Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big malty character up front, breads, toffee. Slight hop character. There was a noticeable sourness to the beer. Not to bad.

22 oz bottle bought from "Habits" cig store in Salem. $3.99 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

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
The nose is all yeast. Plenty of a fruit and a little sulphur. Slick, eggy, hints of copper and caramel. One of the worst Iíve had from them.

poisoneddwarf (1670) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours slightly hazy copper with a medium collapsing beige head; leaves a ring of ugly big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of dough, toasted bread, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is lightly sweet before a nice hoppy bitterness sets in and lingers there long after the swallow. Itís earthy, grassy, caramelly. Carbonation is medium to high, body is medium. Good.

Gerbeer (1664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with little head. Aromas of dry grass, light biscuit, and toasted malts. Flavors of bitter resin, toast, malts, and burnt sugar. Not my cup of tea.

2013 version of Re NEW Ale, this one is an ESB. Has a nice malty flavor, light on the hops, and a bit yeasty too. Overall, very good.

Decent but nothing to make you say I want to try this again except the price $3.99. A good bitter but not very special. It tastes like their Radient ale tweaked to be a Bitter.
