COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitch Creek perfectly balances big malt sweetness and robust hop flavor for a full bodied, satisfying mahogany ale. Like the stream for which it is named, our Bitch Creek ESB is full of character... Not for the timid.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Pours a clear copper bronze with a thick puffy, and well-lacing off-white head. Aroma is semi-sweet, malty, and earthy with an English hop balance. Body starts with a candy-like sweetness, some lager-like off-flavors and a semi-dry finish. Goes down smooth, but could use a touch more balance throughout. Otherwise a decent ESB, thanks Indiana_Red.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2004
GABF 2004. Deep golden body with mild carbonation and a tight sudsy beige head. Aroma of toasty malts, earthy hops and a smoky note as well. Malty but semi-dry flavor with a nice medium bitter finish. A highly drinkable, nicely styled ESB.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2004
Mahogany is a good description of the colour. Moderate caramel head. Rich malt aroma with present hops. Dark sweet malt flavour. Intriguing bitterness and trace of alcohol.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Pours a mahogany color with a thin, lacy head. Very malty aroma. The taste lives up to the aroma. I could have sworn I tasted something a little bit like lemongrass... quite a nice bitter!

This was a sweet ass bitter. The name of it is the shit too. It was one of my favorite Grand Teton beers. It was red with a creamy head.

IndianaRed (2184) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2004 Bottle Pours very dark copper. Very little head and not much lacing. Smells of slightly sweet hopps. Strong hops flavor with a dark roast slant. Very little carbonation and a clean finish that leaves you with that lingering pucker of a "hoppy" brewskie

Pours with a nice, large, frothy head; heavy caramel malt aroma with some grassy, piney, citrus hops thrown in; heavy malt base with wood and toffee notes; full, creamy body and a nice hoppy bitter balanced finish; I do detect a bit of that cardboard oxidation, but I’m not sure I would have picked it up if it wasn’t mentioned already. Good brew, overall.
