marcus (7551) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 18, 2008
This golden ale poured with a bubbly off-white head that dissipated right away. The aroma is sour caramel. The flavor starts off malty sweet, but quickly turns to a bitter finish - a bit thin, but refreshing.

bb (7510) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Bottle. Orange/brown amber with a big whitish head. Fruit malt aroma. Caramel malt flavoe with some hop fruitiness. Low bitterness. It’s a pretty good rendition of a Brittish style strong bitter without going to thick.

Ibrew2or3 (7461) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2009
The twist off cap bomber pours out deep copper with some haze and nice tan head. The aroma seems like spicy hops mixing with brown sugar, crystal malts and spiced red apple wedges. Hey, lots more flavor than I was expecting and virtually none of the classic Shipyard diacetyl. I get a bowl full of spiced ripe red apple wedges along with spice and earthy hops.

Ughsmash (7362) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, brighter orange with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up bready and fruity notes with herbal and orange peel accents. The flavor found sweet honey and bready notes at the core, with orange peel and spiced fruity notes around.. finished tangy over sweet malt. Lighter-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. smooth feel on the middle with good transitions.. solid stuff.

motelpogo (7239) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 6, 2004
competent english style ale. some pleasant hardness and light saltiness give a little class to what is otherwise a straightforward, lightly nutty, slightly floral ale

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Pours a clear deep bronze copper with a half-inch off-white head. Aroma has some earthy caramel and light butterscotch with a touch of English hops. Body starts with a bittersweet, dry, maltiness revealing some diacetyl before a lightly sticky, bitter finish. An ok bitter that would probably be better were it really brewed in the UK.

slowrunner77 (7083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"fairly standard entry into the esb catergory. sale at scolari’s for a $1 single. had with dinner. grainy malts and a touch of bittering hops, that’s about it.

blipp (6957) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Bittersweet nose with some fruit and caramel... maybe even honey. Medium body. Flavor is very well balanced with caramel and some nutty malt, but a metallic finish really throws it off. Not awful but really unimpressive.

swoopjones (6908) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2010
draft @ Sterling Place, Buffalo. Paler caramel colored pour. Buttery, medium rich maltiness, not a fan of ringwood yeast, diacatyl(sp?) butter taste mellows hop bite, medium mouthfeel. OK
