Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: RJLarse on 02-25-2007

When Ben the laughing dog was much younger he developed a habit of sticking his nose in people’s crotches to check them out and say Hello. One of his favorite people to do this too, coined the term CSB or Crotch Sniffing Bastard and so the seed was planted for the name of this beer. A British style ESB with an LDB twist it is crisp but malty and at the same time somewhat playful, it is a great beer to have while out sniffing around, or if you are stuck at home on a short leash for maybe sniffing in the wrong places.

Great English taste. Rich and full. Mild fruity tastes from yeast. Great

Pours a hazy blood orange colour. Beige, single finger head that dissipates quickly.
Apple aroma. Some hops.
Apple taste also. Almost like an apple that is about to turn bad in a good way.
I'm partial to bitterness and this hits the mark.
Mouth feel is pleasant thickness but not overly so..
I read a lot of negative things about this beer but drink it with an unbiased thought and you may enjoy.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance:A slightly hazy amber body with medium bubbles to it. Off-white head with a very light orange tint to it rose to about a finger's length with a vigorous pour.

Smell: A very bland hop scent. Comes and goes to quick with not much to show for it.

Taste: For a to actually be called bitter considering the name...I expecting more bitterness to it. More malty with a corn infusion that blends pretty well.

Mouth: Has a nice toasty feel to it makes you feel like your drinking a super version of bavarian lager. Crisp and smooth, light stickiness to it.

Overall: Good beer with very strong flavors, love the sweet floral bitter feel and wouldn't mind having it again. Not going to blow your mind away but definitely won't disappoint. Perfect for the BBQ...Salud!
