From the bottles. Great ale or ESB as they say. Had some not so long ago. It was gone in no time and a trip to Longmont is top priority.
Must be some biscuit malt in the mix somewhere. A long list of adjectives to describe how good it is and the answer is to have some more.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear amber. Minimal, white head. Light toffee. Soft fruit. A little spicy graininess. Taste is light sweet. Some dryness. Palate has a thin mineral feel. Finishes dry, with some toffee sweetness. Not my thing.

Drought. Dark amber with creamy off-white head, very little malt aroma, low carbonation, smooth with little hops taste, thick body, abrupt finish. Nice and smooth but a bit weak.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines, cheers AshtonMcCobb! Pours clear amber, no head. Light nutty aroma, light metallic, light fruit. Taste is nuts and dried fruit. Finishes with a herbal bitterness. Ok.

"a leftover from the CO trip that we had on tap as well. Not bad for the style, though not my favorite. Bright earthy hops in good balance with firm carmel and isscuit malt. Well made."

Nitro Bottle. A very nice ESB. True to english style. Not over hopped but hopped enough to enjoy. Head never goes away and nitro adds a nice creamy texture. Aroma and taste is strong malt. Overall a very nice beer with lots of flavor.

On tap in a pint glass: Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, very light citrus, and grains. Taste is cereal malts with very little hop and a little bit of lemon. Light body, medium carbonation. Kind of disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper w/ small head retention. Malty aroma w/ caramel notes. Little hop aroma and little hop taste on the palate. Fruity ale esters coming through on the finish. Overall, I could use more bittering hop framework in the structure.
