Upon first taste of this classic ale, Simon was whisked back to happy memories of his favorite English country pub -- The Cuckoo Inn. This rich, malty copper-colored beer with its lightly spiced hop profile is our version of this very special style loved by ale-drinking Englishmen the world over!

Pours copper. Good malty flavor, not too powerful though. Refreshing. Would have again

From a counter-pressure fresh growler filled at the brewery 7 days ago: The aroma on this has plenty of nice melanoidin malt aroma with toffee and light burnt caramel. Really nice aroma. Transparent glistening amber-colored body present with a medium, fairly strong light tan head present. Starts with plenty of toasted malts, followed by a touch of caramel sweetness, and a little toffee. Some metallic bitter hop flavors come through in the middle, and last through the finish. A little dry towards the end. If I close my eyes, I can almost imagine drinking this on the other side of the pond. Really flavorful and inspired.

Sigmund (7228) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2015
Shared 650 ml bottle, as Olí Republic Pub Ale (English-style Ale), in Nevada City. Drank it too cold from a frosted glass. Copper colour, large off-white head. Aroma and flavour of a typical English bitter with toffee notes, just with some more alcohol. Fullerís ESB is probably what they try to emulate here - this one is not quite as good as Fullerís, but a nice try.

bhensonb (14881) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Bomber as "Pub Ale" from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Words on bottle pretty well match words in the above description. ABV matches. Pours dark copper with a creamy beige head. Light floral and roast malt aromas. Med body. Flavor seems to have a touch of chocolate, but also mild roast malt and some floral. Decent drink.

"An ok bitter. Nice session brew, nothing less, nothing more. The type of low key balanced brew that is nice on a beer engine, but doesnít quite stand up to the bigger styles, especially when doing a flight :) pleasant, though, and fairly true to style."

Copper colored, small head, mild aroma. Fairly sweet with a dry finish. Not as good as other ESBs.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Very straightforward ESB, little more on the maltier side of things. Bits of biscuits with a light plum. Tiny forest hop finish.

Zymurgeist2 (2149) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 25, 2012
On draft at the brewhouse in a sampler. Pours a clear copper color with an off-white head. Not much aroma here - some slight malt peeking through. Flavor is rich biscuity with a nice, slight earthy hop finish.
