This is my first beer after a medically related two week abstinence so it is kind of special. Starts off with a decent white head with a wee bit of lacing. Pleasant, light copper-colored appearance. Excellent malty aroma - bit of a wort-like quality to it. First half of the bottle is smooth with some malty undertones but turns a bit carbonated and tinny near the end. Perhaps the chemicals that are usually found in beer is what would keep the palate strong in this case. Not quite as hoppy as some bitters - more akin to some stronger session ales. Overall, a decent bitter.

At first sniff of the escaping carbonation, I thought "Wow, a really malty example!" - and I was dead wrong - this is a dry-hopped piney example of a bitter that is weak bodied - tasty sure, but not overall substantial. M500 is right - where's the malt?

Very light ESB with tiny grassy hop finish brought to you by a very carbonated body. Slight notes of sweet malt are hard to detect. Super light overall.

Color is a clear golden hue of yellow with a inch high head of bubbly froth settling fast leaving a thin haze and big bubbles on top with thin stringy and spotty lacing. Smell is very light of floral hop and slight grass note. Taste is nice and sweetly bitter with good strong malt backbone thats a bit of caramel. The feel is light and is almost full with great sweet bittering dryness thats up front and smooths out through the finish. This stuff is very drinkable, very smooth and has a finely bittering tolerance. Quite nice.

Deep gold body topped off with a soapy head; lacing was o.k. Taste is medium malts with a nice hop - citrus and thinner towards the end. At the finish, there's a nice big rush of fruit and hop that should've stayed around longer.

Light color with light aroma. A little head. Flavor is a bitter hoppy flavor that is kind of rough. The finish was a carbonated medicine feel. Not a fan of organic beer i guess.

Looks like apple juice. . . Wet doghair aroma that burns the nose hairs. Tears of sorrow trickle down my face as I taste the first sip -> it is absolutely horrible. . . Sorry, but there is nothing else to say.

Clear hay with very little head. The aroma is hard to find in this one. But, after much searching, it proved to be for the worse. Nothing special in the nose. The flavor here was pretty bad.

Flower aroma, light in color. Nice sour grape flavor. Best organic I have had.

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