Bottle. Clear amber colour with a medium mostly lasting creamy head and a fari lacing. Rich malty aroma and taste with notes of sweet caramel and fruits. Semi hoppy dry finish. bhensonb (15765) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle from D&J Liquor in (near) St. Louis, MO. Amber color with a decent beige head. Very "light stone fruit" aroma over slightly roasted caramel. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is rather malty with a fair amount of fruitiness. Finish tends to end bitter. Fits ESB style, though perhaps the malt is a bit rougher than usual.

Bottle at Peculier Pub. Basically what the commercial description says, but in no particularly flavorful or noteworthy way. Very average. LilBeerDoctor (4194) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange/brown with a huge tan head. Aroma of light fruits and toast. Flavor is quite fruity, with toast and marmalade. Very drinkable, tasty, and sweet. Enjoyable beer.

500ml bottle. Gold with a thick cream head; caramel and malt aromas; similar flavours, but over-pasteurised giving an unappealling jammy, stewed fruit effect; slightly bitter finish, but mainly leaving a burnt caramel after-taste. Not pleasant. cluny6 (115) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2008
Purs a clear brownish amber. Smell is bready, somewhatmalty. A bit fizzy in the mouth. kinda bland, crispy beer. Fruity with few hops. Nothing spectacular but not bad, just average. B- dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma is very honey sweet and toffee. Flavour is sweet honey. It is too sweey and quite thin. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 7, 2008
THOUGHTS: Nice beer, but very middle of the road in every category. Good in every category, but not very strong in flavor or aroma. Not very memorable. Nothing string, but very well balanced.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium orange with nice carbonation and an average to large, slightly off-white head that mostly lasted. The aroma was light toasted and caramel malt, light hops, light earthy yeast and a little lemon. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, moderately acidic, light to moderately bitter and a little sour with an average. duration. There was light caramel malt, some toastiness and then it started to taste like tea with lemon then a little bitter hops popped up in the finish. The medium body was sort of watery with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish. jason (1836) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2008
