3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear amber with a finger of off-white head. Aroma is tart with a predominant raisin feel. Flavor is rounded with only mild bitterness that is both dry on the palate but with a moist mouthfeel. A very nice alternative to the plethora of fruit-themed ipas that are around this time of year.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a murky looking brown with a large white head. Aroma is a sweetish toffee with leather. Flavor is a kind of earthy malt with a little plastic creeping in there toward the end. Finish is a bit watery and does not leave much behind. This was kind of an uninspired beer and as this gets a bit warmer the alcohol is showing up big time. Nothing stood out to even make you think this was a ESB.

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Herbal and earthy with a whallop of Earl Grey nastiness. I donít know who likes that shit. Thereís a nice hoppiness here, but I canít get past the Earl Grey.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell of sweet malts and some brown sugar and a bit of raisins in the middle. Nice lovely dark amber color. Taste of sweet malts, a bit of brown sugar, lemon juice, and mossy floral taste with a dry finish. Med body while perfectly carbonated. Lovely tasting beer feel like there something in the flavor profile Iím tasting and forgeting to mention cause I just canít out my tougue on it literally but Iím sure if I sat down with enough of them it would come to me. Nice work.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a darker red with a medium white head that slowly settles. The aroma consists of caramel, pine, bread, grapefruit, and some traces of herbal hops. The taste has some mild bitterness and is a bit sweet. There is caramel, pine, berries, grassy hops, and a little bit of grapefruit. Aftertaste has pine and berries that doesnít last very long. Medium bodied, more of a sticky texture, and an average amount of carbonation. Pretty good, I wouldnít mind buying this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber in color. A nice two finger head. Aroma is a well balanced smell with hints of roasted grains and just a very small whiff of citrus. Taste is also well balanced though it seems a tad hoppy for an ESB.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into nonic pub glass. Great graphic design and overall concept. Clear deep reddish amber colour with big, bubbly, beige foam, long-lasting with lots of great lacing. Perfect appearance. This is labelled an Extra Special Bitter, but I view it as a full-on Engish IPA and an extremely good one at that. Complex malt sweetness, burnt caramel, bready, biscuity, toasty, bright coffee acidity, Earl Grey tea tannins and citrus zest. Classic English-style hop bitterness, flavour, and aroma, all turned way up: orange marmalade, floral, earthy, woodsy, black currant, gooseberry. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Delicious. A distinct, memorable, above-average beer here. Really hit the spot. Iíll definitely go back for a whole six pack next time, and I look forward to trying other Crazy Mountain brews.

Bottle. Biscuity malt aroma with some caramel and hop notes. Pours amber colored with a large tan head with excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with biscuity malt flavors with a touch of caramel sweetness. Finishes a bit dry but smooth with some floral hop notes. Nice ESB.
