This beer is very tasty... taste close to the Red Racer IPA which is a very nice beer too. The medium body was crisp, clean and smooth, with a pleasantly dry finish. Drinkability was very good, bordering on excellent...
Fantastic call for the change of name from ESB to Red Ale

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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%

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.
