4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slowly drink several during a day and the last is as great as the first. Wish I could this beer in Texas. We typically bring back 15 cases after our summer trips to Wisconsin. There are many beers with more flavor but none that are as drinkable if you are having several. The other beer we bring back plenty of is Spotted Cow.
Say, if the new govenor would relax the rules for exporting of Wisconsin beers , you guys could be back in the black pretty quick

Unspectacular aroma with nothing standing out. Golden appearance with just a little cloudiness... Beautiful! Wonderful malted barley taste with good hoppy flavor. Stay on your tongue for a good long time just to remind you of the great taste. A great tasting beer!

Esser’s is one of the lesser known and smaller Wisconsin beers. It pours a golden amber color with a good scent of malts and hops. Upon tasting there is a good full flavor taste that is long lasting and delicious. I was certainly surprised by it’s taste. A must try for any Wisconsin beer lover.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the better Pale Lager’s I have ever had. Lot’s of flavor, rich, and heavier than you would expect.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Warner Park, home of the Madison Mallards. This is the best beer available at the ballpark, and that includes several Great Dane offerings (Crop Circle Wheat, Aaron’s 755 Amber, Mallard’s Ale). Therefore, it is not only Esser’s Best, but Warner Park’s and the Duck Blind’s best. Smells like a cream ale, but relatively faint aroma with some hops. Reddish gold color with a cream, off-white head and nice lace. However, it was served in a plastic beer cup. Nice flavor. Has a hop profile, but not piney at all. ESB-like. Session quality. Very underrated.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Milky barley malt and straw aroma. Golden yellow with nice off-white head. Mildly sweet milky barley malt and lightly bitter herbal hay flavor. Body a bit light. Not a bad beer - decent.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz. twist cap long neck brown bottle with no freshness date.
Made a decent appearance, poured a clear reddish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, very minimal amount of sticking, good carbonation.
Had a flour bready and yeasty nose with a light grassiness at the edges.
A crisp and smooth lightish medium bodied mouth feel, above average drinkability.
Slightly sour bready and yeasty taste with a light grassy hoppiness and a dry bready finish with a little lingering grassy in the palate.
I thought this was a pretty enjoyable lager, light and refreshing, ideal for the summer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Soft German style aroma emanating from the thick golden body. The flavor is pretty bland but smooth and has slighty sweet malty finish. Very drinkable and mellow, but not much character.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light yellow amber color, aroma heavy grassy , light clean slighty malt taste. Gets points for not having any noticable off tastes. Taste however did not deliver the promise of the aroma
