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, I’d get this one again for sure. beerbaaron (2046) - Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Dark Amber. Frothy white head - lasting. Aroma is very malty, sweet, some citrus. Crisp, medium body. Has a little ’tang’ to it. Sweet, malty, flavor matches aroma. not too bitter or dry really. not at all harsh. good balance. MarinEvelyn (868) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2013
malty, citrusy scent. Maybe some type of grass. Good head, dark amber color. Lemony, malty, citrus flavor. fairly smooth and refreshing. jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2013

This is an excellent beer, from the first sip to the last. I can’t believe the price point or the taste. I’m not sure of the ESB thing, but it has a light, crisp tang and is quite dry. Excellent. I’ve rated a good number of beers and this one is high on the list of surprises.

Decent brew. Medium white head quickly abating to a slight lace. Amber-copper color. Some spicy hop aroma. Slight citrus up front finishing with a light bitterness. A little toffee flavor. Medium-light body. KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear reddish brown with a light orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) light tan creamy head that had great retention and produced excellent sheeting of lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet dark bread malt and a earthy Brett yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (lime), a mild spiciness and a slight fruity ester.
The taste was malty sweet with notes of caramel and citrus from the start, and then progresses with a slight tart yeasty presence, a mild fruitiness and a light bitter peppery ending. The flavor lasted an average time following consumption with a mild tart spicy taste left to linger.
Mouthfeel was just under medium in body and extremely creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall this was an exceptionally well made brew that was bold, flavorful and possessed a nice sweet, spicy tart flavor. And you gotta love the name...

22oz bottle. Small head, almost clear, dull copper color. Decent aroma, strong, kind of sweet and a little nutty, some berries. The taste is different! Medium carbonation, a little sweet on the nose, bitter throughout. Points for originality. cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap. Dark amber color, thin tiny head. Nice malty nose. Crisp clean attack and a good finish. RobertDale (6851) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 13, 2012
22 ounce bottle. Pours dark copper with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, and caramel. Taste is malt, citrus, pine, and caramel. Some hops bitterness at the finish. Nice.
