3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at brewpub in Frederick, MD 2/26/12. Pours a nice amber color with medium head and good lacing. Light hop and malt aromas. Decent flavor of bitters and bread and some peppery notes.
When this was available, hands down favorite beer to drink here. Nice caramel notes, with a citrus bitterness to compliment the sweetness upfront. Cheers! FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a large foamy off white head that left incredible lacing. The aroma was malty and tart with a citric presence.The flavor was bitter, tart and tangy with citrus and some perfume. Medium length bitter citrus and perfume finish. Medium body. Meh.

Bitter but not over the top. A very nice ESB with 6.6 alcohol. Very easy to drink. Highly recommend.

Draft. Pours clear amber with creamy, off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is bread and cookie malt with some light fruit and spice notes. Flavor is heavy malt matching the nose with some light hops and fruit esters towards the end; dry finish. Medium body with low carbonation and warmth.

Clear orange color, and the smell of english hops and light malt. Tastes very grainy and bitter. The flavor doesn’t really match the smell. Metallic finish. Travlr (25208) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2012

One of their better beers. Mild hop aroma and a stronger flavor than the others I tried. Drake (13942) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2011
