Not good. It may have been the keg. Sour aroma, weak watery palate. Indistinct flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2012 On tap. Dark copper-brown with a thin disc of foam. Mild caramel apple and toasted grain aromas. Flavor has earthy caramel apple, toasted grains and nut, and a touch of cinnamon in the finish. Light-medium body is well balanced with a crisp finish and has light-medium carbonation.

Draught. Pours brown amber with wispy beige head. The aroma is caramel, nutty with some coffee and earthy notes. The flavor is nutty, mild fruity esters, with some caramel and coffee. Decent ESB.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap in Asheville. Deep unfiltered amber-brown. Thin tan head. Quite an attempt at an English version. Dull, watery, some mild soapy hops and watery caramel. Smooth, malt dominated. Sort of like a Brown Ale. Uninspired.

Draft in a flight at the brewpub. This one was much maltier than I prefer and was a little tough in that way. Poured a nice amber color, though.

Murky, brown pour with little head. Aroma was roasted malts, nuts, and some coffee. The taste followed with just a little bit of the bitterness I was expecting. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty decent stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Jack of the Wood in Asheville. Beautiful mahogany pour into the glass, with auburn accents and a fluffy head that reduces to a thin ring of soapy lace. The nose is of toasted caramel. Flavored are roasted, some toast, caramel, and some hints at esters. The finish is roasted and ever so lightly bitter. Medium light in the mouth, it's tasty and a nice take on the ESB.
