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.

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.

Well, itís 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 wouldíve never bought it. Thanks for wasting my money by not putting that on the label.

Blairgus (3962) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djd07 (8361) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a small frothy beige head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is sour fruit and bready malt. Thin mouthfeel with a dry fruit flavor and light bitter finish. A decent ESB from Laughing Dog.

ttoadee (1173) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Warm copper, with a slightly off white head. Sweet malt and spicy hops in the nose. Nutty malt in the middle followed by more spicy hop flavor. Finish shows some alcohol. Decent beer.

RedSox2004 (1587) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
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.

Clear, dark amber with an off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of toffee, dough, and a hint of citrus. The taste is crisp malts with a slight, but nice, bitterness. Medium bodied and crisp, finishing a little bitter, with a moderate carbonation. Good ESB.
