3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
More of an English malty beer with some hops, not up to the nice bitterness of an ESB. Light red coloured. Good drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up at the brewpub. Pours a dark amber. Small white head. Grainy aroma. Flavor of caramel and bitter. Mouth feel is a nicely balanced bitter. Very solid offering, much better then expected.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Amber color, clear, thin head that fades quickly. Sweet malty caramel aroma, taste is a little harsh. Average all around.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color out of the bottle with a nice khaki colored head. Light grainy nose with some citrus hops and something vaguely chemical. Flavors of lightly toasted white bread, with some tea, raw grain, fruit and a red grapefruit bitterness. Lingering grapefruit hops in the finish. There is something vaguely sour in the background.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of some yeast fruitiness, light toasty notes, and a touch of nuts. It pours a transparent copper with a one finger cream colored head. The flavor starts lightly fruity with mild caramel. The finish has toasty notes, light nuts, faint grapefruit, and herbal hops. Itís light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation and a mouthfeel that is a tad prickly at times.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a small head. Caramel malt aroma plus a little floral and herb hops. Getting a hint of sourness too (possibly infected?). Taste is ok. Malty sweetness, solid bitterness. Not very smooth though and there is a bit of sourness that throws it off. Not a bad beer just not very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is nicely hoppy fruity grapefruit coming through intermingled with a malty backing that is nicely well balanced. Appearance is cloudy very dark amber with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is smooth this has got a really nice mixture of hop notes and malt characteristics that just make it really drinkable. Palate has medium to low carbonation with and somewhat clean aftertaste. Overall, Good beer. Cheers!
