In my pint glass this beer was an amber color with a small tan head.

Aroma of pine and citrus, with a bit of sweet fruit. A bit understated.

Same with the taste. Some grapefruit, some pine notes, some fruit, some caramel.

A light, easy-drinking beer.

This was OK. It was definitely my least favorite in Beer Camp.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper orange with a big rocky off white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet nutty caramel malts with some fruit.

The flavor is sweet fruity caramel malt with some nuts and a dry grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent bitter, better than most.

I feel like the beer camp series isn't as bad as everyone thinks and I am somewhat of a harsh critic when it comes to my reviews.

This ESB is perfectly inline with a ESB, I am not sure what others were expecting but this is a very fine 'almost' sessionable ale. I love the fruitiness of the hops with the strong malt backbone. It's not the best beer in the world but it is fine for what it is.

12 oz bottle -- bottled on date 22 May 2014 -- served in a nonic glass.

Pours deep amber in color with a slight haze; very good, durable head and good lacing. Some rising carbonation bubbles.

Aroma: mainly a blend of malts with a touch of spicyl/fruity hops. Approaches 3.75.

Flavor: Malty but well balanced and matched blend of malts and hops. Pleasant lingering malty flavor. Near equal sweet/bitter balance.

Feel: medium body and medium, crisp but soft carbonation. Just right for style. Approaches 4.25

O: an excellent and easy drinking version of the style.

3.48/5  rDev -3.9%

12 oz bottle from Beer Camp box poured into Teku

A- Deep copper with lacy off white head
S- Smells like BMC??? That yeasties and malty american standard smell
T- At least it tastes a little better than BMC. Plain malt and bitter-bitter hops (yes, I know it's an English Bitter sytle)
M- Meh - nothing exciting... kind of standard Sierra Nevada IPA feel

O- Not very pumped on this one
