COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitters have been the common drink in English pubs for decades. Mill St ESB uses only traditional ingredients, Marris Otter malt and Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops, all imported from England. With light malt and hops in the nose, this copper coloured ale gives rise to a malty body with hints of chocolate and black currents. The hoppiness is always present but never out of balance in this style.

Strangebrewer (794) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
bottle. Poured clear amber-orange with a very thin white head. The aroma is light with sweet caramel malt. Body is a bit fizzy, average. Flavour is nice with caramel, some nuttiness and a grassy hops note, but itís just lacking something.

Not sure if this was just because it was the first taster of the morning at the Mill St. brewery store, but it tastes and smells a little sour. The bitterness factor doesnít come much into play here. An unexpected - and not very pleasant - experience.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2012
355ml bottle, 4.6% a/v. Pours fiery and deep copper color with a thin off white head. Aroma is very malty and caramel, some nice nut aromas too. The taste is similarly malty and nutty, almost a deep roasted almond palate to finish it off. This is a very well balanced brew, glad to see Mill Street keep pumping out the quality beer!

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Brassy golden colour, medium white head. Aroma is grainy with light toffee, a little weak. Flavours are dull, watery toffee and grains, metallic note in the finish. A poor example of a style that ranges widely. Maybe the ingredients were authentic, but the craftsmanship missed the mark.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light dry caramel malt notes with some light dry hops. Taste is a mix of dry caramel malt notes with some light subtle hops at the end. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing bad here though nothing earth shattering either.
