3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange brown color, very clear with a mild sweet aroma. Plenty of hops but not over powering. This is a winter ale for the summer ale lovers, light, some what refreshing with a good taste. I tend to prefer darker, stronger flavored winter ales though. This just wasn’t warm enough for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thin head on a clear, copper colored body.
The aroma is grainy and honey, but quite bold for a lager.
The taste has a building bitterness that is balanced with a mild sweetness. The finish is a dry bitterness and a little bready.
Low carbonation and medium body.
A really enjoyable beer and quite drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle bought from "Habits" cig store in Salem.
Deep ,clear amber coloured beer with a lovelly creme coloured head.
Light spicy hop and caramel in aroma
Very smooth like it says..caramel and fruity lightly resiny hop,definatly earthy and a little tobacco. Nice
Palate is fine but honestly could use a bit more carbonation
An OK ESB..leaning well on the trad English Premium Bitter side
