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.

On tap from the MS pub: Tapped a clear amber-orange with a decent cap. Aromas: Caramel-bread-grassyness. Flavor profile: Pretty much a replica of the way it smells...a nice bready-caramel chew of malt blalanced well with a grassy-herbal hop profile...light bitter finish...not the intense bittering of a Brit ESB but very approachable and sessionable.

On tap at the brewpub. The color is amber with a thin beige head. The taste is of hops with some sweetness of fruits. Some malt but not to much. It has a nice bitter finish.

On tap from the Mill Street Brewpub. Nice colors but not the intense aromas and flavors I was expecting.

Amber-red colour. Some caramel nose. Some breadcrust malts and herbal hops on the palate. Earthy, caramelly taste. Well-balanced with a slight herbal hop note. Earthy finish. Nice bitter.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
at brewpub. Deep amber, clear, some head and scattered lacing. Diacetyl in nose. Caramel malts. Earthy English aromas. Earthy with wood and stone flavors. Quaffable. Sweetish. Not bad. Is quaffable. Imagine it would be very good if it were cask-conditioned.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2008
draft at brewery. Nicely done. earthy sharp hops dominate at first, and without a strong bitterness, keep on going as you drink the beer. Enjoyable.

gilvanblight (801) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2008
on Cask at the brewpub. Unfiltered hazy pour. Rust coloured. Fruity scent with a touch of nuts. Odd mouth. Watery at first then a rush of flavour that reminded me of iced tea. Combination of nuts, spice, malts and bitterness. Rediculously easy to drink.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a slightly off-white head. Has a caramel toffee aroma with a slight bit of acetone. Flavor is nice: sweet maltiness and a tart citrus-like finish of bitterness.
