Pours a clear golden-copper color. Aroma is faintly hoppy with a round malty sweetness. Flavor is much bolder than I expected, although not especially strong. Sweet and flavorful. Not bad.

Single bottle from a Publix mix. Pours a clear dark amber with a lasting creamy head and good lacing. Aroma is caramel and roasted malts, nice but not very layered. Taste is the same - very sweet and malty. too thin. Good but not what I’d consider an ESB at all.

Bottle is marked best before February 08. To my surprise this beer still tastes perfectly fine, but it has been in the refrigerator for years. Slight caramel, some nuts and fruit, subtle hints of diacetyl. Crisp, clean hops, dry finish. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dry malty and very slightly spiced with hops. Really pretty drinkable and nice. Not sweet and weird like I was expecting.

pours a light amber with an average but quickly disappearing head. This beer is lightly sweet wit a cider like taste and a bitter after taste.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy, brown-amber with an average, off-white head.
Scent is light...caramel and malt.
Taste is a little peppery-caramel....a bit tea-like.
Just sort of fizzles out...too watery, too weak.
I see the intent, it just falls a little short.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a real strong aroma... almost has a ’macro-brew’ scent to it plus a bit of malt and caramel. In the current light, it has almost a burnt orange hue to it. Has a real malty taste. Not much flavor...no hop character to speak to. Pretty forgettable.
