3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: caramel, bready, cereal
Appearance: white frothy head, body is amber and clear
Taste: Initial sweetness from malt bill is balanced out with a prominent herbal hop bitterness on the finish
Palate: Medium body with a surprisingly thin body. Average to soft carbonation.
Overall: A modern take on an ESB, closer to an Amber than a classic ESB. Good session beer

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Pinthouse Pizza. Amber with off-white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Weak malt, caramel, and nut flavors. Not a lot of flavor. Creamy texture. Not very exciting, but itís drinkable.

Nitro version. Nice copper amber color. Not much to the smell but who drinks a Bitter for the smell? Taste is creamy and easy, I really like the mouthfeel of these types of beers.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber beer with a bubbly white head. A sweet, tangy, malt aroma. Flavour is milder. The same qualities are there and thereís some hoppy flavour coming through as well. It doesnít have the rich, hearty quality youíd expect from an ideal premium/ESB but itís very drinkable all the same. A touch too strong to be as sessionable as they claim on the bottle but tastewise it absolutely is.

More full-bodied than expected. Good aftertaste for ESB, but still a little heavy.

The trick with any nitrogen infused beer is the pour, and once I got the pour right on this, it became pretty enjoyable. Itís very malty and has some roasted notes on the nose. Itís not going to knock you over, but it isnít weak, either. Itís a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber with a small white/off-white head with moderate lacing. Aroma is of sweet malt. Flavor is light to medium sweet with a hint of bitterness. Medium body, smooth (nitro). Finishes slightly fruity and just barely bitter from the hops. Overall, an underwhelming beer; I would drink it for free or purchase it if the other option were a Coors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Bright copper color topped by a small creamy beige head. Faint toasted malt nose. Soft biscuit malt flavor is balanced by a pleasantly spicy floral hoppiness. Bittersweet citrus hops in finish are subtle and lingering.
