Draft. Huge aroma of oak, nothing but oak. Flavors of a traditional ESB, caramel, with some ginger ale. Crisp, oaky finish. Marvelous!

NikkTwist (2048) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2015
Had the original back in September 2012. Now having a pour from a Firkin at Good Dog in April 2015 for a Firestone Walker event. Cloudy orange amber with a reasonably thick off-white foam. Nice medium-full body (likely due to being unfiltered.) Good lace. Medium-light vanilla caramel malts. Nice bit of chocolate. Orange pith marmalade. Some vegetative aged celery and peat notes. Great floral notes. Plenty of darkish orange/tangelo/mandarin peel flavors as well. The unfiltered body definitely positively adds to the brew.

On keg with lunch at the brewery. Slightly hazy brown, ring of head. Aroma of raisin, honey, baking bread. Medium to high carb. Wholemeal toast, bready malt. Some slight estery fruit from the yeast, rounded back-end with some vanilla, the union system in effect.
