Hey, what can we say? Dogs do like to sniff down there. A British style ESB with the Laughing Dog twist. It’s clean and smooth, the way an ESB should be. Silver Medal NABA.

Dark, clear amber, Nice thick lacing. Tastes like quality butter on burnt toast (this isn’t a bad thing in this case). A good amount of bitter, that is nicely balanced by caramelized malt.

Big 1.5" chunky slightly tan head... looong lasting with very nice sticky lacing. Brown side of amber brew... clear... pretty. Aroma is fantastic.. toasty toffee malts and earthy hops.. fairly clean with only a touch of yeast esters. Flavor is bigboned for the style... full maltiness and bracing bitterness... fairly big spicy and grassy hops.... I would guess English style malts are used, but could easily be wrong. Lite very lite brown malt presence.. intricate... above average complexity.. Body is lite medium.. but somehow it and the carbonation pulls everything together very well with a lingering full tongue finish.

Bottle. Hazy deep amber colour. Aroma bubblegum, sourish, caramel, fruity. Taste is moderately sour, working with earthy English hops in an interesting way that one can think about. Overall soured, but worth a try.

What a uniquely strange beer. The smell nput me on my ass. It is malt, wheat, grass, star fruit, alcohol and molasses. Taste is even stranger. Strawberries, peaches, grapefruit, yeast, grass. This really a unique brew.

This one is well named because it tastes like crotch. Would make a pretty nice sour ale had they added a bit of lemon flavor. As is, it’s kind of like sweat mixed with seltzer.

Reviewed from notes verbatim on 9/23/10 A: Low head, but persistent bubbles creates a small foam cup. Brilliant clarity. Copper color. S: Sweet, hints of caramel, floral: tulip. Good ESB smell. T: The beer is an ESB for sure and has a sweet tone to it. I really like this ESB. M: Well balanced medium body with moderate carb. D: I really enjoy the sessionability of this beer. Laughing Dog usually spends their time making high intensity beers. This one is subtle and nice. Strong work. Serving type: bottle 03-18-2011

Bamsen78 (4605) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
bottle. Pours hazy rich amber with small off-white head. Dark, sweet aroma of malt and fruit with a clear alcohol note. Sourish and bitter flavour of hops with a note of yeast and malt. Watery but avceptable, although not well-balanced. Sourish, nearly bitter aftertaste. OK.

Cloudy orange pour, nice head. Aroma is of a german wheat/ hefewiesen beer. Taste is wheat, sugar and clove. Not what I expected for esb however I like it. Very smooth.
