Brewed in the USA..... Pours an amber color with a nice thick creamy head. Aroma is not very exciting !!! malts and some mild hops. Taste is much of the same with the addition of bread, The mouthfeel was super clean and finishes smooth.

Sampled on cask at brewpub and tasted while taking tour of the operations. The right smoothness coupled with a bitter finish. Hop presence keeps this from being bland, nice.

On the hand pump at Coopers. I liked this beer alot, had a smoothness they made it real easy to drink. But what’s with the 3.9%???
Lost some points with me on that one.

On hand pump at Cooper’s. Clear cooper color with a bitter grainy, hops aroma. Creamy. Flavor of grain, hops, and a bitter finish. Mild and tame makes it very drinkable.

Draft. A pretty true-to-form ESB. Dry malt aromas, tame hops, and some buttery grains. Soft palate. Clean finish. A little soapy, but appropriately American. Drinkable and not bland. Copper penny in color.

Draft at the Birreria Paradiso in DC. Orange amber-brown color. Nice head. Mellow carbonation and low alcohol make this one quite smooth and true to style. A creamy amber spice character/flavor. Very enjoyable. Nice fuggles hop aroma.

Bach party, on cask. Love this style. Just another good Victory beer that I wish I could have drank all day. Reasonably good flavor for a bitter.

On cask at Teresa’s Next Door during Philly Beer Week. Poured a hazy golden color with a big fluffy white head. Hops are fresh on the nose but a little dull, yet still inviting. Flavor has a nice malty base and a nice hoppy flavor without the bitterness. I really liked the palate. Low carbonation, medium bodied, smooth and very easy to drink. Wouldn’t mind having a cask of this on hand during the hot summer months.
