mmmbeer (1390) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2012
5 oz. sample on 5-20-12 (Flight 1)-copper color with brown tints, dulled nose of malt. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt has just a touch of caramel which transforms to a bittering finish. Decent.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Part of a sampler at the restaurant. I note that I had a cold when I visited and could not get a great sample of the aroma of the beers that I sampled. Not very bitter for an ESB. Decent and easy to drink.
