DaMenace123 (253) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Clear brown with amber hues. Aroma of sweet caramel malts. Flavor is sweet malt, but not intrusive. Well balanced, but doesn’t really stand.

berkshirejohn (6660) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle: poured a deep coppery brown colour with a thick beige head which fell back leaving a still but glossily attractive pint. Sweet malty aroma, and a rounded malt taste, the hops are not intrusive, and the finish sweet but strong.

Stefano (2034) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2016 Amber coloured beer with a medium white head. Aroma is dried fruit. Flavor is malt with some dried fruit notes. Medium palate. Easy to drink.

Dedollewaitor (16393) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle: Dark amber with little white head. Roasted malts - caramel - little sweetness & easy hops. Not very filling. Dry easy bitter finish. Not the worst beer in its category! However average!

Yard (45) - Senoia, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Dark in color with no head. No lacing, roasted aroma. Hoppy, but dark. Not much aftertaste. Nothing to special. Average beer.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
Very good ale, however, not nearly as bitter as some of the ESB’s i’ve tasted. Tasted of dry roasted malts with hints on caramel and chocolate and some mild fruity notes. Pleasant aroma, thick creamy head. Gotta love that label too! Recommended.

Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Had this at a tasting. Cool looking bottle and great looking beer. This beer was good! Sweet and creamy. Plenty of malt. It should be rated higher than a 55%.

nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Poured a very appealing watery looking medium brown with copper hues with a whispy sharp white head. Malty aroma with a unique slight hop aroma. Initial flavor was quite enjoyable, dry malt with chocolate and caramel notes. Clean, dry finish. Not very bitter, I guess the level of malt qualifies it for an ESB. More like a light porter than an ESB.

anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with an off-white head. Malty fruity caramel aroma. Malty caramel flavor with some hints of chocolate. Malty fruity finish with some bitterness.

benpickens (537) - Camarillo, California, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Pours brown and clear with a creamy head and light carbonation. Smells earth and rooty with hints of banana. Malt dominants up front with hop dryness in the finish.
