Draft at the Brewhouse. I think this is Fitgers best beer; the fact that it is served on nitrogen gives it a lovely appearance and creamy palate. Compares to Red Hook ESB; balance tends towards the hop/bitter end but a real nitrogen pull helps keep the beer from being too intense.

sample at pub. Its pretty much a basic ESB. Very true to the style. Very sessionable, but just missing something for me.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Had this one on draught as part of the sampler flight at the brewery in Duluth, Minnesota. Clear copper pour with a very thick, off white head, a sweet and carmelly nose. Malty, yeasty and alcoholic. This was better than I expected.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Smooth body. Deep amber with foaming head, very rich. Nice English character, tempered on the hop side and nicely drinkable. I like it when brewers make bitters more closely to the English example. (on tap at brewpub)

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Clear amber color. Thick, long lasting white head. Light malt aroma of a bitter. Aromas has bear and bitter malt as well. Mildly bitter flavor and lots of fruit, especially for the style.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On tap at the Fitgers Brewhouse in Duluth, MN, pours a clear coppery red/brown brew with a creamy off white head. Aroma of hickory wood, some citrus and breakfast biscuits. Taste is sweet, smooth medium body and a touch of apple sour. Finish has a flowery hop bitterness with a grainy aftertaste.

On tap at the Fitgers Brewpub in Duluth MN. Nice creamy whit head and amber color. Sweeet orange malt nose. Bitter creamy body with a slightly grainy aftertaste.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Copper colored pour of marginal transparency. Biscuits, caramel malts aroma. Bright cranberry and date flavors liven up a nutty cereal body. A very good run at subtlety and richness in English fashion. First rate.

On Tap. Reddish-brown with a quickly receding tan creamy head with sparse lacing. Scent is definitely hoppy with a pleasant fruitiness to it. Taste is hoppy and floral on the tongue with a web of complex grain an hop interaction (it kind of acts in the mouth in layers). Leaves a nice velvety texture on the palate and nice activity on the lips. Not an exceptionally outstanding ESB but it definitely had a nice smooth texture overall.
