamy head. Slow dissipation leaves nice lacings.

S: Roasted sweet caramell malt. Lots of citric fruityness. Butter. Smells very English.

T: Tastes English; fruity - apples and oranges. Roasted malt, caramell, sweet. A burnt vibe in the back. Bitter hops.

M: Aftertaste is short, sweet but also bitter. Body is medium while carbontion is mild to medium. Buttery, creamy and smooth.

O: A nice ESB, but it doesn't stand out in any way.

The colour is amber (20 EBC), the liquid is clear. The high airy head is a bit yellowish; it sinks slowly leaving lots of thick lacing.

The smell is very British: Sweet malty flavours with some cookies and biscuits. Mild flavours of dried fruits, fresh flowers and a hint of butterscotch. Some bitterness with a hint of floor polish.

The taste is smooth and balanced. Sweet biscuit-y flavours, dry apricots and green bananas. Very mild flowery bitter flavours. Medium body. The aftertaste is as smooth with a dry, almost astringent mild bitterness and some flowery sweet note. The finish is smooth with a distant astringent flavour.

The carbonation is mild, the small bubbles fresh. The liquid is semi-smooth.

An OK ESB. Shame about the astringent notes in the aftertaste.

The beer is clear deep amber, has a huge off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing and good curtains.

Smelling of malt and roasted bread, bitter oranges and hay.

Starting with sweet brown bread brown sugar, red apples, pear and bitter oranges, nettles and slightly of butter.

Medium low carbonation, soft, slightly sticky, a large body, a dry finish.

Well composed and balanced, good sipping qualities.
