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.

355ml bottle from Mill St. pours copper witha small white head, very little retention, no lacing. grainy slightly poopy malt nose. flavour of a mix bagofmalts either mashed to high or sparged to hot. astringent yet aqueous. i wont bother with this one again.

Got this one in the Mill Street Seasonal Sampler IV. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a small off-white cap with average retention and a bit of lacing. Aromas of roasted and caramel malts, mild dark fruits, hints of molasses and a little hop. The mouthfeel is pretty wet, kind of boring with no stickiness to it and falls short. The taste is a bit too mild as well. A lot compared to the decent nose. Watery caramel, bread and a tad hop bitterness in the end. I would like to see this one less diluted with more punch to it.

I triued this beer on December 2, 2011 after purchasing a mixed 6-pack of Mill Street brews from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent orange-red with a thin white cap. The aroma was floral and citrus hops, brown sugar, and caramel. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour had a bunt leaning to it, was grainy, with a bitter finish

355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head and a few spots of lace. Aroma is very light hops and a hint of light roasted malt. Taste is malty sweet with a hint of pepper and a lingering hoppy bitterness which is not sitting well with me. Not quite as good as some of the bitters that I have tried.

On tap at the brewpub, amber color, with a bubbly white head, light floral english leafy, grassy, fruity hop nose, with a faint toasted, caramel malt note, with a subtle citrus hoppy aroma follows through a mediun-bodied palate with a crisp, fruity, yeasty, mild flowery leafy hop character with a soft grassy citrusy, pine, toasted, malt undertone and a hint of spicy tobacco leaf, leading towards a fruity, leafy, grassy hop bitterness finish.

Hammy78 (903) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
Draught at the Ship, Augusta St. Hamilton Ontario. Pours dark orange colour, a ring of head and decent amount of lacing left behind. Smells sweet and of malt. Taste is bitter and sweet.

Deep amber pour. The aroma is quite leafy and hoppy. A nice herbal hoppiness along with a soft toasted malt component as well. There is a little kiss of toffee but thte beer isnít overly sweet either. Nicely fruity out on the finish. Soft palate - itís not as dry as I might lime but itís a nice, fruity/hoppy ESB. Fairly rich and quite tasty.

I was sadly a little disappointed by this. Pours mostly clear copper with minimal head. Aromas mostly floral hops but it mostly comes across as a dry bitterness. A bit of caramel on the finish. Flavour doesnít really progress and it didnít taste too fresh.

Tap at the brewery. Murky orange, light brown. Aromas of floral hops, some caramel and citrus. Taste is full of malts and a nice hop bitterness. This is for me, the perfect session beer.
