3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro draft at copper mine pub. Dark amber orange pour with light tan head. Sweet fruit esters and light bitter and malt notes. Some nutty flavors added to aroma notes make up flavor, body is more appealing than most esbs due to Nitro.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro @ The Front Door: Pours a golden blond color with a hint of amber. The nose is...not there because of the nitro. The flavor is has a creamy mouthfeel and smooth body. Nice clean noble hops and toasted malts in the finish, but really nitro is just not my thing. I can see how it can show ingredients in their raw form, but you have to get about 10x the volume just to see that.

Draft. Nitro. Amber beer with a huge dark cream nitro head. light caramel aroma. Caramel and light earth flavor with light citrus. Medium-light bodied. Caramel and light citrus lingers. People will love this - I just don’t like ESBs on nitro.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap at the Front Door, Boise. Hazy orange/amber with dense nitro I diced head. Soft subtle malt aromas due to the insulating blanket of micr-bubbles on the top. Slightly toasts malt flavors with bitter bite characteristic of the style. Very soft smooth palate, again, thanks to the nitrogen. Modest biter trailer. All in all not very bitter for a brew that claims to be a "bitter".

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Copper Mine Pub, North Arlington NJ. Pours a cloudy orange with a foamy white head. Hoppy pine and citrus in the nose. Flavor starts our with a hoppy kick, followed by a touch of caramel sweetness, finishes a with a dry, malty touch. Creamy mouthfeel, nice and easy to drink. Very good ESB, worth a try if you can find it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro @ TFD Boise - Pours amber with a huge off white frothy nitro head...aroma is grainy and roasty, hop florals, burnt wood...flavour is nicely bitter, pine resin and roasted grain, toasted bread, lt dry malt finish and lingering pitchy bite...this tastes EXACTLY like what one would expect from the statement "A Sierra Nevada Bitter pushed w/ Nitrogen"...a hoppy and creamy take on an otherwise forgettable style...pretty tasty...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Dunderbaks. Pours a cloudy dull orange with thin white head. Nose is citrus and pine hops, grainy, bready with hints of sweet caramel. Flavor is a nice balance of hop flavor both mild citrus and pine melded with sweet grainy flavor. The mouthfeel was great due to the fact that this was on a nitro tap. Very well done and easy to drink.
