Pours a sightless unclear golden orange with medium and quickly vanishing white head. Smells of caramely malts, faint fruits, older hops. Taste is caramel, light citrus, crisp, light refreshing. Pretty nice esb with a nice hop note

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a weak off white head. A light fruity aroma, orange and peach, then a caramel, biscuity malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. A mildly bitter taste to start, hoppy, with citrus and stone fruits mixing with a smoother, slightly sweeter, caramel and biscuity malt flavour. The finish is hop led, but the malt comes through later making for a well balanced ending.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into pint glass. Only a hint a head. Moderately opaque and brown in color. Nose is malty and dry. Mouthfeel is a little thin and very dry. Taste is very bitter, fairly malty. Kind of nutty. Like a really bitter brown ale. Super bitter. A little metallicy.

Tap at Kalahana. Malty, caramel, light hoppiness, light citrus, biscuity. Nice enough but low on interest. Not much aroma at all.

Pours clear, pale copper with a bit of yeasty nose. Toffee and a bit of liquorice from malt against moderate hop bitterness. Not a bad beer but not the best ESB I’ve had.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Poured into an English tulip. Clear amber with a nice light tan head. Aromas of toffee, caramel and apricot-like fruit. Slight floral hops as well. Taste is more of the same. Well-balanced. Smooth and crisp finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer was ok, but I’m just not a big fan of extra bitters, so trying to be unbiased here. Taste is very bitter..maybe even moreso than a barelywine. Flavors of caramel and hops on steroids. Very hoppy like a double IPA, but with half the alcohol content. Has a amber brown color. A better than average all around beer, but not one of my favorites in the Left Hand family.

A superb ESB - full of hoppy overtones. A nice malty taste and pours clear with a tight head in a chalice. Really enjoyable - will buy again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thick looking amber beer with a strong white head. The aroma is well hopped with oaty and yeastiness, and the flavour is dry with heavy hopped'ness and some maltiness. Overall a nice strongly flavoured bitter.
