COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer Camp 23 March 2010 ABV 5 IBU 41

Knightro ESB is a fully nitrogenated beer designed as our take on the creamy cask ales of England with a decidedly Sierra Nevada twist. Knightro is mahogany brown in color with a rich caramel and bready malt aroma used as a platform to showcase bundles of earthy and herbal English-style hops. This beer has a creamy mouth feel and gentle carbonation from the use of a high percentage of nitrogen instead of the typical CO₂.

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.

IndianaRed (2313) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 13, 2010
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".

mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2010
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.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 21, 2010
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...

gkost (1711) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2010
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.
