Sept. 26, 2014. On tap at Bar Hop, sold as "Pourtentious". WIth such a ridiculous name I had to order it. Very creamy off white head. Faint biscuit aroma. Touch of bitterness. Very smooth mouthfeel. Biscuity with some malt. Not bad, but not too remarkable.

On tap at Bar Hop under Pourtentious ESB. Surprised I hadnít rated this yet. Golden amber pour, nitro cream head. Biscuit malt on the aroma. Not complex. Very bready and a little yeasty and heavy. Dry finish. Itís ok. Good session ale.

On cask at the Ceili Cottage (as Durham Tommyknocker ESB). Pours a cloudy orange/ brown with average-sized slightly off-white head, good retention. Caramel malt and bread in the aroma. Big caramel malt taste with a little sweet chocolate and grain. Subtle bitterness in finish. Nice.

Smells like slightly soured malt. Taste has soft carbonation, on cask. Has some mild bitterness. Actually one of the most decent profiles of an ESB Iíve had, especially considering I donít really like the style that much. Definitely some fruitiness in there, apple or pear or something. Subtle but itís there. On cask at barvolo.
