A full body, ambrosial maltiness, and an arousing hoppy bite. This beer is not for the light beer drinker or those desiring no aftertaste.

ComradeK (1070) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2013
355ml bottle as Anderson Valley Belk’s ESB. Pours a hazy copper amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves reasonable lacing. The aroma has some savoury notes, nutty and caramel malt and faint pine hops. Pine and lime hops up front lead into savoury nutty malt in the mid-palate. A savoury flavour persists into the finish, to be joined by caramel malt. A passable if not spectacular bitter.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
Pour is hazy oramge with no head, no bubbles, completly flat. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, sweet malts. Taste has citrusy and grassy hops, caramel, a bit sweet. Low-medium body. Could have been good but this one is a drain-pour

Nische (1191) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2013
A hazy, amber-orange pour with a thin white head. The aroma has floral and grassy hops mixed with some light, bready malt. The light body has an oily texture with soft carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a very dry finish.

GnarlyGnome (803) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle: pours a dark orangish golden color with a light tan head. Malty aroma of sweet grains. The flavor is caramely with a slight bitterness. Nice, solid mouthfeel. Enjoyed this one.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2013
No bottling information.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a tall light tan head that has good retention, settling into a sparse coating.
Aroma: The aroma is malty with caramel and brown sugar notes with an herbal tea like hop aroma along with some fig aromas.
Taste: Malty with lots of caramel, notable most through the mid-taste through to the finish. Perhaps a touch too much. The hoppiness is mild, providing a slightly floral and herbal quality to the flavor.
Palate: Light in carbonation, but full bodied.
Overall: This is a decent beer and I could certainly drink it, but it’s not very enjoyable by the end.
