FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
It pours a hazy light amber orange with a small head that looks like off white styrofoam. The nose has a bit of caramel, a slight metallic note, slight floral notes, and a slight fruitiness. The flavor has a forward pine bitterness with lots of caramel, toast, maybe a slight touch of butterscotch, and a slight fruitiness. Medium body with soft carbonation leading to a dry finish. Really nice brew! -Fish!

WVHouseofBeer (869) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2013
Very nice malty aromas consisting of caramel, toasted malt and herbs. Flavors were good but not as strong as the aromas and were a bit more hoppy. Pours a beautiful amber color with a relatively small white head that left some lacing. Mouthfeel was a bit thin with a moderatly bitter finish. Overall an excellent and hoppy ESB.
