Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Cider and toffee aroma with some floral hop. Pours clear copper with a fizzy tan head. Decidely sweet. Again with strong toffee and apple character. Some bitterness on the finish. Thin body. A little cloying.

nakedwhendrunk (2196) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Reviewed from notes recently found. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a decent looking amber to red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than a minute. There was some light lacing. The smell had a decent roasted apple of sorts gracing between some English malts. The taste took those flavors to town and made it semi-sweet but it really felt and tasted really like a true English ESB. On the palate, this one sat fairly light, but tried to show a semi-medium of sorts on the body. It was fairly sessionable and had a decent carbonation running about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good ESB worth trying. If anything, this honestly went really well with BBQ pork. Damn, what a mighty fine day that was!

This beer pours a red amber with nice a head. There is a strong taste at first but then balances out. The after taste feels sweet. A very tasty amber ale.

annunz123 (864) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Malty, nutty aroma with a little skunk. Flavor is malty and nutty and unfortunately slightly skunked, with some bittering hops in the finish. Decent but pretty standard red ale.

JulienHuxley (3263) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber pour with thin white head. Aroma is malty, quite a bit of caramel, light oxidation notes, peppery hops. Taste is sweet, malty/caramel with a decent bitter finish. Pretty typical american amber. Decent.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep clear amber color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is vaguely roasty, sweet, somewhat nutty and bready. Flavor is much the same, with a nice pale malt sweetness, touched with a bit of roasty bittersweetness and breadiness. Body is a little thin, with moderate carbonation.

BMMillsy (1432) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2013
Beer of the month club. Pours a pretty red color with small quickly receding head. Sweet fruit aroma with lits of malt and a bit of a buttery tone. Flavor is malty sweet up front, followed by buttery floral taste, and ends with some bitter. A little metallic flavor takes away from things. Easy drinking with plenty of carbonation. Ok beer, but nothing I would seek out.

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Slightly sweet grain/corn scent, clear copper color. Taste is neutral, a bit crisp and gassy, slight bit of sweetness, spice, malt. Not bad, just plain.

From a friend’s Amazing Beer Club shipment. Pours a red amber. Grainy aroma,some caramel. Flavor is a little too sweet, grain and caramel. So-so.
