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.

Slight metallic taste at the end. Nice aroma. Had on nitro at the brewery. Sort of flat- no creaminess expected with nitro.

On —ŌTRŌ draught
True to itís name itís a copper color. The head is tight with lots of lace, sínitro yíknow!

The aroma is leafy & malty... Faint, but fine.

The flavor is malty & lightly sweet... very mildly bitter with a light caramel bit to it.

Flavorful but also chilled out

On tap on nitro. Pours a copper with off-white head and great lacing. Smells like a standard esb with a scent of old wet pennies and malt. Tastes fine, exactly what I expected, flavors of malt and a lengthy lingering light bitter aftertaste. Very average.

blipp (8275) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 26, 2015
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.

jbruner (4117) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2015
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.

Nitro at brewery. Pours clear copper with thick frothy off-white head. Aroma is bready and biscuit malts, light toast, spicy and floral hops, and faint woodiness. Flavor is dry malt base with light caramel sweetness, faint citrus, and smooth hop character. Medium body.
