UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 A very good ESB, firm sweet malt backbone, nice but not overwhelming bitter finish and extremely smooth. unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle: Pours a medium amber color with a bright white head. Aroma is excellent. Mainly sweet fruit with some light metallic notes, but in an unpleasant manner. Flavor is sweet, maybe a little overly so, but still a really good beer. Body is medium and relatively smooth. Terminus (3740) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 29, 2004
22oz bombers-pours a deep copper hue with nice tan head-darker than usuall head for an amber ale. Light carbonation for this style, but still plenty to go around. malts give a toasty aroma, with slight smoke notes as it warmed. hops are dry and piney (cascade/chinook). Very well balanced! Finish is woody and dry. A very tasty amber if you can find it! JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 3, 2006
I had this at a tasting at Bevmo
It has a nice up front malty flavor followed by a hoppy back end. It’s a very nice brew GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Pours a dense amber color w/ medium semi creamy froth. Aroma is perfumed citrus and carameled malt. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Citrus rind upfront w/ a moderate malty backbone. Grapefruit and mild caramel are the primary flavors. Big citrus bittering on the finish. Overall: this is a big amber, nothing mellow here. Highly recommended.

Bottle. A amber beer with a big beige head. The aroma is malty, fruity, citrus and hoppy and so is the taste, very nise. Medium body with a bitter dry finish. Good Amber. bhensonb (15967) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Aroma of malt, citrus and a bit of vanilla. Seems floral. Copper color with a vigorous beige head. Starts a bit thin, with malt quickly followed by citrus hop. Somewhat creamy. The citrus accompanies the malt through the finish. Really nice ESB. FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2007
nice clear copper color with a small head. Nice floral hoppy aroma and flavor. Easy drinking with a easy citrus and spice finish Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2007
One of the better one’s I sampled on my trip to San Diego. Poured a robust amber color with good head. Strong aroma and taste. Very hoppy with strong flavor of roasted malts. A good choice. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2008
