Part of our shipment from Liquid Gratitude. Beer poured very foamy and was cloudy. A very slight hop aroma with some malt. Flavor was initially malty followed by some hop citrus flavors. Finished bitter. Low carbonation, flat mouthfeel. An OK beer, however I probably wouldn't buy it again.

Poured a deep amber with a slight clarity. Very thin brown/white head that dissipated into a decent collar, nice laciness. Aroma was malts, very little hops. Taste was very bitter but the only flavor was cereal grains and some malty sweetness. Very watery and thin texture. This was not enjoyable, the bitterness without any decent flavor killed it.

22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy ruby amber with a small off white head that quickly goes to a thin dusting that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is sweet bready caramel malts with a little fruit and hops.
The flavor is sweet, nutty toffee and caramel malts with a medium bitter finish that balances it. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, this is one of the better ESBs I've had which is not usually a style I care for.

Thanks to the indescribable bfg75 for this extra. 22 oz. bottle from a brewery I've never heard of while watching a bit of Gladiator...this pleases me. Split with my wife.
Pour from the cool, minimalist glass is a vibrant, red-oak tinged liquid with scarce carbonation. Nose is past light slipping into naught, really, just this side of a cool glass of water.
Crystal Bitter Ale doesn't taste like any English Bitter, or anything else, that's ever passed the gates of my teeth. My first impression is of English tea vs. English ale, a very herbal, steeped quality. Mid-section is a light dusting of caramel, touch of citrus. Mild bittering flags down the aftertaste, & there's a bit of soap dragging this down, along with more tea. Very crisp, except for the anti-bacterials.
Strange beer that's kind of tasty, but not as clean as I feel ike it should be, & the soap scum really hurts as the beer warms. Decent enough.

My bottle is slightly over carbonated.
Pours a loose head that fades quickle. Medium dark amber with very little hop aroma.
Very drinkable as there is moderate bitterness and balanced malt. The lack of hop aroma is appropriate for the style. Some peat flavors late in the taste.

A: All beige compact head at first then the clear copper liquid rises. Nice lacings.
S: Butter, caramell malt - kind of bready, sweetness and fruit; red apples and pears. Actually it's butter galore!
T: Follows the smell, perhaps even buttery, though.
M: Smooth whipped-cream-like body, medium full. Carbonation is low and aftertaste is short.
O: If they'd toned down the butter extravaganza this would probably had been a better product.

My first one from this brewery. Appearance is a dark brown amber with a nice stick around head, having fair lace. Smell of grainy light sweet malt. Taste is has a light grapefruit mild bitter, grainy malt that finishes a mild bitter sweet. mouthfeel has medium body with good carbonation. I am impressed with the head, it pretty much sticks around til the end. It's not a traditional bitter, but still a good local bitter.
