Bottle: (Labeled as Lord Rear Admiral....3-19-15) Pours slightly hazy amber with a thick beige head. Spicy apricot, orange....herbal hop aroma. Flavour is herbal bitter, light fruits, caramel malt, hay/grass. Really enjoyable....a very nice, hopped-up bitter.

AirForceHops (4521) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared by Dan P, thanks bud! Fresh bottle without question here. Hazy amber orange color with lasting head in the pint glass. Aroma is a large amount of citrus and herbal hops on top of a toffee and caramel base. The flavor is just as aggressively hopped as the nose.

Flavor starts bready and toffee malty and transitions into the aggressive hop finish. The bitterness is of medium strength and balanced with the sweet malts. Highly drinkable and very easy for me to session this. If this was more available to me I would buy this as a go-to brew. Could be the best ESB I have ever sampled (mainly because it is an over-hopped American version of the style) well crafted.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 23.10.2013, 0,65l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, light malts, sugar, grain, dried fruits, butterscotch, almond milk, grass, old leafs. Taste is slightly sweet, light malts, harsh hay, sugar, grain, weeds, almonds, butterscotch. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and harsh mouthfeel. Nice for being a not too fresh bottle.

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a hazy deep copper-hued orange body with a massive creamy off-white head. Nose is floral piney tones, biscuits, red fruits, hints of fruity caramel and white sugar. Taste is red fruits, pine, herbs, mellow caramel, hints of biscuits and toffee. Amazing fruitiness and very nice balance, Medium body and carbonation. What a great American-style ESB! Hats of to Three Floyds for this one. :-)

ej (978) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2013
Very lively. Pours a orange cloudy body with a gigantic white head. Light caramel and malts on the nose with toffee and light grassy notes. Taste is well balanced with malty caramel, toffee and a light, floral bitterness. Hints of melon and citrus. A superb and highly drinkable ale. Crisp mouthfeel with semi-dry finish.
