adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Dark red orange appearance with a frothy cream orange head. Slightly hoppy aroma with amber malts. Body has a floral hoppy taste with a medium deep amber maltiness. A little hoppier than a typical ESB with an amber malty and slightly hoppy aftertaste. A little off but not bad.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Draft 6 oz’er at the brewpub: Nicely carbonated with a rubbery head. Big, big aroma ... but it’s musty and dirty-sockish. This drinks with a tepid, earthy mossiness that made it the most disappointing of Backcountry’s beers.
