On cask at the brewery - dry hopped with Golding. Deep amber with a big cream head and grey lacing. Floral, orange, somewhat grassy, doughy, biscuity, bready, somewhat toasty, and honey in the aroma. Taste is grassy, light roast, honeycomb, doughy, grapefruit peel, bread, and light lemons. Medium body with soft carbonation. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask) clear, deep copper, nice offwhite lacing and head. Nose is quite fruity, peach, stone fruit, caramel, complex as anything, raisin, more but hard to describe it all. Taste is toasty, fruity, yeasty, complex, a little sweet, nice English noble hop bitterness on the palate finish and a rather medium-thick body that’s well carbonated nonetheless. Great cask ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nonic pint draft at Hogshead in Denver, Colorado. The pour is a gold copper brown, with a small light tan head. The aroma is light cracker malt, paired with a bit of toffee sweet, then some crystal malt. The taste is caramel nutty crystal malt blended nicely with grassy dry floral hops. The palate is light bodied, with low soft natural carbonation, and a clean dry finish. Easy drinking session beer, quite well made. This beer really came together as it warmed, great balance.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On cask at the brewery. Dark chestnut color. Smells nice and malty. Taste is very good, chewy malts, caramel, nuts. Really surprising beer and something I would order again without hesitation. I don’t see too many ESB’s around and when I do they are unimpressive. This was very flavorful and just a real solid beer. MOAR!
