CapFlu (4538) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub in Burlington, VT. Pours a white, thin foamy head with an orange body. Lasting head. Sweet, fruity with a passion fruit and hempy hops aroma. Oily, bitter and fruity. A great tart dry finish.

on tap-pours a light tan head and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-hint of chocolate. Taste is plenty of medium malt-hint of chocolate, roasty, secondary hops (sterling/English?). Smooth. OK carbonation.

notalush (4872) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Tap at the brewpub - burnt brown/copper pour, with a lasting head - more of an american hop profile in the aroma, but that can be forgiven - toasty, with light caramel and roasted nuts throughout - a touch of mineral flavor makes the beer taste more "authentic" - one of the better beers I had here.

BrettTaylor (491) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2013
pours a clear amber gold with hints of red. No head, no lacing. Subtle malt on nose, a bit of bitterness and malt on palate. Med long finish. Quite drinkable.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2005
On draught at the brewpub (well it’s really a nice restaurant with a small brewery), 4/16/05. Dark copper-auburn, medium amount of mostly dissipating off-white head, quite transluscent body, light lacing. Smells fuzzy and bitter, with light toasted malt, a bit of iron and caramel. Flavor begins dry, lightly woody/grainy with lots of toasted malt. Prickly, but not very bitter hops add good balance and as it warms and finishes there is a touch of creamy caramel. Very crystally (malt), quite carbonated, but oh so fresh tasting. Medium body with no water/thinning.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 19, 2005
Draft pint at the brewpub. Faintly hazy copper with the merest touch of wispy foam...pleasant, soft flowery, honey-scented nose, aromatic hops and a whiff of cedar...sharply biting mouthfeel throughout, woody and peppery, creamy body with a nice sting of carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Pours a clear deep copper with a nice, frothy, off-white and well-lacing head. Aroma is lightly caramel malty with a nice hoppy presence. Body is full, crisp, and malty, but more bitter than most ESBs. Finishes somewhat clean with some stinging carbonation. An ok version of the style.
