Bitch Creek perfectly balances big malt sweetness and robust hop flavor for a full bodied, satisfying mahogany ale. Like the stream for which it is named, our Bitch Creek ESB is full of character... not for the timid.

i liked this one a lot, unconventional hoppy brown ale. the pour is a decadent looking hazy reddish brown color with a lively off white head as tall as you want it to be. aroma is hop heavy on top of well roasted chocolate malt and an ale yeast that lends some seasonal vibe to it. flavor is great i think, the heavy hops on top of a sturdy brown ale is just what the early fall is calling for, its perfect really. i love the sweetness of the malts grappling with the bitterness of the hops. its got a great bite in the finish as well. feel is fuller bodied for sure, but the carbonation is rather bright, and the combination is great. its a little filling, but its perfect for this time of year. get some.

Medium brown color and is somewhat hazy. Pours with an enormous head. Smell is different than a typical brown ale - chocolate malts present but a hint of sour. Taste incorporates the chocolate malt and the sour smell may be derived from a citrus hop. Mouthfeel is great with fine bubbles that probably contribute to the large head.

Pours kind of cloudy. Well, not kind of cloudy. I'd say a bit too much so, really. This one is pretty earthy with bark tones to it when you let it warm up. Much more pleasant than I was anticipating. Only draw back is a mild bitter and citric thing that strikes me as slightly not right. But not really so much that it even matters. This is a nice beer.
