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.

Draught at the Mill Street Brewpub. Pours a hazy amber-orange with an average size lasting foamy white head. Nice hoppy aroma with some malt and fruit -- well balanced. Flavourís sweeter then expected with equal amounts of sweet malt and hops and a light bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, this is a nice version of the style.

Draught at Mill Street Brewpub. Slightly hazy dark amber-orange with a moderate off-white head. Very interesting aroma - earthy and fruity, with some notes of wet leaves and dung - I know, it doesnít sound very appealing, but it really works. Flavour is very fresh, with notes of grain, bread, and a moderately bitter/dry finish. Solid, flavourful, well-balanced - damn good!

Draught. At Mill Street Brewpub. *Someone*s on crack - this is awesome. Poured a hazy copper-orange with a solid, lasting creamy beige head. Soft lightly floral hop aroma, light barley malt, very simple but good. The taste follows right on, floral, fresh grain taste, the most appealing grain/barley aftertaste Iíve encountered - balanced, elegant - a true session ESB. Appropriately light body, mildly astringent - a true session beer, Iím looking forward to being able to purchase growlers of this one.

On tap at the brewpub. Medium hazy orange, medium orange tinted bubbly white head - looks the part. Nice aroma of fruit, bread, and a few hops. Taste was very pleasing - lots of malt, fruity hops and a nice sweetness rounded off by some wonderful finishing hops. Like the new IPA, this borders on the Tankhouse territory a little bit, but the fruity hops and lighter and different mix of malt differentiates it nicely - this would be an awesome cask beer, which Iím sure weíll see when the new brewpub gets that up and running.
