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.

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

NordicV (1182) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad öl med ganska litet vitt skum. Maltig både i doft och smak. Något tunn. Sticker inte ut. Inte en "Extra Special Ale" snarare en ganska anonym.

mzaar (1640) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2012
Karamell och svagt av lime i aromen, det samma i smaken. Inte särskilt bitter alls, något vattnig.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Color:Slightly readish brown Aroma: Sweet caramel and a hint of butterscotch Body: Big maltyness, lightly sweet, hardly no bitterness Finish: Slightly hoppy and dry. Some grain. Some skunkyness Mouth-feel/Over-all:Heavy:Filling, light in carbonation, not very pleasant. I have had this beer for a while and it might have gone bad.

jgentgesdo (673) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Pours amber with a rather thin off-white head. Nose is malt with a faint smoky background. Some of the malty character is caramel, but not in a good way. Sweet flavor, no hops character. Medium body, watery mouthfeel. Rather mundane.

mallons72 (166) - livonia, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2012
I do not consider this an esb. Very malty, no hops. Strong caramel nose and mouth. I like it.

jsmerig (1260) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Pours light brown with mild carbonation. Aroma of sweet flower and banana. Taste is sweet with a biscuit like flavor and a rich but subtle earthy bitnerness in the after taste. Mellow but crisp in the finish. I like this beer an want to have more if the style.
