You will find this beer to have some subtle chocolate,coffee and caramel undetones followed by a pleasant bitter hopy bite as it finishes. Very Palatable.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 Poured a deep amber color with no head or lacing. Aroma of flowery hops, grassy, and light malt aroma. Amazing balance here, perfect for a bitter. Juicy hops, spicy and sweet malts. I could drink this all night, I bet this is AMAZING on cask!

Poured a golden brown with a nice head and nice lacing. Malty taste with sweet caramelly backbone ending with a surprisingly hoppy finish...much hoppier than other ESB’s I’ve had. It almost tasted like a hoppier than normal English Pale Ale more than an ESB. Very good and well balanced brew!

Copper body topped by a fine particled off-white head. Quite the sight in the glass. Light caramel and bread offset by a big dose of EKG. Very nice flavors, EKG and caramel/bready malts, very quenching and one df the better American examples of the style I have had. Medium crisp body. Another winner from these guys.

guzzler67 (1665) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Attractive bronze appearance with a doughy aroma. Strong, roasted malt flavors effectively balanced with a prominent bitterness and a fairly high abv. Mildly carbonated with a dry, nicely hopped finish.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Root beer color with a mild caramel aroma. Smooth foaming head. Burnt caramel taste with a lively mouthfeel. Would be much better in cask, but good none the less.
