Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a shaker. Hazy amber with medium beige head. Aroma is light herbal hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel malt, toast, herbal hops, and light finish.

Can - pours light Amber. Malty bitter nose and taste. It’s pretty good for a style I don’t care for.

Can, thanks to Hopscotch. Amber pour with a white head. Bitter hoppy aromas. Not a a bad ESB. Bland bitter hop notes dominate. Average body and mouthfeel.

I quite like this brew, but I like it better from the firkin tap and beer engine pull and special release blend. A coppery pour with a nice head, lingering lacing, and an overall drinkability that works well year round.

Nice. One of my personally favorite styles. This one is quite good all the way around. I would prefer more mouthfeel (slipperiness) and perhaps a bit more maltiness, but overall, solid, good, and cannot complain.

Can tracked down by my parents - thanks! Murky orangish-brown pour with a huge foamy head. Aroma is earthy, bready, and lightly spicy. Taste is malty, earthy, light spice. Not bad at all.

From can into snifter pours a clear, deep ruby...not amber like others have noted. Once thick and frothy head quickly disappeared. Taste is more roasted and malty than hoppy...again, not like others saying it's quite hoppy. Not a bad beer, would prefer more hop and lighter palette though. This, to me, is more of a red than an ESB.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper pour with hardly any head, but the lacing rings stick around for a bit. Big sweet malty aroma, even some butterscotch, with nutty notes. A little too sweet for my preferences, though. Tastes far better: sweet malt with some very nice resinous pale ale bitterness in the finish. Great tasting! However, this is another Core beer with an overly watery palate; their Okto had the same problem. If this smelled better and weren’t so watery, it would be an outstanding ESB. The resin finish is just delightful; too bad about some of the other elements.
