deyholla (6829) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a touch of orange and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread and grain notes with a touch of earthy grass backing. Flavor combines sweet grains with a touch of light fruits and a bit of grass.

Balanced brown. 47 IBU. Seems like it shouldn’t be bitter at all, but enough to give it just the right finish

heemer77 (5105) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Hazy reddish copper body with a long lasting khaki head. Old library books and pears are the dominant smells. Notes of ginger are present. Metallic notes are up front with oranges and oxidized old paper. I get a little bit of black tea along with hard strawberry candy in the finish. A nice ESB.

MNAle (35) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Very good attempt at a bitter, not much hop bite as expected for a bitter in the British style.Very good malt flavor, again, in the British style. This is very nice actually, and fairly true to style.

commonmac (383) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Tap pour at New Bohemia. An amber, maybe copper ale. Good lacing. Appearance is definitely deceiving. Taste is bitter and only bitter. No balance and seemingly no finesse. Taste lacks the floral hop resin and leads more into a bitter malty lack of satisfaction. Probably worth skipping.
