I poured from a bottle into a pint glass and noticed a pleasant aroma. Large head dissipated quickly. Once the glass was empty residue on the sides of the glass felt sticky and tasted bitter.

Spab (2389) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
355 ml can from Premier Wine and Spirits (as Red Racer ESB). Pours a lightly cloudy amber/copper colour with moderate-sized cream-coloured head. Aroma is caramel, grains and a fairly robust spicy/piney hoppiness. Flavour has a fairly rich caramel and bready maltiness with solid spicy/resiny bitterness. Average plus body. Nice one.

Masterkush7 (507) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Tasted at the edmonton craft beer festival. Some hints of piney and slight citrus hop. Biscuity malt taste with decent bitterness. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maltser85 (265) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Nice copper color on this one with a slightly off white head. Aromas of pine, slight citrus (grapefruit/orange). Caramel and bready notes. Taste is nice. Slight bitter pine up front rolls briefly into a mint/leafy note into the caramel/bready sweet malt. Finishes with a slight hop spice and citrus pop. Moderate carb, nice body for 5.6%

khays (53) - - JUN 1, 2014
Smells rich, malty, molasses, hoppy, slight hints of tropical fruit. Pours brown, clear with a thick beige head. Tastes bitter, but not in a NW way, burnt malt, bread crust, slightly sweet with piney overtones. The body is in the thicker side, lightly carbonated bitter finish. Over all a nicely crafted beer, however I think their IPA is more my style.

Hidden_Pooch (315) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Probably one of the best and most quaffable ESBís I have ever had. With a balanced taste of caramel,bread, and nuts, she went down smooth, and finished with a welcoming bitter end. I could always finished the six pack, it was so good.

pictoman (513) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Poured from 355mL can. Clear, copper with off-white head. Quite dry hoppy with mild caramel malt. Medium body.

ljthiessen (391) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle. Deep amber colour with a pillowy off-white head. Flavour is grapefruit and honey, a nice balance of bitter and sweet, malt and hops. Lots of flavour, and a full mouthfeel for the style. Hoppy for an ESB, but still stays within the style. Definitely one of the best ESBs Iíve had.

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to Matt! Pours a clear deep amber orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of pine with some resin and a grain backbone with a touch of sweetness. Flavor is a bit less hoppy but still has light resin and pine with some sweet grains and bread backing.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 On tap at The Met in New Westminster. An appealing dark copper color with a bit of light tan head and a lot of malt on the nose. A bit bitter-sweet at first, followed by sweet and earthy malts. Bitter after-taste.

Hard to believe this beer has been around since 2004 and Iím just getting around to reviewing it now! A nice one.

And Aug 19, 2014 on tap at the brewpub in Surrey. A dark amber with a bit of light coloured head. A very assertively hopped beer with strong malted backbone. Yes!
