pintbypint (2708) - Edmonton, Alberta, - SEP 25, 2012
500ml brown bottle. 5% abv on label. Golden and clear in the glass. White head, fairly creamy foam and decent lacework. Nose has citrusy orangey hops with some malt sweetness. Taste has a pretty solid malt character, fruity up front, notes of orange and some grapefruit. Some bitterness lingers, a bit of grass and fairly big grapefruity/citrus hops in the aftertaste. Light body, soft mouthfeel. A nice beer, more hops that expected. .

RyanK (227) - Rhode Island, USA - OCT 7, 2014
1.9 fl oz bottle pours hazy orange showing light sediment and plenty carbonation. Aroma is a mix of citrus/grapefruit hops and a champagne/cider like aroma from the yeast. Taste follows, light on tongue with plenty carbonation. Light body and crisp carbonation almost like a cider, light fruity hop characteristics and no malt. Leaves your palate imparting no memory of the experience, quite boring.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a small white head. Sweet, fruity, hoppy aroma with notes of straw. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and citrus with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

PorterPounder (5713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 500 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a sticky white head and nice lacing. Aroma has a hint of peppermint, a light touch of pine. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some faint light citrus bitter notes, a touch of peppermint, a touch of pear frutiness. Nice smooth, clean mouthfeel. Solid ESB. Very sessionable.

Strykzone (5077) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pint bottle. Hazy golden and a white head. A fruity and malty aroma. This is a little different from other ESBs I have had. Nice tropical fruit that is somehow candied and sulfury bitter hops. Earth and dryness. Yeast and floral notes come late and the finish is a bit medicinal. A decent brew.

teddybeer (2353) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 30, 2014
Golden color with a white head with good retention. Aroma has notes of citrus and fresh hops. Flavor is slightly bittery, notes of citrus and slightly malty with resins hints. The final has a light bitterness with short duration.

ContemplateBeer (1585) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Aroma: Light caramel and a little cider; some juicy citrus notes, lemon, lightly spiced. Appearance: Hazy royal gold with a a solid white head that fades into a sticky, bubbly skin. Flavor: Lemon/citrusy notes up front with pleasant caramel more prevalent toward the finish; lingering herbal bitterness finishes things out. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: I enjoyed this; just enough abstraction from the English tradition to make things interesting.
