Appearance - loads of carbonation. Deep amber orange.

Smell - not much to comment on. Very faint fruit.

Taste - sweet toffee with a bitter cherry bite for am aftertaste. Tastes heavily carbonated.Not much to say about this one really. Im a bit underwhelmed.

Part of the Beer Camp compilation. Collaboration between Sierra Nevada and New Glarus. Pours a clear copper color with a good amount of froth. Smell is sweet, sweet, sweet, almost cola sweet. The flavor profile is pretty sweet also. Bitter as an ESB should be, but I also get a raw alcohol taste that is quite unpleasant. Mouthfeel is smooth but its hard to get over that taste. Not a fan of this guy, probably my least favorite out of the Beer Camp.

I just tried Alt Route from Beer Camp a Couple of hours ago. I enjoyed that beer. This one is a little funky....I have had English bitters before, but this one is a little strange.

A - It pours a hazy amber color with a large initial head that quickly subsides.

S - Really have to dig in order to pull some aromatics out of this, but if I'm pressed....I'm going with wet dog.

T - Tastes slightly acidic with bitter, grassy hop residual

M - The feel is dry and chalky...Weird...not a fan

Overall, its OK. I won't be reaching for a second unless i'm desperate, but it could work for you. Personally, I think it's my own personal preferences at play here, but we'll see when the rest of the reviews come in.
