My favourite Big Rig beer so far. From brewpub from cask. Pours breakfast tea with no head and minimal lacing. Nose is muted. Aromas of plums, brown bread, maybe a hint of butterscotch. Taste is medium sweet with really nice bitter finish. Medium body with light carbonation.

Decent bitter. Pours reddish amber. Average carbonation. Good for style, with balanced hop and malt. Actually a nice full palate, especially on finish. Even a faint hint of smokiness or something. Tap at brewpub.

Pours dirty brown with a small white head. Aroma is caramel and earthy malts. Taste is malty sweetness, some caramel and earthy grains. Good beer but perhaps a bit sweet formy tastes.

Metalchopz (2366) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2013
Growler from the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber colour with a nice off-white head that stays long and gives out great lacing. Beautiful nose of grainy cereals and caramel to balance things. Medium-bodied with a oily mouthfeel. The hop shows up in the taste, creating a little bitterness over the caramel malt with some grass. The grain and fruit come out in the finish. I seem to prefer this ESB to the Mill Street Father John’s one I had a few days ago.

Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
A dark reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a grainy nutty malt with faint grassy hops, boring. In mouth, a grassy nutty malt with light boiled veggies, faint hops, boring. On tap at Big Rig, Oct. 22 2012.
