Theydon_Bois (9932) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Tap at Lucky Lab, Hawthorne PDX, 26/05/13. Hazed dark amber with a thin off white head. Nose is light hops, caramel, bitter orange. Taste comprises light sugars, malt, orange pith, touch of hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, some hop and bitter presence in the finish. Decent enough ESB - American style - ie more hops than there needs to be !

Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Fruity malt aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Light roast caramel and lots of floral hop. Finishes lightly bitter and floral with lasting roast caramel. Very nice. Rather English.

stchloe (793) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Not the strongest bitter. More of an ale body, too sweet of a body and aftertaste. Some bittering in the end, but not enough for a proper ESB.

killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - APR 19, 2009
Tastes more like a pale ale than a bitter. Lovely hop aroma. Fairly drinkable, but my colleagues disagreed. Tasty, but not a traditional bitter.
