3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
