2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle. Amber with small head. If you gave me ten guesses as to what this was, ESB would not have been one of my guesses. There’s some malt and hops, but it doesn’t come together in any cohesive way.

Went down the line at the brewery and came across another below average beer... sweet malty... All there beers have an odd after taste and are a little thin

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
More of an English malty beer with some hops, not up to the nice bitterness of an ESB. Light red coloured. Good drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up at the brewpub. Pours a dark amber. Small white head. Grainy aroma. Flavor of caramel and bitter. Mouth feel is a nicely balanced bitter. Very solid offering, much better then expected.

Amber color out of the bottle with a nice khaki colored head. Light grainy nose with some citrus hops and something vaguely chemical. Flavors of lightly toasted white bread, with some tea, raw grain, fruit and a red grapefruit bitterness. Lingering grapefruit hops in the finish. There is something vaguely sour in the background.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of some yeast fruitiness, light toasty notes, and a touch of nuts. It pours a transparent copper with a one finger cream colored head. The flavor starts lightly fruity with mild caramel. The finish has toasty notes, light nuts, faint grapefruit, and herbal hops. It’s light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation and a mouthfeel that is a tad prickly at times.
