On tap @ Crazy Mountain. A fruity easy drinking pale, a little on the hoppy side which I prefered. Good session beer.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a dark golden color. Aroma is weak. Malts & hops. Nice smooth palate. Flavor is quite nice though. I can taste some roasted malts, a little chocolate, leaves, earthiness and spices. I bet this one would be good in a nice autumn night.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
650 ml. Endless gusher that fizzed up all over me, the dog and the shoes even after trying to siphon off the foam for 5 minutes. If I could give a zero for appearance I would. Nose is sour orange, light caramel and some resin. Tastes of sour orange zest, caramel and green herby resin. Light-medium body is balanced and has medium-high carbonation. The name is apropos for this attempt at an ESB, it never even seems to enter into the same sandpit.

16 oz pour on nitro at Town Hall Tap. The nitro part is not what I was hoping for but you with what you’re given. This one really owns its bitterness. Smell is dulled by the nitro element but a mild hop aroma tries to push through. Taste really disappoints...too much bitter with no balance. Aftertaste is funky and again bitter. I guess the nitro aspect could negatively impact the impression but in general this is probably worth skipping.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 22oz bottle, pours a clear copper with an off white head, aroma is pretty sweet with quite a bit of caramel and malt, a little bit of yeast and bread thrown in there too, the flavor has a crisp front end with a lot of caramel and some chocolate even in the finish, slick mouthfeel, actually pretty enjoyable, nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-brown and a bit hazy, so-so head and lace.
Aroma and flavor are primarily malty, some toffee and caramel malt, some biscuit. A bit of hops for balance, but not pronounced.
Body is slick and finishes a touch sweet. Overall it’s not bad but won’t make my top three ESB’s.
