Out of the bottle from Uptown. Pours a slightly cloudy, golden color with minimal head. Smell is slightly sour. The taste is crisp and refreshing. bpreo (2832) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Almost no aroma to be found, and what you do smell doesn’t offer up any information. Taste is very hoppy. Good, I guess you cool kids would call this a "session" beer. Cybercat (5744) - Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Aroma is crisp, malty and rather strong - typical, but still acceptable. It pours a clear straw yellow with a rather thick and fluffy white head. Malty flavor is crisp with a fruity undertone and a hint of yeast. Texture is thick, smooth and fizzy, darned good. Not a great beer, but worthy of a try.

A little hop spice in the lemony, sugary nose. A good bitterness, a little pepper hoppiness and some grassy dryness. Tasty but unmemorable. vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Bright golden color with little to no foam. The flavor is light and sweet. Nothing too exciting.

Brownish yellow in color, not much head or lacing. Not much nose. Decent bitter taste with a malty over tone and finish. anders37 (26251) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2010

Has a fruity malty grainy finish with some hoppy hints in the aftertaste. FROTHINGSLOSH (7697) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-golden color with a medium sized soapy yellow-white head. The aroma was sweetish and tangy with notes of sugar, pear and apricot. The flavor was dryish and a bit malty with a dusty and chalky presence and hints of table sugar, pepper and leather. Medium length dry cardboard on the finish. Medium body. Eh. leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Hazy yellow with a one finger white head. Slightly spicy nose, fruity yeast. Bread, not much on the yeast anymore, no spice. Finishes nice and is easy drinking, just not too much going on. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2010 12 oz bottle into English pint. Aroma is wort, bread, but very subdued. Pours a slightly hazy lemonade color with a medium dissapearing head. Taste is bananas, pepper, citrus. Taste is salty then sweet; no bitterness. Highly carbonated with a full body. Creamy mouthfeel. Doesn’t taste like any ESB I’ve ever had--it’s much better. The banana esters make it reminiscent of a hefeweizen and the pepper notes remind me of a saison. Interesting and really tasty. Would be a perfect session brew.
