This classic style bitter is full and creamy on the tongue with no 'bite' as the name might suggest. Golden in color and mild in character, it's a 'session' beer that satisfies. Served hand pumped from the beer engine.

On tap at Victory in Downingtown. It pours a light orange color with no head. The aroma is lightly floral and herbal. A little pale and caramel malt. The flavor is very watery and herbal. Weak bitterness. Not really exciting.

On tap at Victory Brewing. Okay. A bit warm too. Low carbonation. An average ESB in my opinion.

Medium hazy brown with no head. Tried on cask at Fatheads in Pgh. Not much on the aroma. Flavors of nutty malt and a slight earthiness. Easy drinking. Good example of the style.

Served hand pulled at the brew pub in Downingtown, PA. Cloudy golden color with white head. Light malt aroma. Flavor was a bready malt with a mineral chewiness and a earthy floral hop finish.

Transfer from BA review from 6-13-12- Served on cask in a pint glass Appearance – Served a lighter amber/yellow color with a one finger white head. The head faded fast giving only the lightest amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is heaviest of a biscuit aroma. Mixed with this is caramel and some grassy and herbal aromas. Taste – The taste starts out with a nice malty base with hints of caramel within. Toward the middle of the taste the smooth bready base remains, but the caramel fades a bit. While the sweet fades a somewhat yeasty and more herbal flavor take over the vacant position. Theses flavor carry the taste to a crisp end with a light hoppy flavor melding in. Mouthfeel – While only at 3.9 % abv this beer is exceptionally creamy. It may be a part of the hand pull nature which leads to a lower level of carbonation, but the body is thick and very nice for the style of beer. Overall – One wonderful session beer. It has good malty flavors mixed with some sweet and hop favors mixed within. Very drinkable.

Had this one on a nitrogen tap at Engine 15. This is a great representation of the style. It’s very smooth with a light carbonation. Taste is nutty and minerally (if that’s even a word). This is a great session beer.
