3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at BJs in Aurora. Listed as their Underground ESB (and the waiter kept going on about this being their new Philadelphia beer). Iím guessing this one was on nitro by the way it poured (looked like a amber/golden guiness). Poured a medium amber with golden edges and an averaged sized off white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aromas and tastes of toasted malts, citrus, lightly floral and light caramel. My 3.5 year old daughter said it smelled like peaches. Thinner body.
