Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Poured from bottle to glass. Crystal clear amber hue with fizzy white head that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma is malty, caramel, hay, chocolate, sugary, resiny hop, citrus, melon. Mouthfeel is a fantastic balance of medium body and carbonation which is very smooth. Very sweet initially with a nice hop bitterness that follows. Slight CO2 and good bitterness in the finish really round out well. Overall, this is a really nice play on an ESB. It isn’t quite traditional "English" style but the Northwest-style hopping works really well. mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
A clear golden beer with a thick orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with grassy notes of hops. The flavor is very malty with notes of newly harvested grain, leading to a dry straw finish. ttoadee (1476) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Clear, light copper pour, creamy but thin head. Nose is malt and hops blended. Lightly bitter. Middle is sweeter; bread with butter that coats the tongue, bananas and soft tropical fruits. Finish shows carbonation and subtle hop exit. Eberndt (235) - - DEC 15, 2013
Nice copper color and happy aroma. Caramel malts are also present with a slight fruit aftertaste. Wife liked it. wlittle (18) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle to glass at room temp. Pours a deep copper colour and has a citrus aroma. Slightly hopped and very drinkable.

Hints of orange citrus and bread blend with the caramel malts to make a tasty beer. Chadski4 (170) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Malty, biscuity aroma with a deep reddish copper color. Aberage seasonal with a little bite in the palate. Ericular (1016) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber with decent head that lasts a little while. Not much lacing, but this looks great at first. Aroma is sweet with caramel and a little citrus. Taste is moderately sweet with some citrus in the middle, and a pleasant aftertaste with just a touch of hop bitterness. Fades pretty quickly and leaves you wanting more. Super drinkable. jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Tap at metlife stadium. Clear copper pour. Nose has floral hops and biscuit. Sweet caramel malt finish. Thin body. Not too bad boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Draft at beer fest. Pours clear copper with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is light floral. The taste is medium bitter with a nice sweet finish. Decent brew but could use more hop presence.
