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 nitro tap at Bar Hop but called Pourtentious ESB. Very smooth and laced the glass very well. Had some bread and biscuit aroma and smooth taste. Only mildly bitter.

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.

Sample on cask. Pours deep reddish/amber. Aroma is grainy malt, slightest touch of caramel, light hop balance. Perfectly pleasant but without richness ESBís can have.

Overall it was a nice beer, but it lacked in malt and was a tad too watery for my liking. Had it at the Victory Cafe in Toronto on tap.

Cask at Ritz Deli North. Many times. Iím surprised I havenít rated this one before now. Amber brown with little head. Fresh aroma of bread, floral hops and fruit (peach, maybe). Nice maltiness in the flavour, bringing sweetish caramel, bread, and a slight nuttiness into the mix. And that peach flavour is in there as well. The hops add a subtle herbal touch and a not-so-subtle bitter finish. Body is medium and smooth. A well-put-together session brew.

[2552-20091028] Cask. Grainy dough aroma. Clear, dark orange amber body with a quick bubbly head. Grainy dough yeast flavour is a little boozy with some apple notes. Medium body. A little bland, not bad.
