Dark copper pour. Toasted and sweet malt. Light earth and some pine. Sweet overall. Solid drinking beer. (Draught at Silver City’s 20th Anniversary fest) 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Amberish, slight haze, moderate frothy sand colored head, fairly nice lacing.   Semi-sweet
malty nose, very slight fruitiness, a bit of biscuit.   Smooth maltiness on the tongue, no real bitterness, slight
sweet malt base with some biscuit and pale fruitiness.   This is pretty tasty!   Not a lot of umph, but it
feels somewhat thick.   Flavorful without anything detracting.   Seems maltier than most, and less bitter.
I can dig this one.   Wish I had another. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2010
This was a really nice ESB. It had a ton of flavor and a big body but wasnt hard to drink at all. Very enjoyable. theisti (4126) - Kansas, USA - JUL 6, 2009
22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington. The label was marked as Big Dady’s ESB with an ABV listed as 8%. Pour is darker golden, with a 1/2 inch white head that falls quick. Aroma of bright grainy hop and toasty bready malt. Fresh and clean. Taste is the toasty malt, with a nice grainy slight resin hop edge towards the end. Palate is medium thin, clean, medium to high carbonation - taste gets a little muddled in the finish. Nice enough. Based on the taste, I don’t think this was actually 8%, the 5.3% listed here seems more reasonable. robforbes (2244) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2009
pours a semi-clear orange with a thin white head, and some lacing.
smell of grain, malt, a touch of citrus, and some hops in the back.
taste is dry grain, slightly bitter, a touch of citrus, and a funky aftertaste, ends a little dry.

Bomber. Pours clear orange with a towering and lacy off-white head. Citrus, tofee, fruit and floral hops. Medium body. Surprisingly, this beer is nearly still. Was that intended? Lightly sweet caramel, nut and pine taste with a crisp, earthy finish. Not quite what I was expecting for an ESB, but I’m OK with that! trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2009
This is certainly worth more than a 3.1! Pours a caramel-copper color with an average-sized head. This one is dominated by intensely floral hops (seriously almost like you’re smelling a flower), with some citrus and a weak malt presence. Think of a hop tea that was carbonated and had honey added. Slightly yeasty / biscuity finish. Perfectly drinkable. Enniskillen (2055) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Amber thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine, floral and citrus hops, light malt.
Taste is a nice hoppiness, smooth crystal malt, and pale malt. carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2009
dark orangey aroma is malts and mild licorice. very smooth palate. taste slight sweet with moderate bitterness. snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2009
UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 On cask at Naked City. Looks like a glass of iced tea- cloudy brown with a thin layer of large clear bubbles on top. Smells weakly of citrus- orange and lemon. Hops show up a little more in the taste, along with some brown sugar. Decent finish, but the flatness of this knocks it down a notch. I’d give it another shot in a keg or bottle.
