Newmans Last Lion of Britain

Another from the Caerphilly based brewery Newmans, which I've reviewed here before and mused upon here also.

Its a 330ml bottle, and I suppose comes into the ESB category as its 5%, nice label too.

You can see the carbonation in the photo, and the red brown colouring.
It had an aroma of sweetness, sugar sweetness but also a malty caramel sweetness. Is that right? perhaps not, but sweet full stop.
Sweet but dry, medium body, the alcohol comes through, caramel again in buckets, and a spicy bitterness resides.

Fairly standard ESB, nothing exciting though.
