A "cooper" is a craftsman that makes barrels, including barrels for beer. "Hoops" are the metal bands that help hold barrels together. Cooper Hoop is an award winning beer that utilizes English hops, English yeast and the classic English malt variety, Marris Otter to create an authentic English style ESB. ESB means stands for Extra Special B-Word. Facts: O.G. 1059, I.B.U. 46

Yellow pour with sticky white head and lace. Aroma is light caramel malt, a ting of citrus zestiness, and and perfumy hop. Flavor is full sweet malt that fades quickly to a nice appropriate bitter. A bit watery but well carbonated. 100 percent to style Iím not sure but ok. BLR.

Location: Draft at Little Rock Brewpub, 10/5/11

Aroma: The nose is light, clean, and malty, with a nice earthy hop component too
Appearance: It pours a clearish copper-orange color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is yeast/bready malts balanced by a bitter, crisp earthy hop presence
Palate: The body is fairly light with a mouthfeel that is crisp and clean and an average carbonation
Overall Impression: Overall, I thought this was a pretty nice ESB. This one is balanced and well-made. I found it to be pretty good, but I think it may have been even better if it had been given the cask treatment instead of being on draft. It is too bad it wasnít offered in that format when I visited, becuase I would have liked to have compared the two version.
