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

Sample from bottle at 2011 Cincinnati Beer Fest on Fountain Square. Medium orange/amber color, small off white head, nice sweet malty aroma, interesting bittersweet flavor that’s sufficiently firm yet an interesting departure from what one might expect from an ESB. Tasty seasonal.

Bottle. Pours a clear burnt orange with a thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, super caramel malts, floral hops. Flavor again of tons of caramel, some toffee, bitter hops, and a touch of floral notes. Lots and lots of caramel. This is quite good! Maybe could have a more hoppy flavor, but that’s just being nitpicky. Very easy drinking. 8/4/7/4/14 [3.7/5]

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 12 oz. bottle from a six pack purchased at The Party Source for my rehearsal dinner. Pours a clear autumn orange with a small off-white head, creamy, that lingers all the way down. A nice English-style ale, but hoppy, with notes of fresh, grassy, citrusy hops and toasty malts. Light brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Clean, malty, and fresh, with a bit of lingering bitterness.

Bottle: pours a clear copper color and has a floral hop aroma. The flavors start as a mild caramel that quickly changes into a bitter, citrus hop flavor.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized creamy off white head. The aroma favored light citrus, earthy, and grassy hops with a hint of caramel sweetness. The flavor had some initial caramel sweetness before becoming more biscuity. Hops were earthy and grassy and created an overall dry bitterness toward the finish. Very slight hints of citrus come through.

Reddish amber color out of the bottle with a thin, foamy beige head that left some lacing. Almost a flinty hop nose with some earth and grass. Fresh floral and earthy hop flavors with some chalk. Grapefruit finish.
