Draft at Barcade. Pours a coppery gold with white head. Nose is yeasty, bready, light EKG notes & bread. On taste, carbonation is soft and nice. Very bready taste to it with light hop character. Pretty decent, albeit standard. Okay. Nickls (2617) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2010

Poured with a decent white head that didn’t last too long. Somewhat hazy golden deep orange color. Bit of a fruit aroma, with some citrus hoppiness. Not a whole lot to detect here, and very subtle. Solid hop bitterness, and dry maltiness. A bit of dried fruit in the taste. Thinner MF, and decent carbonation. Bone dry finish. Very drinkable with some good solid ESB qualities, and definitely the dry finish demands another

Growler. Copper hue, slightly hazy, nice white head and lovely carbonation. Nose of dough, ripe fruit with hints of piny hops. Medium, smooth body. Bready malt, ripe fruit and earthy hops are nicely balanced on the palate. Long, earthy finish. Nice session beer. l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Pours a clear amber. Light aroma of malt and earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt dominated by green grapes. Drinkable, but not quite enjoyable. madmitch76 (26467) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2009
5th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Fruity but slighty acrid dry ESB. Not actuallt that bitter. Drinkable if unremarkable.

Growler, drank the whole dam thing too. Pours an amber body with a tan head. Bitter earth y tones, a lighter dried fruit sweetness with a subtle note of toffee and caramel. Decent. drtth (30) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Almost burnt orange and very clear. Thin head gone fairly soon. Aroma has caramel and light toffee and spicy hops. Flavor begins with malt caramel and toffee flavor. Then the spicy hops appear. The finish is softly bitter, spicy and dry. Good beer and very easy to drink. Christian (13932) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
Pale amber with a small white head. Fruity aroma with a hint of green apple. Sweet and fruity flavour. jmm635 (1017) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Poured amber in color with an orange hue. Average sized sticky white head with good lacing. Sort of a sweet aroma, moderate amount of hops. Similar taste. Had this on cask so it was very soft on the palate, low carbonation, smooth and very easy to drink. Nothing special, but keep ’em flowing! dmac (6592) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Growler from Spirits RB. Pours a good looking orange/amber with an average to large white fluffy head. Aroma is grassy, tangerine and baby aspirin. Flavor still carries that baby aspirin and tangerine combo and add in some spoiling raw dough. Not very good.
