Well, it’s got Brett yeast in it and I HATE Brett yeast so I took a sip and poured it out. Had I known it had brettanomyces yeast, I would’ve never bought it. Thanks for wasting my money by not putting that on the label.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 June 2012, bottle. Light amber, clear, no bubbles. Malty with some oats and faint grassy hops. Med/thin and slightly fizzy. Malty, faint tartness, some grassy notes. Meh. Just like the way a dog says hello: slightly unpleasant but I'll deal with it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brownish amber with a one-finger tan head that left ok lace. Aromas of toasted malt, over-ripe dark fruit, toffee and gentle spiciness. Flavors are similar, and include a gentle grassy/piney hops bitterness to fill out the malt sweetness. Light to medium body, strong carbonation, and a dry bready finish.

A surprisingly enjoyable beer. I really hadn’t expected much from this, however it was a good ESB. Lightly toasted malts with a bread-like mouthfeel, a bit of citrus in the finish that added some balance.
