This was an excellent English-style ESB I had cask conditioned at the downtown Great Dane. They called it "Cask ESB" and gave the abv 5.75%.

Reddish copper, it had a medium pale tan head slowly shrinking to a foamy ring and wisps, nice lace.

Aroma is caramelly, toasty barley, fruity tea, wood - a nice English character.

Taste was nice with the same elements basically as the aroma, balanced toasty-caramelly sweetness and tea-woody bitterness.

I won't be ordering this again, though it's certainly worth a try.

Will I ever find a cask ale I really love?
