Dark brown pour. A bit sweet for my taste. Seems fairly true to the style, but would love a little more b with my esb.

JorisPPattyn (9503) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2008
Medium head, halfway mango-amber, dense, over very slightly hazed darker orange-amber beer. Grape/raisins cake with hoppy & lytchee aromas. Hops, but especially leafy/earthy flavours. Bitterness comes after a general sweetish-malty impression. Bit fiery MF, not very well-bodied. Palate falls a bit dead, leaving only indifferent bitterness. Beautiful nose, great flavours, but average finish.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2008
Bottle courtesy of daknole. Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells of caramel and sweet malt. Tastes of pepper, caramel, spice, some earthy compliments on the finish.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Poured to a bright copper color with medium off-white head that lingered thru mid glass and left okay lacing. Aroma was hoppy citrus and the mouthfeel full and slightly bitter. Taaste was a follow-up of the bitter hoppy citrus, with an undertoen of malty sweetness at midglass. Rounded to a nice, full warming finish, with just the right amount of dryness. Good effort Sweetwater!

dchmela (3013) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Thanks to Ian for the bottle. Pours a nice reddish brown with a thin white head. Citrus hop and caramel malt aroma. Nice medium thick body with lots more caramel malt and big citrus hops hops. Tasty and easy to drink.

emacgee (4613) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Pours a red orange copper with a one finger frothy off white head. The nose is sweet, citrusy hops, pretty pungent, has a nice (American) hop character laid over a prominent malt character. The flavor is sweet, citrusy hops, hop presence, malty, orange peel, light bitterness, lightly subdued. The palate is thin waxy with a light body.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Caramel apples in the nose with some with slight resin. Brilliant light amber in color with a nice off-white head. Juicy caramel mixes with noble hops to give some citric twang. Long, balanced finish. A great beer!
