On tap at the Varsity Pub in Marshall. A nice new beer in their VERY mediocre line up. Quite flavorful and tasty!

Thanks, Anna! Pretty nice ESB, a healthy amber pour with a crisp carbonation and a lively head. Biscuit malts for sure but there’s a solid hop presence throughout and some fruity undertones too. Well balanced and drinkable, even if not too memorable.

A great ESB. A world beer cup medal winner. Probably the best of the Lazlos regular beers.

SirADNielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle @ home. Hazy, dark orange appearance with an off white head. Mildly toasty, caramel malty, mild earthy, grassy hoppy aroma. Slightly citrusy, toasty caramel malty, moderate toffee, straw/grassy hoppy, cereal flavor. Nice to see Nebraskan brews finally make it to Colorado but this one is just decent.

BVery (6069) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy light dirty gold pour with a smaller white head. Aroma is a bit of aspirin and cough syrup, with some sweet caramel. Medium to lighter palate, with a nice carbonation bite. Taste is slightly medicinal, caramel, cereal, candy sugar, with a nice hop profile. I see someone referenced GrapeNuts as a flavor comparison - I like that, I also get that.

drjay44 (2605) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, short lived, white head, over a hazy, amber (SRM 8) body....nose is light toffee/caramel, light cereal, light toast....taste is cereal (Grapenuts), light toffee/caramel, light bitter finish....mouth feel medium, carbonation medium. This is a fairly typical ESB, not complex, just pleasant. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

Poured a honey amber color with light head and some lacing and carbonation bubbles. Smells of grass. Can taste subtle hints of the biscuit but is too bitter for me.

[Tap] Part of a sampler at Lazlo’s in Omaha. Dirty blonde pour with nice lacing. Crisp hops and grass dominate the nose. Actually one of the better smelling beers I had here. The taste is of hops, astringent grains and some odd sour notes. Low carbonation levels. A pretty pedestrian beer.
