1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
From a quarter pound can, heheh. First off, this is not yer typical, mild, enjoyable ESB. Somewhat revolting tripel esb aroma. Cloudy brownish lighter look. Expensive, may I add at $3. Big malty alky blasty thingy yippeee. Nssty blastic all across the nation ripping across my taste buds. Forgot about the CO2 because of the overly giant alky trippel ESB impact. Probably should not be in this style; Iíll say the style is strong english ale. Building astringent sides and back of the tongue. Mouth coating slam that only a real beer drinker could appreciate. Finish is same. I think Iím getting a little dizzy from this can. Yes, a real MANZ beer. Sickning cloying bitter nasty mess, on style for a trippel bitter.

Sampled at the 7th Annual Parkville Microbrew Festival on April 24th, 2010. Pours amber with a white head. This seems more like an IPA than an ESB. This is very drinkable with a good hop profile. I heard that this is replacing the Wheat as a rotating seasonal.

This poured a dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of fruity citrusy hops and toasted malts. Flavor was bright bold citrus, alot more hoppy than i was expecting with a decent biscuty malt backbone. Quality stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice, thick cheddar orange with a frothy head of off-white. Aroma is classic bitter: wet leaves, slightly roasted malt, old hops, and a touch of honey. Flavor is a nice blend of bitter English elements (wet and roasted malt) and a mild, wet- almost autumnal- hops presence. Average mouthfeel. Nice brew; a great tribute to classic English bitters.

pint can... pours a very dark amber copper, a huge light tan head rises several fingers, great retention and lacing, great mountain cap forms... tons of toffee and malt, pineapple and a bit of grass hops, smells like a good malty ipa... the taste is also very malty, some nice pineapple with a much more bitter finish than I was anticipating, a bit of alcohol though... the finish is all esb which I donít like, but overall a malty ipa thatís easy to drink
