Tap, brewpub, backlog. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small one finger fizzy white head. Nice biscuity dry maltiness on the nose, slight graininess. A touch of caramel as well with some light English hops. A little bit of an iced tea like note. The flavor is toasted, slightly grainy, and husky with a minimal hop bitterness. Finishes especially husky and a touch thin. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation, fairly short finish. Almost reminds me more of an Irish Ale than an ESB, this needs a bit of a bump up in the hops department to give it a little character.
