Tea, dandelion, and honey aroma. Clear golden, thin lacing head. Hay and dandelion flavor, not as sweet as the aroma. Approaches citrus in the finish, but remains somewhat floral. More character than most ESBs, EPA if not IPA.

Bottled. A golden beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of hops, caramel, and grass. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrusy hops as well as lighter notes of caramel. Very easily drinkable.

(500ml bottle, labeled Williams Brothers Scottish Joker I.P.A.) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of pineapple, biscuit, orange, persimmons, caramel, and grass. Flavor of biscuit, caramel, grass, and citrus with a dry, moderately bitter finish.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Eh...Typical ESB without the malty flavor. I was ready to jump all over this beer because my bottle says "Joker IPA" and IPA this isn’t. Anyhow aroma was weak. A hint of grass mixed with some stale hops are all that come out. Pour was a nice medium gold with a two finger white head. Taste was average at best. Slight lemon grass with thin tasting hops throughout. A caramel malt backbone that is weak and hard to find. Blah.
