    Sampled this beer at the pub. pours light brown in color with a nice tan head. The aroma is sweet and really enjoyable. The taste also carries over that sweetness and coats your mouth with some really nice sweet malts. The mouthfeel is a little watery but overall this beer is quite good.

    I've tried both the British and American versions and the American version is far better. This version is a copper coloured beer, darker and less cloudy than its British counterpart. Aroma is sweet malt, and floral hops, the hops more pronounced than the British version. The flavour is fuller and more defined in this version with a definite malt sweetness.

    Aroma and flavors of sweet caramel and malt vinegar, and bread dough on the backside. Body is a nice deep brown, and the head left some decent lace. Overall i can see how some people would like his beer but i really didnt care for it much.

    Poured an orangish amber with medium off white head. The aroma was malty with a hopy not. The flavor was strongest of malt. Average mouthfeel. I paired this with a supersharp cheddar which cut the sweetness nicely. I would like to try the UK version of this as I think it would be even better.

    This one pours a nice orange color with a good head. The aroma was sweet and floral, which usually means a good beer for me. I was expecting a good hoppy bite (my favorites) but I got an overally sweet caramelly/butterscotch taste. This was ok for a while since the beer was smooth and enjoyable to drink; however, it became sickingly sweet and "milky" tasting. So down the drain it went. May revist one day just not anytime soon.

    Malty and floral would be the two words that I would use to describe this ESB. It pours a very attractive amber with a creamy foam head. It smells of caramel, flowers and malt. The flavor is where this ale falls short. The floral taste is just overpowering. There is a malty backround but taste borders on some kind of cleaning agent. Tone it down a notch and this would be a great ale.

    This beer was just OK for me. Brought it over my parents house few months ago for dinner. It had some decent flavor, just the mouthfeel felt a little funny to me....I was thinking it was part of English Pale Ale style and all, which may not be my preference for ales. I enjoyed trying it, but for the price I was a little disappointed that I didn't try something else. Wound up leaving the last few for my dad, as he liked it, and usually seems picky about some of the crafts I let him try.

    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.

    Pours a light amberish yellow with a thin white head and tons of nice lacing. Some carbonation. Aromas of caramel and malts, sweet brown sugar and very slight hops. Taste is bready with a sweet malty base and a brown sugar sweetness with very little hops.

    Here’s a deep amber-orange beer. A moderate head sits on that body upon pour. Settles into a thin film. The smells mixes caramel with citrus-orange. The palate picks up on that caramel and sweet citrus adding some spice (cinnamon) The mouthfeel has moderate carbonation and a crewaminess that makes this a nice drink.
