Tap at stags head. Chose this pleasant session ale to break up. Y otherwise heavy flight o beer. Pours dusty and a nose of citrus. Tastes of spicy dry hops, some malt, earth, and lightly astringent citrus. Relatively pleasant but a touch watery. Refreshing

Great session beer. Hoppy all over, but light alcohol and very light body. Bear republic packed as much as they could in to this easy drinker, so it’s refreshing while you can slam a bunch of them. Very good.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has a sweet fruitiness and yeasty spice. Flavor is very spicy...clove, nutmeg, allspice...with some syrupy fruitiness. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry, muddled spice finish. This tastes nothing like and esb ive ever had.

On draft at Lost Dog Cafe.
The beer is golden hued with a small white head. The aroma offers some hops and citrus. Tangy flavor with citrus and a bit of an earthy tone. Grapefruit, biscuits, crackers, grain. Light bodied and thin with moderate carbonation. Overall this was ok.

On tap at Pacific Standard during our bar crawl through Brooklyn. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Soft malt, toast, light hops on the nose. Medium bodied, spicy malt. A touch empyt. Malt, dry spicy hops, toast. Light hops on the finish. Kind of boring overall.

On tap their Tap Room. Not really an ESB as Cascade and Centennial. Served too cold and overcarbonated. Taste did not come through. It was lacey.

Slightly hazy amber pour with an off-white head. Nose is a bit on the sweet side with some toffee and toasted bread malts. A floral and earthy hop note, surprisingly fruity, and lightly herbal as well. There’s a mild bitterness on the palate, but it’s certainly sweet and malt forward. There’s a lot of toast and toffee. Light herbal hop flavor along with some floral and spicy qualities. A fair amount of sweet fruit throughout, too.

Hazy amber color out of the tap with a sticky off white head. Light, floral hoppy nose. Soft mouthfeel. Caramel sweetness with some orange and apricot jelly flavors. Floral hoppiness. The finish is almost soapy. Okay with the bar sandwich.

Sampler at the brewpub. Super smooth mouthfeel but flavor was extremely mild and bitterness was very low as well. Extremely drinkable, but a little boring.
