2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
