12 oz. bottle from a six pack purchased at The Party Source for my rehearsal dinner. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. A nice ESB, with notes of fresh, grassy hops and toasty malts. Light brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. I enjoyed this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
