3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light brown with fruity nose and almost citrusy flavor. Great malty flavor balanced with just the right touch of hops. Good head retention and overall appeal. Finishes with crisp with lingering citrus hops. Crotch sniffingly good! Or bad...depending on taste!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 3/23/2012. Pours slightly hazy red-orange color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some foamy spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of orange, lime, caramel, toast, herbal, floral, biscuit, and light spiciness. Nice aromas with good strength and balance; pretty typical ESB aromas. Taste of orange, lime, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, and herbal spiciness. Fair amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, toast, biscuit, caramel, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice flavor balance, with no cloying flavors at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice ESB offering. Nice flavor balance, and very smooth to drink. This is quite enjoyable.

caramel, milky and fruity. some malt and a bit of citrus the brew strikes one as a nice type of amber brew at first. tragically the brew becomes vague even with a full mouth bitterness that is mostly of black pepper. tangy and caustic it is incomplete.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad. Pours amber and cloudy with a small head. Very smooth and easy to drink, with no beer harshness. I get some very faint fruit notes to it.
