Light alcohol taste. Tad sweet with faint caramel. Half of me thinks it’s a great average beer, half of me wants to say it’s nothing special. I like it but I could see your average beer connoisseur to think it’s bland and not tasty. Well worth the buck I got it for. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malts, toast, and bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more maltiness. Somewhat one dimensional. DrunkSanta410 (940) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Amber pour, lacy white head. Aroma is faint caramel, toast. Taste is toasted malts, caramel, mild bitterness. Below average. jb (3253) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2015
On tap at pappasitos. Standard amber color. Clean crisp and dry. Drinkable but not great. onceblind (9676) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Clear copper with a foamy white head. Lovely Amber biscuity nose with a grassy hop and a hint of butterscotch syrup. Nice smooth flavor of dry amber malt and cracker and a little earthy grassy bitterness. Great balance and earthy flavor. Could drink that at a picnic or a sports game.

Canned in htown. Cloudy medium amber pour. Caramel, a bit over malted, mild bitters. Meh. beastmaster (381) - Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Draft. Light orange amber color Little head. Aroma is hard to pick out over this bar glass. Tangerines rhine, bitters, some hops, medium body. Easily drinkable. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 28, 2014
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell had a grassy sort of bittered caramel edge to a light nutty bitter hoppy aspect.
The taste was somewhat sweet but had a decent bitter edge of the malts.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still good for the style and for me. Lingering bitter grassy and grainy finish.
Overall, decent ESB, could probably do this again. Tommynh (119) - - MAY 11, 2014
Sort of plain, nice color and a good aftertaste but I'm more an IPA guy so it didn't do much for me. They had 3 different types on draft so figured I'd try it out
