Poured a clear amber color with a little head. I get some nuttiness on the flavor which was really interesting. There’s a slight bite to this, too. GnarlyGnome (1353) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Draft, sampler: it pours a nice amber color with a tan head. It smells slightly spicy and hoppy, but the taste is a nice well rounded maltiness. edgallow (4476) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Sampler pours amber with a white head. Aroma of grains, malt and fruit. Taste starts with sweet fruit then malt and spices.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light citric hoppy aroma with light sweet and toasty malts. The flavor is relatively clean and balanced, with light citric hops, light sweet malts, and light toasty notes. Decent. Braudog (6836) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at the brewpub on Coxe. Pours an earthy brown with moderate lacing. Malty and mildly bready. There’s little bitterness in this at all, a seeming trend in supposed "bitters" lately ... drinks more like a Mild ale. Light bodied. (#4296, 10/5/2011)

On tap at the biergarden. Amber with white head. Malty hoppy Aroma. Malty grain flavor with hop finish. ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Appearance: Near clear, mahogany-hued body with a slim coating of white suds.
Smell: An earthy spiciness yields to sweet-scented caramel-coated toast and a low hint of fruitiness.
Taste: A mixture tasting of pale, caramel, and altogether toasty Munich malts. Sweetish in the fore. Nicely timed pop of fruitiness, and spicy, floral, lightly citrusy hops. Lightly bitterness. Fairly drying, but still malty and just a bit sweet at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not bad! A decently drinkable ESB rendition. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Pours clear amber with good lacing. Full aromas of bread & grain. Palate is a little thin, light on hops no real flavor character. Not bad but not great. jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
