5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Bottle: Heavy orange gold, quite hazy, large rocky white head, wonderful lacing... this beer looks superb.   Subtle hop nose, not as agressive as I thought it would be.   Definite malt aspect, probably moreso because of the subtle hop presense.   Fleeting bitterness immediately up front, fades quickly leaving only a soft hop sting on the sides of the tongue.   Fairly smooth for a Bitter/ESB.   Mildly malty, balances well with the bitterness.   Moderate body, but very smooth mouthfeel.   Extremely clean finish.   Again, lingering hop sting on the sides of the tongue well after the finish.   Very well balanced, crisp, and ultra clean.   I believe this one to be a bit underrated.

Bottle. No matter how gently I poured, this thing had a monster head. 22 oz. bottle almost needed 4 pint glasses. Hazy golden brown. Lacing was monsterous as well. Aromas were heavy citrus. Lemon and orange. Flavors were defintily bitter. Hoppy. Not a big ESB fan, but this was alright.

Kind of cloudy looking. Very pleasant smelling. Nice hops. Great with Rib Eye Steak at the Lake. First ESB that I have ever had. Would definitely get it again.

Got my nose a little too close to this fabulously smelling beer and inhaled some head, but that was the only downside of drinking this beauty. Hoppy, yet mostly in the start, it develops into a truly wonderful ESB, though it mostly makes me think of IPAs. Spectaculur.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Bottled. Pours reddish/golden in color. Aroma is fairly bitter and hoppy. Flavor is hoppy and somewhat bitter. Not extremely bitter. The hops are more subdued, rather than a full on frontal assault. Maybe a hint of yeast in the flavor as well. Good quality Rogue brew.

RichardGretton (4471) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2005
Cask@GBBF, 05. Glazed orange appearance with a strong head. The aroma is light and fruity, and the flavour is strong and dry with a smoothish finish. Overall a reasonable beer.

leaparsons (9110) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2005
Cask, GBBF 05. Golden/orange with a creamy head. Aromas are caramel, spices, oranges, lemons - good hops. Flavours are sweet caramel and toffee malts with oranges and spices. Has a good level of bitterness namely citrus fruit pith. More caramel towards the finish followed by decent bitterness. More like all those USA IPAs and nothing like a bitter. Still good, though.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 9, 2005
Pours copper/rust colour with a nice thick frothy head. Lemon & Lime to the nose with a hint of hop. Malt, citrus and weak grassy flavours with a nice long-lasting bitter finish.

madsberg (11069) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2005
Draught @ GBBF 2005: Orange coloured. Hazy. Off white head. Citric and herbal nose. Floral, hoppy and herbal flavour. Some sweetness and fruitiness. Nice strong bitterness in the end. Is quite dry. Nice one.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense GBBF 2005. An orange coloured beer with a nice hoppy bitter aroma. This is a tasty bitter with good hops and a little bit on the sweet side. I expected the taste to be brutal but instead found it pleasant, drinkable and understated. For me nowhere near as good as the Youngers.
