On tap at Jackpot in Gallery Place, Washington, DC.
Clear, dark amber-brown with a khaki head and very good lacing.
Aroma of caramel, bread, earthy spicy hops, mango, citrus and peach.
Taste of toffee, brown bread, citrus, earthiness, peach and light tropical fruit with a malty finish.
Full/medium body and medium/low carbonization with a smooth, rich mouthfeel.
This is much hoppier than I remember--with more hops and bitterness than a typical ESB. For that matter, it's maltier than a typical ESB too. Overall, it's a delicious, full flavor ale even if not perfectly true to style.

Pours amber-red, two finger head with light lacing. Aroma is herbal and floral. Taste of nice roasted malt sweetness, very nice earthy/flowery bitterness from the hops. Note of bread and mango. Medium carbonation, body is on the high side of light. Finishes slightly bittersweet and dry. Good ESB. rumproasts (5592) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014

Pours an amber brown. Lots of lacing. Spices, malt, cloves, cinnamon on the nose. Sweet, citrus notes, straw. An okay ESB. jimski (49) - - JAN 16, 2014
Stoudts Scarlet Lady ESB is an English style ESB. It has an amber/reddish color and a medium head. It starts with a slightly sweet maltiness and finishes with a hoppy bitterness and a slight floral aroma.

A nice ESB. Not extremely bitter, but a good example of a flavorful PA local craft. Imaena (2328) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. This is a pretty lackluster bitter. The malt to hop balance was tilted to far towards the bitter for my taste. vlan1 (219) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Draft @ Stouds. Love this stuff.
Beautiful Dark Reddish amber color with scant head and mild hop aroma. Taste is clean with a solid but not beefy malt base and some hops. Hops are much noticable in the slightly bitter after taste. Smooth and light Mouthfeel. Hands down the most sessionable beer I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. I could drink 2 or 20 of these. Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Amber color. Bitter and nutty. Chewy. Earthy. Tea leaves. Easy drinking. Nice.
