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.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Bottle - Pours a reddish brown in color with a thin whitish head that quickly fades to a ring around the glass. Aroma initially had an unpleasent sulphurous odor, but that disappeared after the head evaporated. From there it was slightly roasty with a small amount of hops. Flavor is not strong, but has tones of roasted malt, piney hops and malty/caramel undertones. Finish is fairly long, clean and fairly bitter. Fairly average.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2004
This beer pours a clear red, though slighty dark color with a thick viscous head and a minimal amount of lacing. The head had a strange almost pearlish/purplish color to it as well. The aroma is malty with a touch of caramel, but really its light and sweet. Flavor-wise we’re looking at a light to medium bodied brew which was slightly piney, a touch bitter and dry in the finish. Overall some malts and dry cardboard in the finish. Bitter and extremely dry as it warmed... very boring beer I have to say.. Only interesting portion was when beerguy101 spilled the bitch on himself but managed to catch it in mid-air after losing only 1/3 of one ounce.

beerguy101 (5285) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Deep red amber color. Small to medium head. Aroma is malty and sweet. A medium bodied ESB. Malts are nutty and fruity. Hops are slightly bitter. Maybe a little watery, It a very drinkable ESB, but there is nothing here to really distinguish it. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. And still yet another mediocre beer of the month club beer.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Bottle. Pours somewhat thick. Clear red with a cream colored head. Strong malt aroma with some caramel and fruit and a bit of wet cardboard. Surptisingly tart with some acrid bitterness. Overshadowed is some malt and toffee flavor. Good hop presence though. Overall unbalanced but palatable.

raymow (815) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2004
A good ESB - nice hop character to it and a nice amber color. Not much aroma and a pretty good flavor. Thumbs up - I’d buy it again.

TheBeerGod (5250) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Bottle. Courtesy of Degarth. Reddened amber with a huge tan head. Nose is lightly hopped with mild toffee, and some light roasted notes. Taste is bitter, obviously, but not overdone. Mild hop profile, more toffee-ish notes, light roasted malt, and faint nuttiness. Body is medium with decent carbonation feel. Finishes with more toffee, light hops and roasted notes. Some cereal notes as well.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2004
A amber beer with a small amber head. The aroma is very pleasantly hoppy combined with toffee. The flavor is very hoppy and grassy as well as contain notes of caramel. The alcohol leaves a slight burn - which amazes me considering the rather low ABV (5.5%)

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2004
Pours dark amber/orange with a foamy light brown head. Bitter hops, toffee and nut in the aroma, almost like a mild barley wine! Sweet flavor of roasted malt, nut, caramel and hops. Really good!

Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. Beige head. A nice and fresh bier. Malts, fruits, some hops and some herbal notes is what I get from this beer. Is mild bitter in the end. Nice one. Thanks Bück Dich.

crazyvin (1940) - New York, USA - NOV 17, 2004
sweet malty aroma with notes of floral hops. Flavour was bitter with malt notes which mildly chocolately on the finsih. Nice brownish-red body thin tan head which had no retention.
