COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep red amber colored, full-bodied, with a residual malt sweetness and hoppy flavor. This is an all-around Brew Works favorite. A great Yeungling “Lager” alternative. This british style ale contains a special blend of Cluster, Fuggle, and East Kent Golding hops.

Tasted: cask on charity night at Bethlehem Brew Works. ( proceeds went to help kitties! ). Poured copper in color with a long lasting creamy head. Very nice with the low cask carb and warmer temp. Aroma was dominated by the malt. Tasted of roasted flavors and a medium caramel. Earthy english hops come through at the end. This cask was flavored with orange. The finish was a deep orange flavor. Not too strong orange just an earthy citrus peel flavor. Very easy to drink not too heavy. Nice brew good cause.

Another from he sampler. this beer was okay. ESB seems to be a dying breed but these guys are keeping it alive. Worth a try but not worth a second glass.

Pours a clear light amber with a medium off white head. Aroma has light earthy hop notes and hints of caramel and toffee. Flavor has toasted malts and toffee with hints of earthy hops. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and earthy.

Tap in bethlehem brew works, you know you in PA when a brew bills itself as yeungling alternative. pours copper with small beige head. tastes grain, and of toasted malts, english hops, light bitterness, and slightly musky. nice carbonation and good bitterness. enjoyable

What I liked about this beer was the subtle blends of caramel malt, spice, brown sugar and hop. It was nothing mind blowing, but an easy drinking beer with some quality going on.

I’m just not feeling this one. Pours amberish from tap. Not a ton of aroma. A bit of malt on the tongue. Decent amount of carbonation. Finishes clean. Meh!

Amber with nice dense off-white head. Toasty roasty malt aroma. Nice crisp flavor. Clean malt with well balanced hop bitterness and a hint of citrus/lemon. Very easy to drink. Well done.

kramer (4943) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
On tap, Bethlehem location. Clear copper body with a minimal off-white head that ran to a thin film. Lightly grainy toasted malt with a touch of English hops on the nose. The flavor is much the same, toasty, light bitterness, and some light huskiness. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a slight coarseness on the finish. A decent ESB, one that won’t knock your socks off, but it is a decent session type beer.
