Very light and crisp, but little distinctive flavor. Pretty bland and uninteresting.

1.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Light golden color, little head. Slightly hoppy aroma. Well, its bitter, which is the point I suppose. Tastes kind of like swimming pool water. Yech.

This beer poured a dark golden color and formed a nice white head that subsided quickly and left some lace. The aroma was of hops and malt with a slight fruit aspect. The flaor was of hops and malt with citrus overtones. The finish was astrigent, but not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dull gold in color with lots of tiny bubbles. Head is white and miniscule, but it does stick around. Aroma is of malt and yeast, and slightly of green grapes. Initial flavor is bitter hops, followed closely by a slight fruity (citrus & grape) pang that quickly turns bitter once again. Finishes with some kind of dry medicinal/chemical aftertaste. Too strongly carbonated. Mediocre at best.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very uninspired ESB. Light, watery and missing just about all of the qualities I enjoy in a traditional Bitter. If this is what to expect from organic beers, Iíll be sure to stay far way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight hint of nuts. Spicy palate with a hint of fruit. Not really anything like most ESBís. Very drinkable. Does Lakefront make a bad beer?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The bottle hadnít died quite as completely as the other Lakefronts Iíve tried, but as ESBs go this was unimpressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color with a quickly diminishing head. Light aroma of perfumy hops. Mild toffee and bread flavors. Fairly subdude hops bitterness. Borders on being bland.
