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.

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.

I don't really like ales, but this ones fairly tolerable. After-taste is like most other ales.

This is crap. Anheuser Bush product. Absolutely no character. Best examples of the ESB style that I’ve tasted remain with AleSmith & Fuller’s from across the pond.

never heard of this beer all i saw was ESB of the box and being as hungover as i was at the time thats all i bothered to read. well as i was soon to find out it was not an Extra Special Bitter as i had previously thought, anyway not a bad beer good to drink if your gonna drink alot.

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.
