3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Strong aroma is malty with fruity, earthy and woody notes. It pours a clear coppery with a pale yellow-tan head of about average thickness and persistence. Flavor has a woody core with a fairly, but not fiercely, bitter overtone and hints of caramel,

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange copper color with a slight off white head that rings out and settles for a bit. On the nose I get real subtle notes of bready malts, caramel and light apricot. On the palate its quite solid but not as bitter as I expected from an ESB. Malts galore caramel, biscuit, hints of earth spice. Watermelon rind, touches of fig and other fruity flavors. Nice beer just expected a bit more on the bitterness end.

Bomber. Pours pale amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is lots of earthy, lightly citrus English-style hops, some caramel, toffee, honey, light fruit flavors. Medium mouthfeel. Love me some English bitter, and this is a really good version of one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Darker amber, slight haze, moderate frothy off-white head, sticky lacing.   Soft biscuit nose, slight resin or citrus peel as well.   Malty start, biscuity but not heavy, with a soft ctirus peel background.   Very smooth and well balanced.   Has soft hop aspect that lends itself well to the semi-sweet maltiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Overall a well balanced, smooth, and easy drinking ESB.   Fairly crisp too!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This has a really fruity aroma with cherries, watermelon and cotton candy. Hazy orange/amber with a low volume but persistent off-white head. Some of this fruity sweetness follows on the initial taste, but is tamed somewhat with soft, bready malt and a surprising spicy/earthy bitterness. Finishes with a light and lasting bitterness and a nice biscuity aftertaste. This is a well balanced beer that gets better as you drink it and it warms up.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy amber-orange color with an average-sized, foamy white head with short retention, very little cling, and modest lacing. The aroma featured rich malt tones with caramel and touches of sugar and candy, along with some hops featuring citrus, pine, and floral touches. The taste had a subtle sweet maltyness along with a slight sour floral effect and some modest grainy bitterness. The beer had an average thickness with a crisp, dry, lighter mouthfeel, and had average carbonation and fizz.
