COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust best bitter for the hop lovers. A generous helping of chinook hops makes this breezy brew a draft to remember.

fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2008
Draught at the brewpub, 30 IBU
Hazy amber color; creamy head. The aroma shows some English style hops and yeast, and subtle fruity hops. It has a very good flavor of caramel, toffee, hops; sweetish and quite fruity too. Balanced, Very good.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2008
Hand pumped cask at the brewpub in Whistler. Hazy orange, dense orange-tinted tan head. Caramel and earthy hop aroma. The palate delivers the same, along with a subtle apricot fruitiness and a moderately bitter finish. Low carbonation. A terrific ESB-- took home a growler!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2007
Caramel, toffee and toasty malts in the nose with some floral hop character and fruity esters. Hazy burnished copper coloured body is topped by a dense, fine bubbled, off white head that coats the glass. Caramel malts are well balanced by floral and citrus hops that provide a moderate level of bitterness. Medium light body with subdued but entirely appropriate soft bubbled carbonation. Sampled on cash at Dix (Caskival 2007).

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2006
Copper colour with minimal off white head. Hoppy and spicy aroma with a tad of toffee. Nicely balanced with some hops and malts with a light oak. Bitter on the finish.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2005
2nd annual Vancouver Caskival. Thin suspended yeasty chunks in a nice copper coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit spicy, a touch of berry fruitiness and light caramel malt. Well-balanced flavour, light malt along with earthy and woody hops. Light spiciness as well. A bit of lingering bitterness. Very earthy finish. Nice bitter.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Sampled some of this in Whistler at the brewpub - the best of tasting: Unfiltered, great hop presence, fresh.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2004
Light amber in color with a sweet malty honeyish aroma. Some sweet malty honeyish flavours accompanied by some hoppyness and a bitter aftertaste.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2003
Unusual at best. It started off as though it was going to be bitter, but then decided to really just wallow in some sort of citutrusy funk for a while, never really producing much of any coherent flavors. Not too bitter, a sort of malty/muskyiness in the citrus held it back off the tongue. Like I said, unusual.

Despite some of the other ratings of this beer, I did not find it to be the least bit hoppy. It utterly failed to challenge me and was merely a mildly malty brew. Not that it was bad, but I had hoped for a tad more character.
