Drank on tap at Long Valley Brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy, amber color, with a little bit of white head. Smells sweet with slight rye aromas. A decent ESB, nothing special. RGDave (113) - Lebanon, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2011
This brew pours golden brown, with a cotton colored head and some opacity. The front end of the taste is a nice, mild breadyness and tangy but gentle hop character, with a bitter finish, however the mouthfeel left me desiring a bit more carbonation. Very smooth, almost too smooth. A decent session beer. Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Pours copper with film of tan head, it dissipated quickly. Aroma is fruity, citrus hops and some resin. TAste is sweet with minimal bitterness, much sweeter then expected. Dry finish. Not bad.

Nitrogen dispensed, making it do that cool trick where the head and beer settle out from each other once it’s poured. The head on this beer had the consistency of wet cement. You could draw your initials in it and leave the beer to set and read them 100 years later. Nice bit of bittering hops, but nothing else was really even noticeable because that head was just staring at me. Huge points for head. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2005

Seriously, the head was friggin unstoppable. A finger poked into it left a dent that remained nearly to the end of the pint. I would give it 10 for appearance if possible. Aroma was decent but not spectacular considering how it looked. Taste was bittery. Hops providing some attack. Seems like previous ratings from the last offering bemoan lack of hops but this time around, they are there.

Not super flavorful, but at least better than some of their regular beers. Light copper color and a slight nutty-peachy-earth smell. No head. Not too cold. Good carbonation level. Starts and finishes dry with some fruity juiciness in the middle. Hops stated rather well. Pretty good. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2004
On tap at Brewpub. Clear reddish orange in color with a tan head. Fruity aroma and malty. It says its dryhopped but the hops are not noticeable. Sweet and malty flavor. Ok. MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Tap at the brewpub. Don’t be fooled by the previous two ratings, for they are for the Best Bitter. Clear reddish orange, light tan head. aroma is fruity and malty, lacking in hops. Flavor is sweet and malty, with some hop bitterness. Not terrible, but lacking in character. iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Cask pulled at the brew pub. A mellow cloudy yellow color, fine aroma, subtle carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Very good and enjoyable. I concur. Their best effort. Even got the temperature right! Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Cask. Flavorful and brewed tradionally with a slight fruit (dried peach) taste. Very low carbonation with a nice creamy head. Their best beer in my opinion.
