Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright bronze color with a medium sized yellow-tan head. The aroma is sweet, nutty and has a moderate floral and fruity hop presence. The flavor is crisp fruity hops followed by a tangy and nutty malt base with a bitter hoppy finish. Pleasant. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2006
Bottled. Amber color with small head. Sweet and malty aroma with notes of toffee and orange. Sweetish flavor with malt, minerals, toffee, orange and melon. Mild bitterness. Basic lightly hopped ale. Mrthirstyneck (341) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2006

Bottled. Fresher than the last Left Hand i had for sure. Good lacing and a nice looking beer - copper orange. Great aroma of malt, peat, caramel and yank hops. Malt and hops fairly well balanced throughout but perhaps a touch to astringent to finish. A touch of grapefruit but overall not enough fruit for me. Not bad for the style.

(Bottle) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, nuts, and caramel. Flavor of malt, nuts, and caramel. HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Pours a clear medium amber color with an off white head and sticky lacing. Malt and grass in the nose. Smooth and balanced malty flavor. Good beer. Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Deep copper-brown color with a thin head. Mildly sweet caramel malt flavors and low carbonation. The finish has just enough hops to prevent it from being cloyingly sweet. Not bad for the style, but ESB just isn’t that exciting. lunatic77 (14) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 13, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 not being a big fan of ESB’s, i was not excited about this one. but after trying it in colorado on tap, i was pleasantly surprised. this one is copper with a small white head diminishing quickly. the flavor was hoppy and malty but smoothly bitter. overall a well-balanced ESB.

Bottle. aroma af hops with no malt. medium bitterness. Tastes like a really good pale ale to me. I guess I can’t taste the hard water.
