Has a nice amber color and a light hop smell. Taste is of hops and finishes slightly bitter. Overall not a bad ESB, but I expect this style to be a bit more bitter. Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2002
Cask conditioned. More sour than bitter. Very interesting though. Sour apple, fruity, almost some vinegar hints in there. Very nice bitter finish. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2002
NERAX ’02 cask: Heavy malt flavor that was covered by a great hoppiness. No head, dark orange color, syrupy-watery texture, nice and bitter. My favorite at Wed-Thurs NERAX ’02. Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2002
Wow very good. malt and toffee aroma, and full flavor of the same. Rich, creamy, with a subtle hops presence. Also a slight sour taste that is very nice.
