I really wanted to like this more but it fell middle of the road for me.. basic gold, medium foam .. . light bitterness with a slightly unbalanced sweetness thrown in .. Ever go out for cheeseburgers and beer? The amusing house wine?

bottle-purchased in Austin, TX on my last trip to Ft Hood-deep copper hue with a fizzy off-white head that didnt last very long-a few seconds then just left a little fiz around the rim of the glass. nose of carmel malts, toasted chestnuts, lite pine, slightly alcoholic, but not in the fussel way. lots of carmel malt flavors with a lot of sweetness but the finish is long and resiny-makes me think EKG. Something about this reminds me of Arrogant bastard-the harsh hops on the finish-i dunno. pretty interesting and worth trying. Carbonation is soft on the tongue. has a long hoppy finish with a bit of alcohol.

Thanks to trader Air for this one Pours a huge 3 finger off white head. Body is a dark copper in color. Head retention and lacing are great Aroma is of roasted malt, earthy hops, and very faint corn. Alcohol isnt detected. The nose is very restrained and boring First taste is of slightly piny and floral hops. Copper malts and honey sweetness balance the bitterness throughout. Aftertaste is of bitter lime peel and slight alcohol. Mouthfeel is good. Ample amount of carbonation, semi light body. Head stayed throughout glass and contributed to the beer Drink ability is good. Semi sessionable, alcohol was hidden nicely. Wouldn’t say that this is a run of the mill ESB but its nothing to write home about. Still nice to see more good beer coming out of Texas in bottles. Just wish more breweries would distribute outside the state.

Another seasonal I enjoy from Real Ale. Deep transparent brown in the glass. Dry roasted coffee malt notes with a nice bitterness. Pretty generous length on the finish. Very nice.

Nice beer! Amber pour. Caramel, fruit, hops, citrus, mmmmm! Flavor is sweet and hoppy. I am really digging the few double ESB’s I have tried. This one is chewy and hearty. Really a good brew.

Whoah! A bottle from ericandersnavy. Eat your friggin hearts out on this one. Poured into the SA super glass. Comes out ruby tinged amber with a multifinger foamy beige head. Aroma is pretty much nice malt. Incredibly, fruitily hoppy flavor. Burns in the mouth. Any Englishman who tastes this would likely just curl up his toes. This could be my go to beer. Bet it would be, if I lived in Texas. It’s not harsh, just incredibly, smoothly, fruitily hoppy. Oh to live in Blanco. Maybe not though. Might be too far from an international airport. But if I was drivin’ through Blanco, I’d be packing back a whole bunch of this. Drink this, and your tongue will not pass into the corruption of death. Was that over the top? So is this ale!

Nice brown translucence, with a lattice-work type foam on top. Bitter, nutty, malty, smoky taste. Slightly watery though. Kind of like a bitter brown, but not that great. Reminds me a little of the Duck-Rabbit Brown, only not as good.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Bottle from Thirdeye11. Deep red pour with a nice head. Aroma is bread, hops, toffee, and oats. Flavor is honey, toffee, spinach?, malts, and raisins. EDIT: I would leave the same score, but note a definite earthy hop and a little spiciness.
