Poured out a nice red brown with a thick head that lasted throughout. Lacing is excellent and carbonation was very active.
Smells of earthy fuggles and roasted malts backed with some grassy grainy overtones. Very aromatic and appealing.
Taste was of roasted malts, grains, earthy hops, and some fruit esters that did not come out in the nose. Nice complex beer.
Mouthfeel in tingly and and thin. It had a nice dry finish. Correct to style. Drinkability is high. A great publican beer!

When we were in London for 10 days this was a true palate opener. I had made the progression from light beers to ambers and ales. This ESB straight from the cask at cellar temperature was my gateway beer into awesomeness.
I've since had this beer over in the states in the bottle and it isn't nearly the same beer, which was expected. The smooth balance of flavor and strong mouthfeel were mostly gone.
My palate has changed but I am sure I'd still be able to drink too many pints of this from the cask.
