On nitro at Old Grove. Pours a deep copper with a smooth off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, toffee, caramel, and some fruits. Taste is smooth and is mainly fruity, toasted malts, with some caramel and toffee and a tad of hops. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a slightly watery, sweet, short finish. overall, lighter, maltier, slighty less tasty then Calico.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nitro pour. Amber with an off white head. Malty base, with caramel, kettle corn, and light bitterness. No real redeeming qualities for me. Lower drinkability than almost every other BP beer.

Nitro tap at brick store. Pours a clear copper with big thick cap of tan white head that leaves great lace. Aroma of nice earthy hops over big sweet red malts. Taste is more malt forward, nice balance though. Creamy mouth with the nitro, great finish. Nice beer.

we had this..er...copper colored ale on nitro and co2. pretty unassuming both ways but pleasantly malty with notes of nuts and caramel, very light earthy floral hops. As a full pour, nitro slightly prefered."

Smooth, creamy, easy-drinking session beer, especially when presented as a nitro draft! One of the best American ESBs I've had!

4.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
My sample was tainted as I had this on a nitro tap. Deep copper color, small but sturdy nitro head. The cream head hides any aromas of this beer. Smooth cream over a spicy hop bitter with light nut undertones. The cream and bitter spice plays off each other so well.
