Cask. Smooth and creamy with a big white head. A little funky aroma. Grassy and herbal and a little more fruity for an esb. Cybercat (6444) - Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Taps clear coppery with a fairly thick buff head that leaves good lacing. Aroma offers subtle fruity and malty notes. Flavor adds bitter, woody hops and a snip of caramel to the mix. Mouthfeel features good body, good fizz, and a woody finish. A toast to yer Uncle Bob. Or Eric. Or whatever. eRock_2013 (534) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2015
Enjoyed this fresh from a growler from the brewery in Asheville, absolutely delicious!
Poured a ruby/ cherry wood brown color, with white foamy head, solid lacing. Aroma and taste of rich caramel malt, some wood, light solid nutty flavor, earthy hops with a twang. Very complex and a fine rendition of the style. Very clean, pleasant lightly bitter finish. Very very good! I would seek this out in Asheville, and next time I'll try some of Oysterhouse's other offerings! snoworsummer (6404) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2015

Draft at the source during RBWG. Hazy amber color, white head. Aroma of earthy toffee. taste is caramel biscuit. Not bad. b3shine (9359) - Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Draft to taster at OysterHouse. Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent copperish brown with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with mild notes of hops and caramel. Tastes like it smells with a bit more hops. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2014

Taster at the brewpub. Pours a clear, dead amber with no head. Notes of caramel, citrus, pine, pineapple, grass, spice, and earth. Medium-bodied, with low carbonaiton and a resinous, juicy mouthfeel. Good ESB; pretty hoppy, so not really traditional. But good. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
