Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops, caramel malts, and a very slight hint of alcohol. Flavor is a little week with the caramel malts coming out pretty strong. Light floral hops as well. Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy golden colour, with a white retained head of one-quarter inch. Mild malty and faint hoppy aroma. Above average mouthfeel, understated hoppiness and a balance that was good wth a meal. Very good drinkability. Very pleasant for the style.

medium brown, mild head. nose of some floral hops and medium crystal malt. moderate bitterness with crystal malt before nice floral hops. overall the residual sweetness ends up being a bit high, though it is drinkable, a bit sweet for the style Tmoney99 (14492) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear dark amber hue with a large frothy off-white head that Mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium aroma of hops, malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt, hops with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good brew with a steak from the grill.

July 17-19, 2008: Buckeye Yuppie ESB has lots of fresh citrusy and slightly minty hops in the aroma. The flavor is soft ans has a slightly buttery flavor. This beer has a hazy, bright copper color, light beige-colored foamy head, and a smooth, mellow medium body. Overall it is a good ESB with more hops than expected.
Draught sample (45 IBU, 5.5% ABV)at Skipper’s Bar & Grille in Athens, Ohio during Ohio Brew Week 2008. Rating #17 for this beer.
Sample at Neil’s HSC initation. The beer pours a hazy bright orange color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel and earthy malt. Medium, clean body with flavors of caramel malt, light hops and a bit of bread. The finish is sweet and malty with a lingering caramel aftertaste. Overall an average ESB that skews too far on the sweet side. JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2009
