2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Sweetish hop. Citrus. Lemon. Malt.
Appearance: Hazy translucent yellow-orange body with a light and foamy white head.
Taste: Mildly sweet malt with a little bit of citrus-y hop bitterness to balance it out.
Palate: Light bodied. Easy to drink. Short finish.
Overall: A nice beer, I just prefer mine to have more body, character, and depth. This guy is straightforward; sweetish malt, and lemony hop in a dry ale.

Btl. Pours hazy copper color with fluffy off white head that lingers for quite some time. Nice lacing on glass. Light malty sweet smell. Nice floral clean hop aroma. A faint hint of vanilla in the nose. Tastes of honey and caramel with a nice bite at the end. Smooth nice balanced bitter. Good easy drinking beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass (~1/3 pint)
From: A Chevron in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: $8.99 for mixed 6-pack
Purchased: May 15, 2013
Consumed: May 15, 2013
Poured a caramel, copper, dark urine-like clear color with 1-2 fingers of khaki-white head. Plenty of foamy layered lacing on the sides. Pretty good retention on the top.
Smelled honey malts up front. Also wheat, hay and grass with a touch of lemon coming through. Honey heavy for the most part though. Faint sugary floral hops come in late.
Tasted like a lighter version than the smell. Honey, wheat, grass with bitterness on the tongue after. Fairly bland.
Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish.
Nothing special about this beer. Pretty average all around.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Honey-colored, little head fades off, clear beer. Really nice aroma, nutty and sweet. Nice palate, plenty complex, toffee and malty notes, plenty of linger. Good tasting notes, much better quality than I was expecting.

Bottle via trade with Alex - thanks! Mostly clear orange pour with a smaller white head. Soft earthy malts and a little bit of grassy hop - just a bit. Easy drinking, and nothing off-putting in here. Pretty solid ESB.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper color with a off-white head that stays. Head leaves good lacework. Fairly active carbonation in the glass.
Strong aroma of hops, almost floral, with a slight malty sweetness in the back.
A good medium bitterness with a toasty, quite dry taste in the back of your throat. Almost salty.
Medium bodied with very active carbonation once on the tongue. Almost a
slick/oily feeling in the mouth. The dryness is quite long lasting.
This is a beer that can be consumed in large quantities, but I am worried that the dryness may lead to me eventually drowning in the beer.
12 Oz Bottle, poured. Brought from USA by my Mom! :)

Its hard to get an English bitter to work in the States, and this one is slightly better than average. Their selection of EKG apparent and well-done. The malt choice a bit more suspect.

Draft @ Four Peaks. Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma of toast, lemon, herbal tea and light caramel. Flavor is toasty malt with a medium hop bitterness, light fruitiness. Medium to light body with a crisp finish. Good session beer, clean, crisp and refreshing.
