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.

Burnt red leather color. Almost no nose except faint hoppiness. It’s strong with a cream/ red ale mix, high bitterness, dense malt profile, faint blackberry, lots of honey. I don’t know much about this one but it’s the most memorable at least for how well melded everything is.

Not really red, more like darker iced tea. Has a slight aroma that I think is unique and somewhat astringent if that’s possible. Unique carries over to the flavors. Almost tart but its not. Yes unques all the way round. Comes across fairly mild for the 5.5 it claims to be. Pretty cool label fer sure. Like able fer sure overall.

Pours a dark reddish amber from a bottle. Nothing much going on here, either in the nose or the flavor, just a kind of yeasty maltiness. Meh.

Smooth and malt like. Red and clear. Smooth and tasty. Full bodied and a treat to drink. Worth a try.

Bulk_Carrier (2533) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, 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!

Interesting brew with heavy caramel notes. Pours a rich golden with a short frothy head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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 (3936) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - 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 (2145) - 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.
