This beer poured a clear copper color and had a thin white head to it. It's crisp with a strong hop bitterness. The hops give off some unique citrus flavors -especially grapefruit rinds. Perfect malt body and a subtle hop aroma. This beer has alot to offer and is a great ESB. This is one I could drink all night.

Wow. This poured with a good head that was slightly darker than most pale ale or bitter heads. This had a good malt and hop nose and was a rich amber in color. This was very close to the Troegs ESB. I wanted to try more beers at the Great Lakes Brewery Pub but this was so good that I stayed with this.
