Bottle. Pours a light red with a hint of gold to it. Very nice head. Aroma is of malt, very sweet with a hint of alcohol. Body is very thin. Flavor is sweet malt, almost no hops very smooth. Bit of alcohol at the end. Decent brew. Not bad, not great. Good price. Very fresh.

Wow has this beer changed. I remember loving this beer "back in the day" when it was in the short bottles and brewed in WA. The color and taste are the big changes, it used to be a very orange amber now a yellow amber. Taste used to be a good balance of caramel malts and west coast hops, now it has a musty hop taste. It has been awhile since I tried the tall bottle version, I had forgotten how bad this beer has fallen. RIP.

No noticeable aroma. Flavor was moderately bitter and enjoyable. I found the palate to be too flat for my taste. A very average ESB.

Bottle. Pale copper color with nice off-white head. Aroma of hops, not very strong or complex. The flavor is of hops, with a little bit of malty sweetness -- not overpowering. Feels a bit thin.

Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Drank from the bottle from a sixer I bought to watch the super bowl. Cant comment on color, but carbonation was light and flavor seemed to be less than it was a few years ago. Still a great session beer!

Burst of grain flavor with the first sip, that is a bit overwhelming, but starts to grow on you. Average amber

Bottle pours amber with medium tan head. Light aroma is of sweet caramel. Taste is fairly sweet with hints or honey, caramel, and malts.

Good but not outstanding. Noticeable maltiness, nice color, avoids being too sweet.

Has a little bitterness, tastes pretty good after Ive finished half a beer and my mouth has become acclimated to its slightly sharp taste.
