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.

Ungstrup (30956) - 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%)

omhper (21761) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2007
Bottled. Dark ruby/brown, small head. Light grapefruity aroma. Medium sweet with clean crystal malt character. Medium bodied with restrained American style graepfruity hop profile. Shooting for balance it seems, but needs deeper, softer malt to achieve greatness. Still a highly enjoyable beer.

Leighton (14703) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle. Even before I got to this page I was marveling at the exquisite balance of this beer. Pours a dark, ruby-brown with a fluffy beige head. Big hop aroma with notes of coffee. Flavor is super rich. Big and hoppy in the front, giving way quickly to a strong malt character. Lots of burnt malts and coffee in the tail. Tobacco in the aftertaste. Medium in body with average carbonation. Damn, the finish is really earthy and bitter. I wouldn’t mind if there was a little more sweetness to balance this bitterness, but I’m still digging it. Nice beer.
