This is an excellent beer, from the first sip to the last. I canít believe the price point or the taste. Iím not sure of the ESB thing, but it has a light, crisp tang and is quite dry. Excellent. Iíve rated a good number of beers and this one is high on the list of surprises.

Decent brew. Medium white head quickly abating to a slight lace. Amber-copper color. Some spicy hop aroma. Slight citrus up front finishing with a light bitterness. A little toffee flavor. Medium-light body.

KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear reddish brown with a light orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) light tan creamy head that had great retention and produced excellent sheeting of lacing. The aroma was of a sweet dark bread malt and a earthy Brett yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (lime), a mild spiciness and a slight fruity ester. The taste was malty sweet with notes of caramel and citrus from the start, and then progresses with a slight tart yeasty presence, a mild fruitiness and a light bitter peppery ending. The flavor lasted an average time following consumption with a mild tart spicy taste left to linger. Mouthfeel was just under medium in body and extremely creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall this was an exceptionally well made brew that was bold, flavorful and possessed a nice sweet, spicy tart flavor. And you gotta love the name...

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2012
22oz bottle. Small head, almost clear, dull copper color. Decent aroma, strong, kind of sweet and a little nutty, some berries. The taste is different! Medium carbonation, a little sweet on the nose, bitter throughout. Points for originality.
