PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 26, 2008
Tap at Barcade: Copper pour topped by an off-white head. Nose has some caramel/crystal malt notes and a mild/sweet citrus note. The flavor as some soft caramel notes along with a nutty hint in the background. The finish is mildly bitter and has a hint of orangey fruitiness. A decent Bitter Ale.

evilempire (132) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
draught at Hop Devil, New York. not as hoppy as expected, this was a fairly malty, pale amber, beer, with slight caramel flavour.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Sample at PCBF 08. Pours a translucent amber with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head. Aroma of nice grainy malts, biscuit, nuts, some honey and a touch of hops. The flavor was much of the same grainy maltiness/biscuit along with a nice touch of hop flavor and bitterness. REally like the malty nose on this one.

HoppityHop (171) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Coloring, aroma, and flavor are all spot on for the style. The buttery, biscuit flavor with an underlying nutty character, and lower carbonation make this easy and enjoyable to down. Lacing on the glass was above average. A nice, well made, ESB. The best I’ve had from Climax, for sure!

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Draught: Difficult to smell because of cigarette smoke in the bar. Smelled of caramel malts and floral hops. Poured amber in color with a small, rocky, white head that lasted throughout. Very good lacing. Very hazy. Light to medium bitter flavor. Tastes of caramel malts, floral hops, blueberry, strawberry, and chocolate malts. Light to medium body. Thin, watery texture. Average carbonation Bitter, salty, malt finish.

taeagan (9) - USA - MAY 2, 2007 does not count
Just about a perfect beer. Wonderful biscuity malt aroma with a slight hint of fruity esters. Perfect body, mouthfeel, and palate cleansing bitterness for the style. Definitely deserves its place in Michael Jackson’s list of the top 500 in the world!

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
freekyp (1473) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Crystal clear amber with a tart fruity aroma blessed with a slap of toffee malt. Head was weak due to growler packaging. Very balanced with a light toasty malt character and a nice rise in hop bitterness near the swallow. Lightly bitter lingering aftertaste leaves the tongue wanting more. Nice nutty earthiness.
