3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours one finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is like a candy factory and pine trees. Interesting, but nice.
The taste is mostly a moderately dry bitter flavor. Good balance and straightforward.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Overall a solid ESB.
22oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a white head. Caramel, malty, bready, sweet with a bitter finish. Not bad.

This beer has a beautiful copper color. It has a smokey malty aroma and flavor. I get a subtle flavor of caramel also.

~Sweet bready caramel malt aroma with medium toastiness. Mouth watering malty aroma.
~Pours a clear golden amberish color with small lasting wispy white head.
~Rich malty roasted toast flavor with caramel sweetness and good dose of earthy bitter hops.
~Medium bodied with medium CO2, lingering earthy bitterness.
~Very Good ESB. A bit too bitter in my opinion. Really enjoyed the maltiness. Glad this brewery is close to home. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Nutty and alcoholic smelling. Clear amber with very thin head. Syrupy bitter followed by a nutty bitter. The bitter keeps on well after the sip.

Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours hazy copper/amber with a slight foamy beige head. Roasty malt aroma. Med body. Flavor is fruity hop over roasty malt. I’ll agree it fits the style. Nice to drink.

Copper orange in color... Aroma of bready malts, light hops... Flavor of biscuity malts, English hops, lingers long on the palate... Solid, well done
