Tasted on 5/26/12 from a growler, thanks to Nick. Pours clear amber with a thin white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is nice bread malt balanced by some spicy hops. The flavor is a bit more assertive with a bit of sourdough bread and more hops spice and bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a long sourdough bread and bitter hops finish.

Pours amber / ruby with a medium tan head...nice lacing and bright color. Aroma has some earthy/tangy hops and a mild fruitiness. Flavor really opens up with layers of tobacco, burnt toffee, and chocolate...good balance with earthy/woody bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry earthy/bitter finish. Really nice.

Tap, nitro. Light aromas of bread, harbs and leaves. Head is large, cascading light tan with thick creamy lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is light brown. Flavor starts slightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. Super easy drinking and nice tasting ESB.
