Pours amber in color with notes of caramel and slight hints of red delicious apple in the aroma. Flavor has a moderate earthy and herbal hop bitterness followed by moderate caramel notes that are subdued by floral hop bitterness in the finish. A damn good and authentic ESB.

Wow. Snd i dont like ESBs. Very creamy mouthfeel to this 5.0abv brew. Not as bitter as you would think. Again my favorite brewery.

Owl Farm, Brooklyn nitro tap: Pours a smooth looking amber with a creamy head. Aroma is caramel, dirt, and some hops. Taste is a little sweet, with relatively little bitterness. Plenty of caramel. Very easy to drink and smooth. Good.

Nitro at Pinocchio’s. Brown with a smooth head, the aroma is caramel with a hint of fruit. The flavor is caramel sweet with some of the fruit. A touch of work along with just a bit of bitterness to balance.

Damico (2983) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours clean translucent copper with a big creamy light beige head! Aroma brings light clean sweet malts and a bit of apple. Flavor brings sweet malts with a tiny touch of clean apple tart and bitterness expected from the style. The body is super creamy and pleasant on nitro.

Nitro Draft at RR. Pours golden tan with big nitro head. Nose is bread and biscuits. First sip is similar with mild spicy hop finish. Would probably be better on CO2.

pours plum color with huge creamy head, lacing was full. Off white head. Aromas and flavor of dark fruit, nice caramel malt, and nuts. Light hops, needed more but Could crush a bunch of these. Well done English style.

Tap...one of the thickest, creamiest heads that I have ever seen on a beer. The beer itself is also very creamy with a great mouthfeel. Taste is earthy fruit, sweet malt and a bit of hop bitterness. A very tasty ESB.

Nitro tap. Pours clear amber with a standard creamy beige nitro head, nice lacing. Aroma is light caramel, grass, biscuit. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, caramel, a touch nutty upfront, with floral notes behind. A bit of orange on the finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Solid.

Une pinte au Tap42 avec un burger. Un corps ambré et une tête des plus denses. Une dentelle complètement déroulée. Un nez de caramel fruité. Simple et alléchant. Un goût de petits fruits et de caramel. Je m’attendais à y trouver un petit coup des houblons mais en vain. Une bouche complètement nitro. Par conséquence, une texture crémeuse à souhait. Une finale faiblement douce. Parfaite pour accompagner un repas car elle se boit facilement et elle n’est pas lourde.
