2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber and cloudy with a moderate white head. Slightly week aroma - spruce hops and a bit of maltiness. Taste is what I would describe as a woody bitterness with roasted malts. Finish is abrupt and bitter. Not much else going on.

Draught @ The Beacon, Whistler B.C.
Caramax!! Bitter, where? None to be had.
Completely overboard sugary sweet, caramel, cookie dough.
Looks pretty enough, clear red copper, beige head, but a frappacino at Starbucks is more bitter...

An enjoyable bitter with a moderate malt and nice showing of hops. Biscuity and bready malts with light citrus and floral, spicy hops show in a light amber body. The finish is moderately bitter with light astringency.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle to Sam Adams glass, the pour is a transparent red-amber with a small white head that quickly fades. The aroma is weak and quite hop forward for an ESB. Piney and citrusy and hardly any sign of biscuit/caramel/toffee.Taste is too bitter to be an ESB and is way loaded with hops. This is not an IPA, it’s an ESB or so the bottle says. Ignoring the style stuff this is good but I don’t like bullshit surprises. Palate is good...thin, easy to drink, balanced well. Carb is pretty high for the style. Overall...I’m getting the impression that these guys love to chuck more hops than necessary into every style of beer and mislabel it accordingly. They should just call this IPA #76...points off for being misleading.

A hazed amber ale with a thick frothy lacing off white head. In aroma, light sweet caramel malt with light grassy hops, light oxidation, honey. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, light floral c-hops, a bit old.
