COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HotShot ESB is an easy-drinking and remarkably smooth Extra Special Bitter, brewed in the classic-English style. More assertively hopped than ordinary bitters, light copper-colored HotShot showcases clean hop flavors, balanced by its slightly fruity nose and light-caramel malt character.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
A clear orange beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is lovely hoppy combined with some notes of hop oils - surprisingly hoppy for an ESB - I guess it is Cascade. The flavor is ofcourse sweet malty, but really more dominated by hops and hop acids, leaving You with a dry bitter note on the tongue. There are a slight nuttyness also. Jeppe bring more of this home - nice.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2006 [Bottled at Old Eskil Ölkultur, Eskilstuna] Hazy dark amber, rich creamy head. Plenty of caramel, some grass. Medium bodied with clean - too clean - mouthfeel and low-medium bitterness. With it’s laid back hop character it relies heavily on malt character, but hard crystal malt does not provide what I’m looking for in terms of depth.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2006
Beautiful copper color; giant head, too much… fermentation? Some aroma of hop, light yeast. Malty taste; medium body structure; toffee; very good hop flavor and bitterness. Very good.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 25, 2007
Hazy orange with large thick creamy and lasting head (lively carbonation). Malty caramel & fruits in the aroma. Ok mouthfeel - schockingly surprised about how little the hop performance is - very moderate. Fruity orange malty taste with the hops in the background. Good lacings. Overall im use to more from Great Divide! Drinkable & pleasant though!
