Cakes (422) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy auburn - a touch of brown with highlights of copper. The head pours thick and soft, and it leaves tons of lace on a pint glass. The aroma is a pleasant mix of fruit, caramel and bready malts, and herbal, perfumy hops - almost spicy.. The flavor starts similarly - a soft, slightly toasted, slightly fruity, bready malt flavor with a touch of herbal English hops. A little bit of dark toast and caramel enters on the sides of the tongue about halfway back. Here also enters a touch more of spicy, dry hops. The finish is well-balanced and somewhat dry with a blend of light, delicate malt with just a drop of earthy hops

Reddish amber pour, clear with white foam. The hops and malt are both light and slightly grassy. The body is light as is the fizz. Slightly sharp notes, but easy to drink. July 2008

As far as English Style Bitters go, this beer isnt bad. It is just sweet enough and has just a tad of hop bitter to it; so basically it is easily quaffable and would be welcome any time I need a refreshing beer. There is no unpleasant aftertaste. There is nothing wrong with this beer, it is a decent ESB. But of course if I wanted to drink an interesting beer this would not be my choice as it just doesnt hold up to the stronger styles.

More sour than bitter. Pales in comparison to todays hoppy offerings. Not for me.

Jabah (441) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
This wasnt one of my favorites from Stoudts, but I am not the biggest fans of extra bitters. The hops are the main theme going on, with of course, an extra bitter aftertaste. It is still a smooth, crisp beer....on the lighter side overall. Dark orange-light copper color. Better than average, but pretty much an across the board 7.

Pours a perfectly clear pale copper, the color of cider. Super-effervescent, tons of bubbles. Big toasted beige, foamy head. Smells of grass, oranges, caramel malts, toffee--not your regular ESB, but not bad. The taste, however, didnt really follow the smell. It began with a roasted malt character, followed by a light grassiness and citrus, like orange peel. Like eating a handful of earth: the grassiness mixed with the earthiness of the malt. Bitterness hits in the back, after the swallow, but is so light as to hardly be noticeable. Somewhat sweet, actually. Where it really loses it for me is the mouthfeel: light and watery. Light carbonation is nice, but the drink is so insubstantial. I like the balance of roasted malts and hops, though.

Pours a ruby color with a lacy white head. Notes of jam, copper, biscuits, burnt malt, and brown sugar. Grainy mouthfeel.
