Tap flight at the brew pub, served in nitrogen. Dark caramel color with a dense nitro egg shell head. Excellent lace tha. Oats the glad. Not much aroma. Flavor is sweet bread, aromatic veggie hops, and very nutty. Tips toward the sweeter side of things for an ESB. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Ok.

Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear chesnut brown with a long living frothy off white head. The aroma is weak malt.

Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, herbal hops and touches of fruit. The finish is sweet with a nutty and malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewery today. (The bartender said this was from their last remaining keg). Pours an almost clear reddish amber with a huge white head and some lacing. Aroma has floral hops, lemon, bready malts, and perhaps orange peel. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste is not as bitter as I had expected, but has the bready malts and a long clean finish. An easily drinkable, good but not great beer.
