4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Some sweet English malts in the aroma. This beer is incredibly smooth. It was all gone before I could even get a good feel for the flavor. A simple yet fantastic beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On-Tap at the Brewery (There for the 04 Reno Air Races)
Clear cronze, light carbonation/head. Nose of faint fresh crispy hops & well mashed grains. The flavor is very mild & balanced. Traditional ESB in the purest sense (aside from cask of course). Finishes fresh and tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught - calls itself ESB) Dark amber colour; little head. Fruity and malty nose. Quite bitter start, rather roasted, even coffee-ish taste. Big on malts underneath. Retronasal full of interesting flavours as artichoke, hoppy, leafy. Well-bodied, slick. Strange combination but good balance.
