Amber-hued with a little lacing. Aromas are heavy on hopcit. Bitter bite, with a hoppy center and a fading malt finish thatís woodsy and warm. Hops are a bit soapy. Quite "wet" on the finish. There is a bit of mineral in the flavor profile which is kind of nice. Overall, however, not in the class of ESB it aspires to be.

Bottle Cold Electro Lounge, Nice sweet malty aroma with subtle hops, great light malt tastes with decent hops quite nice and infact quite good for and American ESB not too hoppy but good amounts of malts. I prefered this one over Bridgeport ESB.

Looks much better than it tastes. Certainly bitter but tastes very watery initially.. I wouldnít call it well balanced at all. Doubt Iíll buy more.

Didnít like this one so much. In the commercial description I very much likethe phrase the ater uded is quite hard,,,the water used is quite watery ...this is like a ice tea with too much ice thatís melted. What a disappointement from its malty nose to its actual lack off lavor.

Not really impressed with this beer. I get a wierd tea flavor out of it. And the rest is just bland. Not a whole lot going on from a brewery that I have had much better from.

bottle - Pours light amber with a good malty aroma and a trace of citrus. Thereís some good hops flavor and mild malt, but overall just not enough flavor in general. This ale was surprisingly watery. Itís okay, but left me wanting something stronger.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden honey w/ medium spritzy froth. Aroma is hoppy with aged malt. Medium nectar with ample residual effers. Well let me tell you, this brew is bittered w/ strong flavors from the aged wood, tobacco, rusted iron part of the spectrum. HARD WATER! I think I aquired a kidney stone from just one bottle. I didnít enjoy this at all. I have found the TRUE English style is more to my liking. This is a poor example of an English style. Itís rustic yes but not in the least bit soft and lucious like grandmas old pillow. It is bitter however, from start to finish.
