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.

Ungstrup (29332) - 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 (19378) - 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.

Oakes (12612) - 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 won’t 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.
