3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle- poured out a nice honey gold with a thin white head. Aroma was mildly floral. Taste was very subtle with sweet clover. Thin palate. Would be a nice hot weather thirst quencer, other than that, there isnít much there.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro bottle. Pours amber with a thick off-white head coalescing on top. Nose is somewhat muted by the head, but has herbs and spicy, caramelly malts reminiscent of good English ESB. Flavor is an excellent rendition of an ESB - perhaps the best Iíve had in an American bottled beer, as a result of the way that the nitro texture enhances the flavor - this is like drinking a wonderful dream that reminds me of some of the best pints I had in England. Flavor is bitter upfront with an herbal bitterness that pleasantly stays on the tongue throughout, more spice and just a bit of sweetness in the middle, finish has a dry mild bitterness that makes one want to sip more. Great stuff.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear amber body with a thick off-white head. Low carbonation. Sticky lacing marks. Aroma of caramel, rusty metal, biscuit and light fig. Flavour of honey Cheerios, sponge cake, Digestives and overripe pear. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Not great - a bit flabby and dull.

"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.
