pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Clear burnt umbar color with a decent, though VERY ephemeral head. The aroma is weak, it smells of flowery hops, alcohol, and sweetness. It fills the mouth well and feels good going down, but the taste is just like it smells. The immediate aftertaste is bitter and a bit nutty, but then after a minute or so, the flowery taste comes back. Not auwful, but not great, average.

bottle. smells of flowers & citrus hops. Amber in color with a white head, which didnt last very long. Flavors of malt are present and a piney light citrus flavor. It has a nice mouthfeel with the malt flavors present up front but follows with that piney bitterness. Overall this beer is average at best.

Once again this is an ESB that is not all that Special or Bitter. It is hard to compare this to some of the great ESB, but when compared to other beers you can get out in Memphis it’s not so bad.

This medium body bitter is definately not so bitter at all, but that’s a good thing. Pretty good for a beer that one can find at the neighborhood grocery store.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Pours a golden copper with thin white head. Aroma of grains, malt and hop. Slightly sweet malt flavor with a bit of hoppiness. Nothing spectacular, but alright.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2006
Copper-amber color with a well carbonated head. Sweet citrusy presence complements the spicy hop aroma. Flavors are balanced between caramel sweet and vigorously bitter hops. Dry finish, pretty average.

2.8
stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours copper/brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, hops, and citrus. Flavor is sweet up front along with caramel, the piney hops and bitternish in the finish. Average and boring this beer is, easily forgettable.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Heady, very heady. Keg likely got shook. A rich orange-brown colour with off-white head. Light hopping, grainy taste, good palate except for the carbonation. Alcohol aftertaste.
