“I could go on and on about appearance, aroma, taste, etc. But why? All you need to know is that this is a fucking explosion of raspberry deliciousness all up in your dome piece. And I need a few cases of this shit, STAT. Imminently sessionable, and somehow pushes 6% as a berliner. GET IN MAH BELLY!” -- by brystmar

“Draft - Dark malts, bourbon barrel notes, chocolate and vanilla. Jet black with a decent beige head. Tons of barrel and booze, chocolate sweetness, vanilla and a boozy sweet finish. Too much barrel.” -- by Ferris

“Bottle to glass. A cloudy amber-orange with a thick head. Very hoppy aroma with a little sweetness hiding in the background. Full mouth, medium carbonation. Hops, caramel, and grapefruit. Finishes with an alcohol tingle and hops bitter that lingers. Mmmm... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone” -- by Jaysbeers

“bottle shared by tom10101, many thanks bro! pours cloudy dark golden-orange with a small off-white cap showing minimal retention and lacing. bretts, toasted wheat, very peppery, other spices - aniseed, some fruity awkward notes, light to medium acidity, but everything is obscured by oxidation - old grass and off-fruity notes. light carbonation, light body, grassy-spicy and tart-citric finish. o-k..” -- by czar

“The pour produces a tall white head over a deep golden body with excellent clarity. The head slowly fades and just keeps a small cap tight foam till the last sip. It also makes some cool lace pattern on the glass. It has a raw grain with a straw and light floral like hop bouquet. Overall it’s light, simple and very clean. The flavor profile has the same clean grain and straw/floral hop mix with a dry biscuity finish. Its light to body is refreshing and well carbonated.” -- by generallee08

“12oz can. Pour color is darker than expected for a pale lager - a little on the orange side. Aroma indicates a nice sweetness. The flavor comes together nicely, with a really pleasant malt sweetness and just barely enough hops to clean up the finish. I was happily surprised by this one. Very sessionable, effortlessly drinkable. What American pale lager should be.” -- by shadey

“Transfer from BA review on 9-8-13- Poured from a bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear medium golden color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades almost immediately leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is mainly of a caramely sweet nature mixed with some bready and grainy smells. Along with these smells there are some light aromas of yeast as well as some grassy smells. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and sweet caramel taste. These create a base for the brew lasting throughout the flavor. As the flavors move from the initial taste, the beer sweetens as some sweeter corn flavors come to the tongue. Along with the sweet corn, so too comes some light hop tastes of a more herbal nature, leaving a sweet but still somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is a bit on the higher side. The higher carbonation is very nice for the sweeter flavors of the brew making it easy drinking and refreshing. Overall – Nothing too exceptional here. It is easy to drink, but overall a run of the mill lager.” -- by Darkmagus82

“Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, light to moderate pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with a hint of wood. Head is small, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear amber. Flavor starts slightly acidic, then finishes slightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a lively carbonation. Easy drinking American Pale Ale, with a nice hint of spice.” -- by glennmastrange

“It has a dark brown/black body with deep crimson highlights and a tall three finger beige head on top. The head is slow fading and thick. It coats the glass as I tip it to my mouth and leaves thick splotchy lace patters behind. The nose is malty sweet and roasty with caramel, toffee, bready and light toasted bread notes with a hint of chocolate. It’s sweet up front with lots of deep malty texture in a full body. Roasted grain, toasted bready notes, caramel and toffee blend with mild bitterness from the mostly hidden hops and finish a little dryer but still with some residual sugary sweetness. It has a smooth full feel with light carbonation.” -- by generallee08

“This is a very spice forward pumpkin ale but the spice flavor is pleasant at least, make for a pretty drinkable beer--better than many by the brewery, in fact. It is slightly hazed orange w/ a white head of fine bubbles that lasts as just a small ring for the duration of the glass. The nose is all warm cinnamon spice w/ something of an apple note, which I assume comes from the yeast. Flavor is even more spice forward w/ a very slight metallic note coming out as it warms. Its texture is suitably creamy for this kind of beer though but still relatively light bodied w/ mild carbonation which seem to add to things. This definitely scratches the pumpkin beer itch for those who crave such things. There are better ones out there but this is good enough I suppose.” -- by Frank

“Transfer from BA review on 9-8-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice deep amber-copper color with a huge foamy cream colored head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweet caramel and a bit of toffee as well as some fruit smells of apple and a decent roasted malt smell. Along with these sweeter and maltier aromas is a moderately strong hop smell of a citrus and floral nature. Taste – The taste begins with caramel sweetness and a nice roasted malt and biscuit taste. As the flavor advances, the taste sweetens as toffee and apple tastes come to the tongue. Along with these sweeter flavors coming to the tongue, the roasted flavors dwindle, further enhancing the sweeter flavors. While the sweeter is enhanced, it is kept in check/balance by a lightly hoppy taste of a citrus and herbal nature, in the end leaving a very pleasantly balanced bitter-sweet flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that was on the average side as well. Both were rather appropriate for the style batching both the sweet and bitter hop flavors nicely. Overall –Some roast, some sweet and some hop all melding very nicely. A rather enjoyable ESB. ” -- by Darkmagus82
