slowrunner77 (9630) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 28, 2014
medium brownish pour. Quite bitter in flavor for the style, otherwise pretty classic ESB. Lightly nutty and malty with enough hop flavor to balance. A little extra bite in the finish."

Dogbrick (11172) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. Pours a clear copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and ripe fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, malt and red fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Constant bubbles rising to the top of the glass. Smell is mild and balanced. The taste is mild and balanced without being bland. Slightly hoppy, but not overly so. An excellent beer for any beer drinker.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Slight carmel tones. Amber hued with a thin head. Good deal of sweet and spicy hops. Finishes very dry. Carmel malt nicely supports bitterness. Thin and easily drinkable. High on hop flavor for the style, but I prefer it this way. Very sessionable.
