A very nice American version of the English ESB. The US touches of a bit more hop bite adds to the brew. You could make a real nice evening with this at your local

This wasn’t one of my favorites from Stoudts, but I am not the biggest fans of extra bitters. The hops are the main theme going on, with of course, an extra bitter aftertaste. It is still a smooth, crisp beer....on the lighter side overall. Dark orange-light copper color. Better than average, but pretty much an across the board 7.

Pours a perfectly clear pale copper, the color of cider. Super-effervescent, tons of bubbles. Big toasted beige, foamy head. Smells of grass, oranges, caramel malts, toffee--not your regular ESB, but not bad. The taste, however, didn’t really follow the smell. It began with a roasted malt character, followed by a light grassiness and citrus, like orange peel. Like eating a handful of earth: the grassiness mixed with the earthiness of the malt. Bitterness hits in the back, after the swallow, but is so light as to hardly be noticeable. Somewhat sweet, actually. Where it really loses it for me is the mouthfeel: light and watery. Light carbonation is nice, but the drink is so insubstantial. I like the balance of roasted malts and hops, though.

Pours a ruby color with a lacy white head. Notes of jam, copper, biscuits, burnt malt, and brown sugar. Grainy mouthfeel.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, copper/reddish in color; beige small head. Aroma is mostly malts, caramel and some floral/grass notes. Taste is also sweet, malty, some grain notes, and some citrus notes... Drinkable and quite enjoyable; very decent beer.

Draft at Milk Boy. Slightly hazy orange copper pour that started with a good foamy white head. Pleasant medium-dark malts with just enough hops for balance. Tinged blood oranges. Nice juicy dark amber fruit. Black plums. Wattered raisins. Wood planks. Makes a pretty good session beer. Has been a bit of a go to.

njnut (357) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2014
pured into small tasting glass a red copper color with small head and little lace. Aroma was malt heavy but light, toasted malts and caramel and a bit of toffee. average CO2 and a fairly thin body. Taste was malty, caramel, a bit of hay. some bitterness but not huge. Not bad, enjoyable and a fairly good ESB.

12 oz bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor had caramel malt, lightly roasted, lightly floral and fruity with some balancing earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Worth trying once.
