3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at IH Wilmington. Pours a clear dark amber color with half-finger white head that quickly disappeared. Faint aroma with a bit of caramel malt and some mild citrus and flowery hops. Taste is fruity and full of sweet malt, citrusy grapefruit, and earthy caramel. There was a hint of hop spice towards the end. Fine, low carbonation with a medium body and a bit of dryness.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
20100531 nitrogen tap at Newark. Dark gold and huge creamy off white head that lasts. Aroma has something bad going on...smells, sadly, like cooked peas and frumunda. Unfortunately some of that carries into the flavor, I mean, it really reminds me of pea soup. There’s an accompanying rotty grain that lingers retronasally. Really horrible stuff. Presentation was nice.

(11/8/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in North Wales. Clear amber color with a creamy off-white head and lots of soda-like bubbles. Aroma of malt, light fruitiness and light earthy hop notes. Sweetish flavor with malt, toast, some nuttiness and a mildly bitter finish. Creamy nitro mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the West Chester location. Sweet fruit and some celery in the nose. Murky dark brown pour, laces very nicely. A lot of the same grainy and malty notes as in the Vienna, but with a dry yeasty character coming through much more. And some light juicy fruit to differentiate. Light body, very smooth and dry. A great little session.

In addition the aroma has some honey sweetness and the flavor has some floral hops. Great sesion brew but why the hell does IH Willmington serve all there beers ice cold??

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at IH Wilmington. Pour was a full murky copper to almost orange-brown color, dark for the style and seemingly with a nitrogen delivery of cascading fall out. The aroma, though, was nice, full spicey, woodsy hops, some caramel and toffee. The flavor was big malts, caramel at the fore, balanced out nicely by spicey, woodsy and floral bittering hops. Mouthfeel was quite full but refreshingly light on the tongue with a significant level of carbonation. Nice stuff, gotta love it when a brewer hits ya hard with a nice take on a normally blah style (for me). Two thumbs up for an ESB.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wilmington. Sweet cereal aroma. Medium-light brown, lasting nitro head. Odd, disjointed cereal and bittering hops flavor, a little sweet. Watery. Needs work.
