GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Pours clear copper color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is mostly corn, a bit yeasty. Flavours are hop, caramel a bit of sweet grass - Kinda watered down. This is better then most mass produce stuff, but not my favorite. There are other ESBs that are much better then this one.

bsawatzky (153) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2005
bottle. poured a coppery color with offwhite head. crystal clear giving it a watery appearance. aroma was of sweet malts and a not unpleasant wet dog smell. the flavor was different than i was expecting. the dominant flavor came from the sweet malts with the slightly bitter hoppiness tacking a back seat. i found i quite enjoyed the balance. mouthfeel was average. if anything it could have used a bit more hoppiness but only a slight bit. i enjoyed this one.

This has a dark amber appearance, initial taste was ok, but after the first sip, got much better, nothing extraordinary but I am glad I tried it and would have this again

FROTHINGSLOSH (5250) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 This is the first time that I have tried this beer and likely my last. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bronze color with a medium sized tan head that fades quickly. The aroma is sweet, lightly vegetal and has a light fruity hop undertone. The flavor is bitter and lightly nutty with a light fruity hop element. The finish is sour and nutty. Overall a nothing special bitter.

Bottle poured a copper amber with a fizzy white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is light malt and hops with a easy drinking slightly bitter hoppy flavor. Above average beer.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
This tastes quite average to me. Malty aroma, clear amber color with a decent head and the flavor is typically ale. Quite fresh and good bitterness but too carbonated.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2005
Brownish color, small head, but some lacing. Very nice aroma; some fresh hops and something akin to canned peach. Initially, flavor is full, with slightly toffeish malts, but peeters out to thin with mild hoppiness. Quite ok as a session or possibly with some foods.

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2005
Very attractive deep copper - very clear. Pours a pillowery, fat head. Broad malts on the nose, some sweetness. More malts in the mouth, slightly subdued, but shows good balance. Very broad finish. Some bitterness but a long way from aggressive.

Pours a clear dark orange color with a thin white head. Mild aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Decent flavor of hops, caramel and malt, thereís a fruity thing going too. Itís buttery too, diacetyl maybe ? Light body, creamy and oily texture, soft carbonation. Not bad but itís kind of boring.
