I liked this one - a creamy tasting ESB. Thinner malts but well balanced, you wouldn't expect the alcohol content. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2002
I know this is good, despite not being a big fan of Eng. Strongs. Fits style fairly well...quite frothy head, wonderful reddish color. Super malty, and the ringwood + 7.7% makes it quite sweet. Went well with super peppery teriyaki steak. Thanks Jayme. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Rich ruby gold, next to no head. Malty nose - some chocolate, dark fruits. Nicely h opped. Rich malt up front and then a huge bitter acaramel w. dark fruits - kind of strange. Bif (2259) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle- Pours aruby brown color with a small head and bit of lacing. Nice aroma of caramel, a bit fruity with some spice. Taste of some caramel sweetness, a bit of fruit and some spice. A nice easy bitterness and a clean finish. fairly mdium, smooth and quite dry. No hint of the 7.7 ABV. Well balanced. very enjoyable ale. Another good beer from a regional brewer whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Shiny orange-toned amber body with a modest, sudsy off-white head. Aroma is like cinnamon toast. Flavor of tea-like malt, butterscotch and some pleasant warm spice. Moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a medium body and notable diacetyl. Like a strong bitter or winter warmer. This is the best offering that I encountered from this brewery, but I expect even more from a beer that has Pride of MILF in its name.

April 2006 - Poured a coppery color, small head and little lacing (I liked the color, though). Mouthfeel of a dry white whine...made my lips pucker a bit. Odd. Caramel-like flavor, with some mild spicey fruit, a touch of alcohol and a decent hop bite finish. Not bad. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Rich caramel aroma with hints of banana (a bit like bananas Foster). Flavor is medium sweet with a slight hint of metal and a drying hop finish. Interesting beer. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2007
Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is malty, and fruity. Flavor is malty slightly fruity, with a light bitter finish. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Their best beer bar none.An nice English strong ale that can hold it's own with soem great winter seasonals.Hoppy,fruity,malty and at 7.7% warming but without much alcohol notes. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2003
Dark bronze with a fair head. Alcohol, bready yeast and massive malts make up the nose. A really fine nose it is. The alcohol is evident at first sip, but in no way is it overpowering. Sweet malts are strong but not overly sour sweet like most doppelbocks. Bitter at the end with a lingering alcohol effect. Very good! Go Cubs!!!
