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

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.

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 thatís just being nitpicky. Very easy drinking. 8/4/7/4/14 [3.7/5]

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--itís pretty damn good! Excellent nose, with serious hops to bust your ass. Really nice finish.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark copper with a one finger off-white head. Pretty good head retention and nice lacing clinging to the sides of the glass. Aroma is very floral with some citrus. a little bit of light caramel as well and some toast. Quite nice. Flavor has light floral and citrus hop flavor up front transitioning to caramel, toffee, and a little toasted malt. Some nice earth flavors in there really help bring out an autumn character in this beer. Bitterness is moderate and the beer finishes slightly sticky with no alcohol detectable whatsoever. Overall, a really nice fall beer that I would never guess was 8%. Drinkability is not very high due to the abv but definitely a beer to seek out.

nuplastikk (4565) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2013
12oz bottle. This is really what I like to see in a seasonal beer; someone breaking the mold but still remaining sensible and true to the spirit. Bigger and bolder than the bottle would suggest. Big, rich,malt tones with a pleasant, earthy, fruity, hop balance. Big, full bodied beer for the style, with a nice

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.

Slightly orange tinted brown with a whipped, yellow-tan head. Toasty aroma...light fruit, floral hops. Taste is spicy, floras, caramel, malty. Almost an IPA... Very tasty.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a somewhat cloudy amberish brown with foamy beige head somewhere between off-white and light beige that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet with notes of dark fruit and floral hops. Tastes like it smells with a bit more maltiness. Solid on the palate. Good beer.
