JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2002
CASK-CONDITIONED VERSION: Baked apple nose with some grassy hops in there, as well. Velvety smooth with a sweet, warm fruitcake start that fades nicely into a grassy, dry hop end.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Amber translucent body with less than a half an inch of off-white head. Smells like bready, fruitty, and buttery. Tastes sweet, buttery, malty, and bready. Creamy mouthfeel with a medium to heavy body. Full-flavored and tasty, but well-ballanced with no one aspect overwealming another in this beer. Better like the ringwood yeast or you’ll hate it.

Bottle - Pours a lovely amber with creamy, thick head. Very soft hops aroma but a bit of citrus is there. Smooth as silk mouthfeel with flavors of sweet butterscotch and vanilla followed by a nice crispness at the finish. Nice example of an ESB from the states.

HighlanderOne (958) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2007
Poured from bottle. Way past due date, oh well. Aroma of hops, caramel, bread which greets you nicely as you drink. Semi clear amber, nice look. Caramel and cake in the flavor, along with the hops. Kinda a hybrid between a belgian and an IPA. Finished quite nicely. I’m quite pleased with this brew. This would make a great everyday beer.

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.

jaymobrown (1617) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2002
CASK-CONDITIONED: As I try to peer through my beer stained notes, I notice that I wrote this is light in color with a lot of sweetness but well balanced with hops. Bitter, creamy, and smooth.

This was very mellow...not as hoppy as I thought it would be but still nice drink to have when weather gets a little cooler.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Poured clear amber. Nose of bread malt and butter. Nice white head with little lacing. Tastes like a good english pale should. Has a buttery background from the yeast. Nice mineral flavor too. Very drinkable.

Thanks to my future sister-in-law for getting me this beer from of all places Texas. Bottled in Portland, Maine. Good beer. Good hop bite to it. I thought this for of an IPA than I English strong ale.

Bottle. Amber, off-white head that goes kinda fast. Yeasty malts, a little bland; probably goes with British foods pretty well ;) Something about it made it nice for me. Hard to put my finger on it. A little woody, like something that you’d like to drink in front of a fireplace. Some red apples in the finish, I like it.
