Dark orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong biscuit malt notes with a bit of grass. The flavor is very similar. I get some biscuit malt, grass and a hint of orange citrus. The bitterness level is fairly low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2014

This pours a clear, dark amber color with a slight beige head. The aroma is slightly malty with a touch of bitter hops. The taste is bold with just the right amount of hops that leaves a dry after taste. This is quite a well made ESB and a very well made beer, it’s well worth giving a try! fiveacestx (970) - Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle - Has a tea color with a thick tan head with chunky lacing and nice retention. Has an initial grassy hop taste but a malty backbone and a dry bitter finish. Not my favorite style but I like this one. wlajwl (6866) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Aroma is dry malts, light berries/fruit and a hint of pine. The flavor is malts, fruit/berries, light citrus/grapefruit and a dryish finish. Reid (2554) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2014
12 oz serving from a 6-pack from Fred Meyer in S.Salem.
Clear hazel nut brown colour with a large creamy thick eggshell white head.
Hoppy aroma first..citrus,orange.papaya..not expected for style but nice .Slightly caramel malts in the back.
Taste is more like style with the caramel malts taking a better place.Hops still there..PNW style. Its fine enough.
Mouth feel is fine and the beer is medium carbonated.
OK beer but not the best and the hops are not to style.
