COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bitter Druid ESB is a new twist on an old favorite. Our Americanized ESB blends American 2-row pale malt with choice British specialty malts to create a rich malt start that is followed by a crisp, American hop finish. This beer is a wonderful gateway to the world of hops due to it’s delicate balance and rich array of flavors.

Draft. Clear golden color. Aroma of straw. Taste is bitter pepper, clean and crisp.

b3shine (9200) - Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a completely transparent light copperish orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes mildly sweet and hoppy; maybe just a hint of grain too. Average on the palate. Not bad, but forgettable.

hotstuff (5272) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Rated on 9-05-2009 at Sun King Brewery. This draft beer forms a small ivory head with a short retention, golden body, no carbonation noted, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is malty and bitter hops. The Taste is malty and lightly bitter. The Palate is fizzy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, I did not enjoy this beer as it lacks character and the flavor is bland and boring. This is a beer that I do not recommend unless one likes bland and boring tasting beer.

Growler from Sun King Brewery in Indianapolis. Growlers on Superbowl Sunday! Amazing! This beer is one of my favorites to come from Sun King. Pours a red amber color and a thin frothy head. The taste seems to get weaker and weaker the more I drink it but that being said the taste of this beer is a sweet hoppy delight that is easy to drink, especially from the tap
