mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Lucky Labrador, pours a clear bronze with no head. Aroma and flavour is really weak and bland, with astringent hops and British metallic malt. Pretty harsh off-notes making this pretty undrinkable. Quite bad.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Draft at the NW Lucky Lab in Portland, OR on 4 June 2013. Pours a light copper colour with a lingering white head, good clarity. Caramel and grain on the nose with some grassy hops. Initial peppery hop bitterness nicely balanced by a rush of toffee malt, but retains a good balance.

Nice dark orange color with a thick head that sticks around. Very nice palate. I am really enjoying this beer.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Out of a to go bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. It has a pleasant hoppy aroma and an excellent bitter taste. Not too bitter but just right. One of the better beers from Lucky Lab and they are all very good.

poured from tap at Lucky Labrador. Pours a nice amber color with a good foamy head to it. Very good aromas of bitter hops, toffee, and caramel. Itís lacking some depth though. Extremely good medium/full body with a really nice smooth feel. Balanced with good notes of toffee and caramel with some malty tones and a very nice bitter finish. This was a very enjoyable ESB. Well balanced with just the right amount of bitterness in the taste.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Tap at Hawthorne location - clear copper pour - thick, soapy lace - flavor is lightly bready, with a lot of bring fruitiness underneath - fairly crisp, american hoppiness (citrus, pepper) - not all that traditional, but crisp and quaffable - a little bit of buttery character on the tail end - decent.

Travlr (21409) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Deep amber color. Aroma of light pine and subtle caramel. Taste starts as caramel, bitter finish.

drfabulous (6553) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Draught at brewpub. While fine and drinkable, Iím not getting a profile that sticks out in anyway. A drinkable beer, but mediocre for taste.

troopie (2295) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Draught. Poured red/gold with medium white head. Moderate lacing. Faint but pleasant malty aroma. Malty sweetish flavour, a bit of hop in the finish. A not very bitter bitter.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2009
On tap early 2009. Definitely not the "Hell Raisin" thatís also in the database. Thin sweet caramel malts with a mild bitter finish. Not much going on.
