COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap at Redlight. Clear brown pour with an off white head. Nice bready malt, noble euro hops in the aroma. Nice toffee, bready malt body with just a dash of earthy hops in for bitterness. Good session brew.

draft @ redlight redlight. Spicy hops on the nose with bready malts as well. Pours a light amber/dark orange color with a white head. Nicely balanced, bread-like malts with just a hint of caramel with spicy earthy hops. Finishes pretty dry with just slight hint of sweetness. Nice session.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Pours hazy amber with notes of roasted nuts and grains. These grains/malts shine on the palate and lend to a nice big finish. Excellent ESB.

Dark amber appearence. Breast, yeast nose. Not much going on. Taste is decent, strong bread taste. Malty. Overall an ok brew.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 UPDATED RATING: CCB has since put this on Nitro and it’s a totally different beer. Awesome creamy body really accentuates the soft hop bitterness and caramel notes. Makes this beer a lot better in my book. --- ORIGINAL RATING: Pours a cloudy amber. Nose is grainy and earthy. Flavor is grainy, bready, slightly astringent.

First to rate! 5/20/11. On tap. Slightly hazed amber pour with a small tan head. Light aroma of caramel, chocolate, and nuts. Bigger nutty flavor with earthy hops and lingering subtle chocolate. Nice!
