HopsandBolts (41) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Appearance: Pours a light copper colour with a thin white head (about one finger) that dissipates quickly. Smell: Yeast, dough, malt Taste: Malt, yeast, hint of citrus and caramel on the finish Overall: This beer had all of the bread/yeast characteristics and lots of malt that I expect from an ESB. It also had an interesting finish with a bit of citrus and caramel that lasted only a few seconds. Overall, a very good ESB.

"Blonde yellowish appearance with a thick, creamy head, maybe a bit much. Has some floral and citrus aromes. Hops are nice and strong. Lacing appears thick, and lots. Mouthfeel is milky, a bit of bitterness and some malts. Smooth going down. Pretty refreshing."

dandeman (493) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Olfactif: Des accents floraux ainsi que des notes de petits bonbons et de caramel. Un nez pas très puissant, mais doux et raffiné. Visuel: Ambrée, claire, avec une belle mousse rocailleuse, de bonne persistance, mais qui présente des difficultés à s’accrocher aux parois du verre. Gustatif: L’attaque présente des notes de poivre, enrobé de caramel doux, avec une finale en douce amertume florale et terreuse, qui persiste en longue trainée sèche sur l’arrière de la langue. De petites fleurs aux accents de rose et de petites notes de jujube et de toffee constituent la palette des flaveurs avec des accents de terre en finale. D’un équilibre parfait et d’une texture bien soyeuse, cette ESB tire son charme de la douceur de ses accents et de son équilibre des saveurs.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2013
Rating #802 . Pours a dark amber with a foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly, medium-strong retention. Aroma is mild toasted malt, hints of wildflowers. Hop presence is significant, giving the bitter character, but the breadiness of the malt is what makes this beer. Creamy mouthfeel Well balanced, medium bodied ale that is easy to drink. Cheers.

BiereLuc (869) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Bière cuivrée-orangée, légèrement voilée, qui mousse avec modération. Le nez laisse poindre un peu de caramel et – le temps d’un court instant – de houblon. En bouche, une douce danse mi-sucrée mi-amère s’étale de la langue au palais. Le dosage et l’équilibre de cette bière sont ses deux plus grandes qualités elles suffisent amplement à rendre ce produit exemplaire.

simardsam (122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Cuivrée et voilée, avec un petit collet de mousse de couleur crème. Nez de malt et de caramel. Goût herbeux, floral et de malt. L’amertume est plutôt présente tout au long, mais se fait surtout sentir à la fin.
