On tap at brewery. Dark copper. fairly hoppy nose with aromas of bread. Med body with lots of carb. Very hoppy for the style, kinda wanted a bit more malt but its still quite nice.

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours translucent copper with a yellowish beige head. Aroma of light caramel, nuts and perhaps floral hop. Med body. Flavor is caramel, a little nut, and some bitterness that might be a mix of floral and earthy hop. Decent drink.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle;   Burnt orange, a bit of haze, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Dull bready biscuity aroma.   Has a slight pellet feed like character.   Very subtle, and a bit odd.   Thin bready and grainy start, very subtle ashtray.   Smooth, but light.   A very light example of the style, bordering on thin.   Just a soft grainy, bready, and malty finish, with faint biscuit.   A snoozer.

22. Pours a clear and very dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Mild sweet caramel nose, showing bread crust. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasted caramel and brown sugar mid palate. Long sweetish finish. This is a tasty sweeter brown ale, not an ESB, but well made.

VertBaconStrips (2023) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Nice to have an esb. However - this one is a bit strong on the flavours of , well, almost Scottish ales. Then again. It’s been forever since ie ha one of those so many I’m totally wrong, oh well, go shit in your hat if you disagree. A not bad drink classified who knows where. Lightly roasted malts that make me think smoke but don’t, earth, dull bitterness, strange nut -I always seem to get strange nut dumped into my mouth. Oh I ran out of beer. Nuts.

reebtogi (3842) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2013
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a light copper color with a small off-white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing behind. Mild aroma of grass and caramel with hints of citrus. Taste is a grassy and citrus blended bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. Light to medium body with average carbonation. A decent ESB, but not quite up there with the best.

22415brewery (370) - redmond, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2013
On tap at the brewery, pours a medium copper with a slight bit of off-white head, fairly clear. In the nose there are notes of medium sweet caramel, a little citrus and a little bit of mint. Base malt does not come forward and is rather one-dimensional. Flavor is primarily caramel malt and very slightly nutty with a touch of astringency. Flavor profile is relatively clean with the exception of scotch-ale-like esters. It finishes with a bit of a distraction, a hard to define aftertaste although dry. Overall the flavors are a bit muddy.

Nice golden amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super flavor and aroma. Loved this brew. Tony is going to make his mark here at Bellevue
