A very good bitter ale. Flavor is a bit restrained, but there’s a nice bit of hop taste and a good nose and palate. Would go very well with fried food.

Very conventional in taste and finish. Pours a light amber color with a fast receding small head. Smooth, yet flat bitter inital taste, with hop type light bitter finish.

Bottle: Has a slightly bitter flavor of wheat and slight sweetness. Has a bitter flavor that lingers, but isn’t overpowering. A good beer for a good price.

I think its a great beer to have with a plate of hot wings. I think I’ll have one tonight for opening night of the football season.

Pours a copper to bronze color. Starts sweet but finishes dry. Strikes a decent balance on taste and palate making it a good summer time beer. Very drinkable ESB. Not outstanding but worth a six pack now and again.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. smells of flowers & citrus hops. Amber in color with a white head, which didnt last very long. Flavors of malt are present and a piney light citrus flavor. It has a nice mouthfeel with the malt flavors present up front but follows with that piney bitterness. Overall this beer is average at best.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a great golden hue with a thin white, smell is very subtle, taste is light and airy, not typical for the style they claim for this brew, yet it is still a very nice ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a medium head that stays a fair amount of time. Decent lacing. Mild aroma of hops. Thin on the palate, and tastes of earthy hops with enough sweet malt backbone to suit me. A very sessionable brew.

For and extra-special bitter it is not, this beer is more like a lager, sort of reminds me of Fosters with a slightly fuller body.
