Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium earthy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

Deep caramel color with a large head. Aroma has nice loyal hop aroma, earth, malt. Medium bodied. Flavor has a nice earthy spice, light floral, light citrus, fruit, and a big of toast. Very nice.

poured from 12oz bottle to glass - Well, this complicated matters a little. I was ready to write off Mt. Carmel as a terrible experiment and then I crack this one open. I think it is an IPA, but call it what you will--it’s pretty damn good! Excellent nose, with serious hops to bust your ass. Really nice finish.

Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to Craig. The appearance is a clear golden amber hue. The aromas are sweet malts, caramel, and a nice moderate hop aroma.The flavors follow suit with a nice caramel, moderate estery hops, all with a pleasant bitterness. Well carbonated mouth very refreshing and drinkable. Nicely done.

Good looking - medium golden amber with a generous head and lacing. Taste surprises: the normal harvest caramel malt and light spice are all there, but through the palate there is a clean balancing hop bitterness. Nice difference from traditional harvest ales.

Chudwick (1793) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle in a small lager glass - Pours hazy caramel with off white head and leaves some lacing. Aroma is hops and caramel malts. Sweet and bitter. Starts bitter, then sweet and ends bitter. Not what I expected and hoppier than I like.

Pours a deep copper body with a thin but lasting white head. Sweet caramel initially followed by a dry, perfume-y finish. Persistent hop aftertaste. Nice lacing.

12oz bottle. Awesome amber-orange color with lots of fine, floating particles suspended within. Minimal off-white ehad, with plenty of spotty lace. Great, tropical citrus hoppy nose, with some spice. Great tasty malt body to back it up and give it a savory balance, but with some light sweet taste, too. Nice medium body, good texture, easy to drink, mildly refreshing, appropriate soft carbonation. Another great ESB... This style is definitely growing on me

Pours a amber to brown color with a small white head. Has a very hoppy aroma like an IPA with a hint of something I can’t quite put my finger on. Bitter but not up there with a typical IPA. Smooth with a quick bitter, crisp finish. Not bad for a Cincinnati beer. I’d try some others from Mt. Carmel
