Cloudy bronze pour, big fruity aroma, thick head with great lacing. This is a flavorful bitter that gets better with every sip. Another outstanding beer from Three Floyds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a hazy, deep amber with a big, creamy off-white head. Good lacing. Great aroma; citrus and pine hops in a perfect blend, with a candy sweetness to boot. Not very complex, but simple and just plain great. Full-bodied flavour; heavy on the citrus and pine hops with a good dosage of fruity sweetness, without becoming cloying. Remote notes of liquorice. Malt in the background peeks out as it warms. Bitter hop finish with a lingering grassy note. The bitterness isn’t overdone, but is nicely balanced. Too much carbonation. Overall a really good beer, with the carbonation being the only thing that’s off. 06.03.11.

Admiral Nelson pours a nice copper color. One finger head with a ton of lacing. Words cannot describe how in love I was with the aroma of this beer. If every ESB was like this it would easily turn into one of my favorite styles. It’s a hoppy ESB. Floral and piney. A ton of lemon and citrus mixed in with herbal notes. A nice biscuit and sweet caramel malt background. Lovely. Like I said, I just found my favorite ESB. Grapefruit and citrus steal the show here. The lemon comes in next with a nice kick of herbal spice notes. Caramel malt background with a smell but nice lingering bitterness. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Wow. Full of flavor. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side. A little watery but very smooth

Aroma is complex tropical fruit and light hops. The flavor is tropical fruit, fruit, hops/mild hop resin, malts and a bitter/very slightly tart finish.
