Nice 3F take on the ESB...all caramel/butter/toffee...with a robust earthy hop bitter bite that satisfies. Very interesting rendition of a classic style.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2006
Wasn’t too impressed by this. Hazy chestnut body beneath a frothy beige head, there were notes of caramel, hot butter, fruit, but a touch of pine sol that disturbed the enjoyment.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 10, 2006
tap at the brewery in the glorious city of Munster, indiana. Clear ruby, amber hue. slight lacing head. Since they didn’t have a sampler, I split this with my buddy Matt. Hoppy aroma. Mix of pine and citrus. Floral and sweet honey. Medium with a nice raspberry cherry fruit note. Berries? Dry, but not too dry. Still nice lingering fruity flavor. Medium malt roast with slight traces of caramel and coffee. Great fruit flavors made this a great ESB.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2006
On tap at the brewpub 12/16/2005: Pours a transparent copper amber with a nicely-lacing tan head. Has a nicely hopped, dry, bready and caramel malty aroma. Starts with a dry cookie sweetness and a lightly sticky floral bittering hop presence. Not too true to style, but still quite drinkable.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Brown with a reddish hint to it. Thin caramel colored head with a malt aroma. First taste is smooth with a nut and hop bitterness. The more you sip the more the hops and malts combine to create a very tasty bitter beer with an aftertaste that makes you want more.

DrnkMcDermott (2793) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Sampler at the brewpub. Color hovers between a nut brown to a barleywine orange. Has an inviting English session beer aroma. Lightly hopped for a 3F’s product, but that makes it all the more enjoyable for a session beer style. Just dandy.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Imperial pint served at the brewpub. Garnet red with an impressive head. Strawberry, floral, and sweet malts in the nose. Woody, earth, and pleasantly bitter. Mild sweetness. Well rounded, and rich. Easily enjoyable.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark cloudy amber/brown. Caramel and bready malts that lead to a nicely bitter finish that lingers. Pretty good.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 A hearty aroma consisting of a sweet hop and malt mixture introduces this beer. It is a chestnut brown colored beer that produces a thick cream colored head. This beer enters the mouth moderately thick and with a sweet tingle. The taste is nutty with pine in the background; the pine taste lingers well after swallowing.
