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.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2005 The label looked so cheap and uninspired I was ready to hate this beer, but it was solid. Very well balanced and very drinkable. Finish was its strong point where the hops really shined.

Very deep amber/brown color. Very interesting aroma with plenty of malt. Flavor is also malty with some hops hidden in there. Not like any ESB Iíve ever had. This rating is not to style.

Thanks to Jordan (Buck Dich) for the trade. I loved this Bitter! In my opinion much better than its site score. But that is why there are thousands of beers - to each his own. Beautiful dark walnut color. Malt present but hops still rules. Best combination Iíve had. I hate malt dominance but a lot of IPAs and Bitters have no apparent malt at all. This is like a 25/75 split. Great bite in the rear ....uhhhh I mean finish.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2005
Rich cherrywood colour. Aroma is rich and chewy - earth, toffee, caramel and wood with light fruitcakey notes. A lot of these are volatile and wonít be there ten minutes later, which is a shame because that initial whiff is outstanding. The flavour is brilliantly balanced between bitter, resiny hopping and toffeeish, demerara malts. The combined effect is as fresh, woody and invigourating as a mountain forest in the rain. The finish is long and continues the chewy element. The flavour loses a bit as it warms, believe it or not, as the malts come out more and the balance tilts. Still, an excellent example of the style and a damn fine pint.

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 (doesnít 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.
