12 oz bottle, best by 8/2/11. Not quite clear brown with a fading meringue head that leaves a pretty lace garland. Nose is toffee and deeper caramel with hints of wild strawberry and gin. Medium body with a nice zing; a touch sticky. Taste is peach, plum and apricot then woody with lime peel. Nice offering.

6/25/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie. Mostly clear amber/red pour with a big fluffy khaki head that laces quite a bit. Slightly fruity and malty, bitter, caramel aroma. Sweet, caramelly, malty flavor with bitter hops, sweet tea, and more. Not bad!

[Bottle] Pours a dirty golden color with a soapy foam head. Heavy floral and fruit aroma seems almost artificial. Sweet rolls, biscuit, lots of ESB style hops, mild tea flavors and sweet toffee. Lingering sweet finish. Full in body, but the balance was kind of a mess. I got to say I liked this one initially, but as it warmed the flaws started to come out more readily.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle… Clear orange/copper ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. Decent retention. Toffee and black tea really stand out in the bouquet. Medium to full-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. The flavor is unsweetened black tea infused with moderately sweet toffee and a light twist of lemon. Finishes bittersweet - more bitter than sweet. Bottle courtesy of BgThang!

Thanks to AttitudeBrew for this one in trade. Pours a hazy brown-amber color with an off-white head. Nose is nice caramel, toffee, cocoa, some biscuit, and a bit of earth. Flavor starts with caramel, then goes to grassy hops, then some ash, then lingering miscellaneous bitterness. Medium to full-bodied for an ESB (even a double ESB). Interesting take on the style; nice and somewhat complex.

Ughsmash (7428) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear medium amber with a wispy off-white head. The aroma picked up redder fruity notes with a little biscuity character beneath.. spicy and earthy accents initially, with some pine resin and citrus showing as it warmed up a bit.. smelled a little too skewed toward the sweets. The flavor found sticky-sweet honey and bready malts at the core, with pepper-accented fruit, pine, and earthy bitterness around.. quite bitter and assertive by the end.. not all that enjoyable. Medium-bodied with just OK feel and flow through the palate.. it was drinkable, but I really don’t need another.

From bottle. Pours cloudy dark amber with lots of carbonation and thick foamy head. Very faithful rendition of the style. Solid malt front with a stiff hops back but definitely doubled down. Full pallate with bitter hops and long finish.
