A- a deep clear ruddy brown. Slight visible carbonation. Short lived off white head dissipates quickly leaving lacing
S- rich malt primarily dark fruit (cherry, plum?).
T- great. Deep malt flavors with just a soft hop bitterness as a counter
M- smooth and soft
O- this is an excellent representation of the English bitter. A great pint.

Poured into a Samuel Smith imperial pint glass. Pours a medium to dark ruddy brown amber with a fine one finger light tan head with great retention and good lacing. Great aroma of sweet bready caramel malt, plum and dark fruit, toffee. Flavor follows with semi-sweet caramel malt, dark and dried fruit, nuts and slowly revealed earthy hops, finishing with a nice malty, mildly grassy hop finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A tasty ESB with great malt and nicely balanced hops. I don't know this Gold hop variant, but it is very subtle at first, but reveals itself nicely in the finish and there is great malt support for it. I liked this quite a bit and will buy it again. Nicely done.

500ml bottle, poured into a nonic.
A: Clear ruddy tan with a two-finger tan head that persists, leaving nice lacing.
S: Sweet bready malt with a hint of cinnamon and brown sugar.
T: Biscuity, creamy, and lightly sweet upfront, the beer falls slightly flat mid-palate, before finishing with (I kid you not) a marmalade spike, followed by a nice British bitter bite. The hops do provide a very nice aftertaste that lingers nicely.
M: Creamy and smooth, with a bit of warmth.
O: A solid bottled ESB that is almost certainly superior on cask.

Served up this lovely full-pint ale in a pub glass. The color is an intensely clear red-brown, with plenty of visible carbonation and a light tan head that fades away quickly. The nose offers up caramel malts and sweet berry notes. There is more of the same as you take that first taste, although these flavors quickly fade to a drying moderate bitterness revealing a respectable underlying hoppiness. The feel is light and refreshing, and the overall result is a decently complex, nicely enjoyable semi-bitter ale. Absolutely worth trying.

500ml bottle. Pours a reddish brown amber with a small quickly fading beige head. Aroma is of toasted caramel malt, very fruity and yeasty. Taste of toasted caramel malt, fruity, yeast, breads, some toffee flavor and mild earthy hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is sweet toasted caramel malt, yeast, fruity, bready with some earthy hops bitterness, ending has a lingering caramel malt and toffee aftertaste. Overall a good, flavorful and pleasant drinking brew.
