MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Pretty much a standard ESB. Not outstanding but still a good brew. Very consistent with a soft pinch at the end. belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Draft - Not much in the way of hop aroma. Nice bitterness throughout. Finishes to the dry side. A decent bitter. bb (10210) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Draft. Copper color without much aroma. The flavor is very mild and has a bit of a fruit/malt combination. Very little bitterness. Makes for an easy drinking beer, but nothing inspiring. djmcfar (64) - Ixonia, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2003
In answer to your question (WISEGUY527 "I used to love this. Did they change or did I?", a friend of mine just told me that they have been bought out by Anheiser Bush (this is one of his favs - and I just told him about this site - expecting Vince to join soon) Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Not bad. A little light and fizzy. Tasted alot like a blonde ale more that a bitter.

I used to love this. Did they change or did I? Looks great ... beautiful golden amber; not at al ESB in appearance, of course. Inoffensive nose, middling sort of taste. Too thin, not enough malt, not enough hops, not enough bitterness ... FlacoAlto (4266) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Bottled on 08/12/03. Slightly Hazy amber gold color, pours with an off-white head that is fairly persistant but with largish bubbles. Aroma is of a hoppy, floral, citrus one, with a bit of sweetness thrown in the mix. A nutty malty taste mixed with a solid hop flavor. Finishes with a bit of bitterness and a certain dryness. This beer has a fullness of body to it that coats one's mouth as you sip it. archstanton (105) - mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2003
tastes like coffee to me and is way to thick and way to dark for my taste buds. VAYankee (354) - Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Copper colored(and moderately transparent) with white head. Aroma has both malt and floral hops. Starts out with an acidic bitterness blended with just a little maltiness. Finishes dry and slightly bitter. A pretty average beer. cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Had this on tap. It is a nice dark amber color. The taste is of hops with bitter aftertaste. Overall not a lot of complexity to this beer. Above average though.
