light brown color, fairly clear, small off-white head which disappears quickly, slight lacing. light citrus hops in the nose, touch of tea. flavor of sweet malt, touch of creamy caramel, lightest hint of citrus hoppiness. medium bodied, bitter finish. a bit too meek and a touch too sweet to be repeatable. sweetens more as it warms. 6 pack purchased a liquor depot in monee.

Poured out an orangy brown clear beer with an acceptable ammount of off-white head that leaves small spotty lacing. Lots of fruity aroma, caramel and burnt sugar. Some spice and possibly some alcohol. The taste is filled with mildly spicy hops and some burnt sugar and a weak fruit...but there is a notable alcohol burn...or is it the hops? Hard to tell as the flavour isn’t all that great to start off with. Light medium bodied. Fairly smooth on the mouth while being very carbonated. After the not-so-good bitterness vanishes you are left with a bit of a chewy burnt sugar finish. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Yet another incredibly boring ESB’s on the market and while it’s nothing to get excited about, it’s not a drainpour either. The beer pours out a medium amber color/orangeish color, slightly hazy with a 2" foamy off-white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with honey, some yeast/bready aroma, dust, and floral. Aroma though is very restrained and there just wasn’t enough there to get a higher score. Flavor is sweet up front, with a bit of french bread-like sweetness, slightly fruity with a bit of off-caramel. Eh. italarican (1550) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Straight from the bottle. Had an aroma of sweet malt, some caramel. and maybe a bit of sugar cane. Taste was slightly hoppy with hints of caramel. Somewhat creamy for a light body. I like it. Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Pours light rusty brown with a nice creamy, tan head; good lacing. Pleasant malty aromas with a touch of fig and wine; faint hop bouquet. Malt sweetness is almost immediately followed by a balancing hop bitterness. From here on its all downhill: almost no flavors in the middle or in the finish except an unpleasant astringency that, coupled with the fizziness on the tongue, leaves the impression of tonic water. Too bad.

Orange pour with a white head. Sweet malt aroma with some hops coming through. Some caramel flavor followed by some bitterness. Nothing too powerful. Solid but not over the top. Oscbert (1302) - Lincoln, California, USA - APR 25, 2009
~A somewhat hazy orange amber beer with nice fluffy rocky white head.
~Caramel malt aroma withe some fruity sweetness and bread.
~Sweet citrus caramel flavor, slightly nutty.
~ light to medium feel. Bitter citrusy finish.
~Decent little brew. Nothing special but enjoyable. Glad Ratebeer labeled it as an ESB

Twist off 12 oz. bottle, pours a red rose-light brown color with some haze, gave an off-white head and some effervescence bubbles, aromas of bread, malt and yeast with honey and faint fruit sweetness, flavor of bready malt, some caramel, faint fruit and light toasted malt? Malt sweetness was tasted through out the drink, has some hop bitterness that sort of reveals itself more at the finish, I was surprised how much sweetness was in this ale, nice drink Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Medium amber color. Light malt, earthy aroma. Sweet creamy mouthfeel, nice texture. Has a watery, grape aftertaste. Would make a nice fresh cask ale. Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Pours a caramel-amber with a 1 inch head. Flavor is of honey and malt, with some gnarly upleasant skunkiness coating the mouth at the end. Overall decent, but would’ve been much more enjoyable without that odd nastiness at the end. Overall, fair+.
