3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewery - lightly hazy straw - flavors of light toast, moderate mineral bite, some diacetyl, lightly earthy malt and a mushroomy British ale yeast mustiness - authentic malt profile, and the mineral quality increases the authenticity - the buttery diacetyl is a bit too strong, and the actual hop bitterness seems more in line with an APA, but this is somewhere between meh and okay.

Appearance - golden amber. Quickly disappearing head.
Smell - slight caramel
Mouth - med carb. More watery than velvet.

On draft. Faint whiff of licorice or Twizzlers. Flavors of dried fruit with a touch of velvet. Strikingly smooth version of the style.

Hazy ish copper under a thick foamy off white head. The aroma is nutty and very earthy with an odd herbal background. The taste is smooth and roasty-earthy on a medium body, with semi-bitter and dry earthy nuttiness and biscuit crust.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An excellent ESB that is true to the original style. On tap and served clear medium amber with a good amount of carbonation. Nice malt aroma. The hop bitterness is balanced perfectly with keeping the malt character in front. An excellent ESB from a new Brewery. I’ll be having this beer often. One other thing. Sometimes less is more in the description.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Flying Saucer Ft Worth The ESB poured a clear amber with tan head and lacing down the glass. This was an excellent ESB with balanced bitterness. The mediun body ale had soft carbonation. Your nose detects some honey and malt. The taste is complex with some bitterness blended with bready grains. This is nice ESB with a smooth finish.
