Yes, I rated meguiar’s leftover beer, I admit I have a problem. I got the yeasty part, so my rating may be a bit different. The part I had though was awesome. It smelled like candied caramel, strong and sharp. The taste was more like watered down brown sugar. Kind of thick feel to it but a medium-light body.

1 pt. bottle. Clear medium brown with a very spare off white head, yet surprisingly sticky lace. Fruity, brown sugar aroma, some faint vanilla. Smooth, medium body, rich mouthfeel, very light carbonation. Good balance between the sweet malt flavors and spicy bitterness. Finishes fairly dry with a lingering gently bitterness. edden (925) - cow- lumbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2008
1/18/08: Bottle. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Tea brown body accompanied by a tea-like nose. Mild flavored and bitter. Pretty straightforward and good.
Pours lightly cloudy amber with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Aroma of toffee, alefruits, plums, earthy toasted malts, Taste is lightly toasted malt, caramel, fuggles and pears. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly sticky with soft carbonation. Not too shabby, an enjoyable beer. downender (8584) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 17/1/08. Orange coloured with a decent, off-white head. Caramel and red fruit aroma with some earthy hops. Full mouth feel with more malt and a long bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

bottle ... Very malty, you can really pull out the Maris flavor. Hop characteristic is weak but allows the malt to dominate. Toasty flavor with an appreciable ESB character. NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle. A very drinkable ESB. This beer is a burnt amber in color, with little to no head. It has a floral aroma with a good crispness. The flavor is fairly malty. There are also hints of molasses, and a well rounded toasty character. Enjoyable. Lowe1983 (1589) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is of toasted malts, caramel malts, floral and citrus hops. Light bodied with not too much of a lingering flavor. brianprentiss (701) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2007

bottle from brick store pub, decatur, ga Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Lightly hazy dark copper pour covered by an irregular and small white head. Sandy and lightly earthy nose with a pleasantly minty hop twist that contrast with the toasty and biscuity malts whose sweetness escapes the hops’ radar. Medium bodied, moderately high carbonation. Good.
