Bottled (thanks omhper!). Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, grass and some fruits. Flavour is fruity and grassy hops. Quite earthy and caramelly too as it warms up a bit. omhper (25139) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Bottled. Hazy amber with rich head. Lovely fresh hoppy citrus aroma. Light-medium bodied with crisp malt character, but cookie malt distinguishes it from most American Pale Ales. Hops dominate thoroughly. Aromatic and resiny with bergamott and and grapefruit - this is way more US West Coast style than English. The malt character however is more inviting than most American microbrews, making it a more multifacetted beer. Long, resiny bitter finish. The best new Sierra Nevada beer I had in many years!

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of joergen/BelJohansen. Clear, deep golden with an off-white head. Fresh English aroma hops in the nose. Medium body, some nutty accents and caramel with a fairly bitter finish. Actually I find it rather close to a genuine British ESB. 140408 cgarvieuk (24515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle at home .. amber ... slight sweet big pale ale hop ... heavy carbonation ... heavy bitterness ... little pine ... not my thing. Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2009
Sampled this ESB at my college pub during senior year. The brew has a lovely hop aroma. The color was copper red with a light head. Flavor was rich, mildly bitter and crisp. Tasty beer with a nice alcohol content.
