I bought one bottle of this at a local grocery store. It’s not a bad beer, but i found it to be a bit underwhelming. Flavor was a bit thin, and while it looked nice in the glass, with plenty of foam sticking to the sides as I drank it, it wasn’t a very exciting beer all in all. Not bad, but not great either.

21 may 2012, tap. Light brown, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is dark toast and bitter grassy hops. Thin and fizzy body. Kind of skunky grassy hops and the Budweiser of brown ales. Not really appealing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance is small offwhite head with amber. Aroma is a sweet malt. Taste is a sweet bready malt with a hint of tea. Overall pretty decent.

Travlr (9997) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2012
This bottle brought back memories, since the cask version was one of the first real ales I ever tried, at the Waggon and Horses in Newmarket. The U.S. version is a clear deep golden color, small white head and solid lacing. Aroma is slightly sour citrus, straw, white bread. Taste is slightly more bitter and peppery than its British forebear, with a dry and lager-like finish.

ReggieDunlap (3030) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours a clear lt amber with a creamy medium tan head. Aroma has light toasty toffee and caramel with just a bit of earthy bitterness. Flavor has a spicy bitterness and faint caramel...fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is bitter and dry.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours a copper color with two to three fingers of white head. Smell is a bit malty, sweet honey, and a tiny bit of citrus. Taste is slightly bitter, a lot of bread and toast. Good drinkability. Interesting beer.

rangerred (898) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear copper with a two finger white head. Great lacing. Smell has a wonderful maltyness with butter and caramel. Some earthy hops in there as well. Taste is somewhat bitter from the malt with toffee and caramel with an almost wine like flavor and bite. Earthy hops float along underneath but do not contribute overwhelmingly to the bitterness. Overall this is a pretty good ESB. I can’t quite put it on the same level as Fullers but it is definitely something I would consider picking up again.

12 oz bottle poured into a large tulip. Pours a clear dark honey, amber with a 3 finger dense off-white head. Mild orange aroma with hint of malt. Bready/biscuit malt flavor balanced by fair amount of orangy hop flavor and bitterness. A pleasant. milder alternative for a hop-head IPA fan :-)

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2012
12oz bottle pours a lively copper with a pleasant off white head. Aromas of cereal malts bread and dough some carmel malts and some sour banana. Flavor is bitter with a bit of sour which actually balances nice. Body is meduim and mouth feel is very good. Finish is a bit dry and leaves a bit of sourness behind
