Disclaimer: due to bad allergies I have a permanent stuffy nose, so I just give all the beers I rate a 5 for aroma.
Anyway, this is a nice beer with good flavour--however, I thought it was odd how the carbonation made the beer taste sharp to me initially, but it ends up being neat anyway because the bitterness hits you at the end of the swallow.
Not the best, but certainly not the worst, and I think it’s worth the price.

I wished for more. It is easy to be spoiled in this day and time when great beers are available and affordable

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.

This esb was definately not what I had expected, but I was not disappointed. It tasted quite sweet.

Hmm...great aroma, nice color, a bit cloudy, the flavor was slightly too bitter, and it left something to be desired. It was a good match with Chinese food, and good when drank very cold.

Well Done. Served on tap in Safeco Field. Nice body, full flavor. Good. For a bitter, missing the extra bite.

Salt...that is my main descriptor of the beer. It was not a bitter as far as I could tell. It pours beautifully and had an intriguing hop aroma but tasted like someone had dumped a pound of salt in the fermenter. Strange overall.

bottle- pour pint glass. nice copper color. mild aroma. subtle floral. quickly vanishing frothy white head. quick malt and slight bitter taste upfront, very good overall.
