What a uniquely strange beer. The smell nput me on my ass. It is malt, wheat, grass, star fruit, alcohol and molasses. Taste is even stranger. Strawberries, peaches, grapefruit, yeast, grass. This really a unique brew.

This one is well named because it tastes like crotch. Would make a pretty nice sour ale had they added a bit of lemon flavor. As is, its kind of like sweat mixed with seltzer.

Reviewed from notes verbatim on 9/23/10 A: Low head, but persistent bubbles creates a small foam cup. Brilliant clarity. Copper color. S: Sweet, hints of caramel, floral: tulip. Good ESB smell. T: The beer is an ESB for sure and has a sweet tone to it. I really like this ESB. M: Well balanced medium body with moderate carb. D: I really enjoy the sessionability of this beer. Laughing Dog usually spends their time making high intensity beers. This one is subtle and nice. Strong work. Serving type: bottle 03-18-2011

bottle. Pours hazy rich amber with small off-white head. Dark, sweet aroma of malt and fruit with a clear alcohol note. Sourish and bitter flavour of hops with a note of yeast and malt. Watery but avceptable, although not well-balanced. Sourish, nearly bitter aftertaste. OK.

Cloudy orange pour, nice head. Aroma is of a german wheat/ hefewiesen beer. Taste is wheat, sugar and clove. Not what I expected for esb however I like it. Very smooth.

mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Pours an amber color with an off white head that leaves decent lacing. Aromas of honey, wheat, and a little malt. Flavors of malt, wheat and sweet fruit (grapes and apple) a pleasant complex flavor.

Nice beer. Had at a beer geeks tasting. Rated this beer using a different program and unfortunately I'm not able to transfer my comments here.

Aroma is sweet licorice and mint with a hint of peppery spice...yeasty too...I'm scared I may smell a bit of dog poop too. Of course I still tasted this stinky amber cloud of a beer despite its confusing olfactory introduction. And...tangy spice with yeast and peppers. A bit of sweetness. Strange. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like the crotch the dog is sniffing on the label. Consistent with the crotch theme, it tastes like nuts. Not a bad beer, but not really my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle, love the name of this one!! Pours an amber color with a nice fruty and malty scent to it. Taste is slightly fruity up front with English bittering hop flavor in the aftertaste. Nice ESB, Id get this one again for sure.
