Pours a clear copper, almost ruby. Off-white head dissipates too quickly. Malty, flinty smell. MILDLY vanilla or cookie-dough kinda smell. Fig Newtony, maybe? Medium mouth that feels a little chewy. Definitely malt forward, biscuity with slight hops and bitterness in the finish. Pretty good. May reach for this one again.

A surprisingly on the money wan from a hit n miss Brewer. Copper color. Head sticks around. Aroma of nuts and caramel, slight earth and pine. A little toffee pine and earthy hops on the tongue. Smooth and easy.

Shared 22 oz. bottle. As Laughing Dog CSB. Hah. Thought the CSB would stand for something similar to ESB. Not quite! Pour is hazy amber, with a thick beige head. Aroma is malty and bready. Taste is malty, bready, cloying, and sour. This is strange for an ESB, or perhaps for any beer. Not good. Didn’t finish it.

Aroma: sweetly malty with a slightly rotten note; Appearance: hazy amber with billowy white head that dissipates pretty quickly; Taste: unfortunately, it follows nose; Palate: medium body with long, sickly sweet finish; Overall: drain pour.

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.
