On cask at the Toronado. Pours with a hazed amber-bronze body and a lasting, frothy white head with a bit of lace. Aromas are sweet, earthy, a bit spicy and bready. Flavors are bitter, spicy, a touch of diacetyl, some esters, grainy, a bit of caramel. Herbal hop profile. Minimal bubbles. Decent.

Ever had a beer with an aroma of broccoli/cauliflower? Try this one. The taste was more normal and didnít give any reasons for neither celebration or hatred. But the small was very vegetable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at Toronado San Francisco in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice amber-copper with a big white head and quite a bit of lacing. The nose is pretty hoppy with a big of lighter malt in the background. Good pine, earthy, and floral notes. The taste is not quite as nice as the nose, but works quite well. Nice crisp and bitter feel. A really nice ESB; one of the better ones that Iíve had.

On tap at Gestalt, SF. Probably my least favorite of the Moonlight beers I tried. It was a handsome pour, deep gleaming blood orange with a soft creamy head. Nose was lightly bitter with plenty of biscuity malts. But while I felt it was an enjoyable, sessionable approximation of a classic ESB, I was disappointed that it wasnít nearly as distinctive as the other Moonlight brews I sampled. Likely thatís the point, but thatís what Iím stickiní with.
