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.

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%)

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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 This pours a reddish-copper color with a thin off-white head. The aroma is of floral hops (rose?) with a hint of sweet maltiness. Smooth mouthfeel with strong malts coupled with am earthy, flowery hop balance. Clean but mildly bitter finish. Few American breweries do an English ESB as nicely as this.

Dark ruby body, with a medium off-white head. Hoppy aroma, some malts. Nice bitterness with a subtle malt backbone. Good one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
