Aroma of grapefruit, grapes, honey. Taste is bitter hops, sweet malts, honey. Red colour with white (quickly fading head). A solid ESB.

Lubiere (9438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
A orange amber ale with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with grassy British hops, some treacle, nice. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with burned sugar, nice herbal British hops, a bit piney, nice and smooth. Can.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
The beer pours a amber color with a light white fluffy head. The nose light citrus rind with hints of pine, hops and malt. The body is medium weight. The flavor starts with a malty pine followed by a floral lite hoppiness and finishes with a bitterness that lingers but not to intense. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlovakSniper (2815) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
(Une courtoisie de papat444) Un liquide à la robe orangée. Une belle mousse. Un nez de houblons fruités. Des notes florales. Une bouche encore une fois mal définie. Des houblons inintéressants. Une base maltée déficiente. Des notes âcres. Un corps maladif. Un pétillement incontrôlable. Une texture légère. Une finale sur des notes métalliques.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Canette gracieuseté de Patrick. Bière orangée voilée avec une belle mousse. Elle a une belle tenue. Les arômes sont bien agréables aux nez avec des effluves de mangue. Le nez est classique des bières Red Racer on peut lire la signature. Il y a aussi de métal. La bouche est mince, elle manque de corps. Il y a du métal et beaucoup de bulles. Il y trop d’effervescence. Encore une fois une bouche qui n’est pas à la hauteur du nez.

dresden (735) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 10, 2011
Pours a terrific amber colour with a frothy white head. Tons of grapefruit in the aroma. Mouthfeel is thick with low carb but itreally works with this flowery bitter flavour. Well done!

reebtogi (3837) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2011
355ml can pours a light brown color with a finger of white head which settles to some thin lacing. Aroma is lightly toasted malts with some grassy and citrusy hops. Taste is a pleasing hoppy bitterness balanced nicely with some malty sweetness. Body is light to medium with some pleasing carbonation on the tongue. This is quite a nice bitter, but I think it is a little overrated on this site.

garthicus (2594) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 30, 2011
On cask. Appearance: light brown with a small white head. Aroma: malt, lots of grain, a little hops, some spice and bitterness. Smells great. Flavour: perfume like hops, grains, spice, lots of tea and a bitter finish. Not a bad tipple.

Dark amber brown, rich creamy brown head. Nice toasty malt.Sparkly mouthfeel good balance. Grassy aftertaste. Medium to light body.

HeistAlmighty (1042) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
355ml can. As soon as I pop the can the grapefruit and orange nose filled my kitchen, before I could even pour. Huge foamy head on the pour, even with the glass tilted like I usually do I had to stop a couple times or it would have overflowed. Colour was a slightly cloudy orange amber. Taste was a good balance between sweet malts, citrus sourness and piney hops. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Overall, a unique ESB, but one worth trying out.
