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.

12 oz bottle. Clear dark amber color with a lasting tan head. Roasty malt and bread dough dominate the aroma. Taste is nutty then becomes nice and roasty then turns malty. Tangy, chewy hops blend this fantastic breer in your mouth.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - MAR 6, 2005
deep reddish brown color with a light tan head that quickly dissapates to almost nothing. sweet hoppy aroma with notes of roasted malt. smooth but slightly watery consistency, surprisingly bitter finish. I bought the beer not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Nice amber color with a medium tan head. Roasty citrus hops and ash aroma. Nice mild roasty malt, cirtus, and nutty flavors. Dry, fairly bitter finish.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Mahagony color with a medium beige head. The aroma was roasty with some citrusy hops (doesn’t fit.) The flavor was quite roasty, citrusy, nutty, burnt bread. The feel was slightly thin...slightly soft carbonation...semi-dry finish.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Pours amber with lots of red, light brown head dissipates. Aroma is malt followed by hops. Very earthy, grassy aroma. Flavor is dry and bitter. Nice rich body. Bitterness lingers nicely. Good hoppy burps.

deep amber color, thick beige white head. aroma is quite well balanced between the citrusy hops and caramel-like malts. flavor is mildly fruity, with a slight alcohol bite. hops are slightly grainy in the finish. nice ESB. thanks Mitch!

ricardowess (25) - Sedona, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Didn’t expect much from this one... but was happy to pour a few of these. Reddish - Amber color w/ pumpkin colored head. Roasted malt flavor and some spices match well with a decent hop content and hop aftertaste. Good find.

Pleasant surprise. Nice copper body under an ample beige head. The aroma was hoppy with notes of malt and spice and herbs. Thin bodied, nice carbonation. Flavor was pleasant. Slightly bitter and some citrus. Nothing great but nothing to bitch about.
