3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burnt amber color with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma is slightly musty with a faint nuttiness. Flavor is light caramel, toasted malt, a little burnt on the finish. Not bad, though I remember liking it a little more at the brewery than from the bottle today. Would make a decent session if I was looking for something smooth and malty.

Bad label, bomber. Dark gold, light amber, clear, thin white head. Aroma is a bit like sweet iced tea. One-note golding hops. Dry, thin, not very complicated. Long, dry bitter finish. Thanks to LuckyDog.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 On tap at Taco Mac. Pours a clear amber orange with a near white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a bit of a smoke note and is full of earthy grains and hay. Flavor is full of the same earthy notes throughout with hints of must and smoke in the finish.

Pours a drop burnt orange amber color. Tastes similar to an amber ale. Drinking out of bottle from holmes. Not a bad beer but not stellar.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light amber with a very small head. I don’t get a lot of smell off this one. Awfully malty, which is really not my favorite flavor. Not a bad brew, just not all that great.

22 oz bottle - Clear orange with minimal white head. Hay aroma. Maybe a little bread. This has a nice aftertaste. Overall a solid ESB. I’d probably have 2 at a pub. I wouldn’t buy a keg of it, though.
