3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good for an ESB, which I usually dont care for. Not much to the aroma. Medium hop notes carry through a solid caramel-malt body.
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF
Draught at My Brothers Bar. Low but lasting white fluffy head. Hazy dark brown body. Weak fruity malt caramel aroma. Highly carbonated berries spicy flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness and a long finish. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUN 28, 2016
16.9 ounce bottle. Pours an unclear copper with a thin beige head. Taste is of malt, caramel, some grapefruit, pine, resin and grass. Slightly cleaner aroma. Has a decent body with a slight dry and bitter finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable, but a little underwhelming. DenverLogan (1219) - LA, California, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Poured from a bottle into a Delirium Noel chalace. Pours amber with head and lace. Aroma of toffee, peanut brittle, malts. Significant carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, grapefruit rind, minerals, malts. Overall decent for style. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 18, 2015

Bottle into a glass. Pours deep copper/brown. Persistent off-white head. Aroma of light caramel, roasted nuts, sugar. Taste is the same...nutty, caramel, lightly bitter, hints of grass. ravenwater (8) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2014 does not count
Deep copper, clear. Light beige head persists well. Aroma: Light cereal note-not unpleasant, moderate caramel, light toffee, aroma hops not really apparent. Flavor: Buttery medium caramel, low pleasant fruity esters, earthy floral hops flavor enriches, Has perhaps a hint of chocolate malt here. Has typical elements of ESB in pretty good balance - no real complaints here. Bittering level is right - bitterness lingers in aftertaste as does slight spiciness (hops). Improves as it warms and malty qualities come forward. Definitely worth a repeat for me (I love British beers in general). BJCP drjay44 (3713) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head over a slightly hazy medium amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is light cereal, mild toffee/caramel.....taste is moderate roasted grain, cereal, toast, biscuit, slight sweetness of a toffee.caramel, finishing with a moderately bitter, non American hop tone....mouth feel, medium body, minimal astringency. This is a fairly typical ESB, with all of the usual characteristics. It is a bit unclean. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7 ajnepple (6625) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Dark gold appearance with an off-white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of butterscotch, caramel malts, toffee and light bitter hops. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with an average body. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
On tap @ Bull & Bush. Amber pour with a white head. Butter, toast, and candy. Plum, raisin, and more butter on the nose. Weird spicy hops and some BO. Flavor is so damn buttery. Sweet, sugary, and toasty. Plum, raisin, and spicy hops. Weird funk and grass. Blech.
