bhensonb (11137) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours bright copper with a beige head. Aroma is floral with somewhat toasty malt. Med body. Flavor is rather sweet toasty malt with some floral hop. Maybe a touch too sweet for the style. Or not. Little hints of chocolate creep out. Not sure it nails the style. We need to ask one of the cousins about that. Nice.

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Old rating from BA. On tap at 5 Points. The pour is a fairly dark amber color with a fingerís worth of off-white foam. A fair amount of toasty and biscuity malt that is paired with some floral and citrus hop notes. There is a hint of nuttiness to this beer as well. This is a fairly sweet and malt forward beer. The biscuity malt is contrasted by a bit of a bitterness and some light citrus and grass flavors.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
On tap @ Canyon Club: Appeared as a medium brown tea color with tiny thing development of foam head. The aroma is faint but has evidence of lightly toasted malts that give off a slight scent of toffee and nuts. The drink is balanced well with a heavy body and the addition of quality English malt that brings out a bready taste of whole grains with notes of honey. Minor notice of bitter hops but Iím satisfied with this ESB and will say it again, itís a solid effort.
