3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at btbc. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a loose white head. Big forward malty nose, great caramel presence with nice sugary esters and some pleasant herbal hops. Smells fresh and harmonious, well conceived and executed. Chalky medium body with soft carb. A little bit too soft, but probably right for the style. Toast, nuts, and caramel, with an herbal finish. Simple, clean, and easy to imagine sessioning.

On tap (from cask). Brownish amber with very little head. Classic hops really shine through and play nicely with the tasty malt blend. Creamy smooth and subtle. Lovely bitterness on the finish. Well executed Brit-style brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery.
Pours clear amber-brown with a nice off-white head. Nutty, toasty aroma, some grassy hops around the edges, nothing powerful. Clean drinking, gently sweet, toasty, mild clean hop finish. Not exceptional but perfectly drinkable and in some ways an enjoyable change from all the left-coast IPAs on tap at the same place.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perfectly amber color with small white head and little cirrus cloud patterns going on in the top. Leaves consistent lace too. Aroma is fresh pure grain as if it were just squeezed through cheesecloth. A little bit thin and slimy palate. Tastes somewhat bland, muddled and not as hoppy as I’d like it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown barrel appearance with a filmy head that looks ages old. Britt style ESB, with Britt smelling hops (Fuggles/Goldings) and the accompanying mustiness. Easy hop flavor sits atop a mild malt presence. Slightly bitter hop finish. Quaffable, and fairly true to the Britt ESB style.

Incredible, wonderful. A masterpiece of brewing. Not firey at all. Delicioso. Drink and be merry.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden-copper hue. Woody, foresty hop aroma. The flavour is sweet, with toasty malts and a hint of earthy bitterness. Rounded flavours, and an exceptional malt kiss in the finish.
