Bottle from sethdude. Pours bright, clear copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is fruit/floral. Or floral/fruit. Med body. Flavor is floral/fruit. I’m thinking plum skin. It’s on the dry side, hoppy, but not bitter. Violets come to mind. DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Slightly hazy copper. Aroma of malt, earth, some oxidation, honey-ish notes, a bit of caramel and light fruitiness. Sweetish flavor, malty, a bit oxidized (cardboard), with mild fruitiness and caramel and a finish with very mild bitterness. Medium-bodied. Tmoney99 (14946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate roasted malt and bitter aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer. crossovert (13833) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Tried cask + draft. Enjoyed draft better. Nice malty, bready, slightly herbal brew. Nice. Dogbrick (13748) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours a clear bronze-orange color with a medium thick and foamy white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, earthy hops and a touch of fruit. The finish is moderately sweet with a bready malt aftertaste. Decent ESB overall.
hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2013
On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amber color with a small sized off white head. Fruity, caramel, and brown sugar. All around malty and sweet. Sammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
A decent though not outstanding ESB. Hop bitterness in the aftertaste, I would like to get something more out front in taste and aroma. Lacy, dark golden. Medium mouthfeel. Very drinkable, nevertheless. deyholla (12189) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2013

Flavor has a nice grassiness with a bit of pine and sweet grains/light fruits. shrubber85 (11609) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle. Light toffee malt aroma. Amber with large head. Mildly sweet toffee malt and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Nice body. Very nice. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Amber pour with an off white head. Very pale flavored beer. Watery, not much hops, malty finish. Very mediocre. Bummer.
