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.

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.

Bottled. Beer on th Month Club. This was a little suprise. Was more hoppier that bitter. Malt mixed right in. Well balanced.

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.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2005
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.

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 (5338) - 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.

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.
