NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Cask draft by beer engine at Khyber Pass. Slightly hazy brown copper pour with a very abundant thick frothy beige head. Thick foamy lace. Darkish ESB flavors, though ultimately feels like a watered down brown ale. Roasted nuts. Pleasant aroma. Cocoa. Chestnuts. Light toast. Plums. Milky malts. Somewhat complex but ultimately feels ordinary.

A chestnut coloured ale with a white head. Quite a fresh hoppy aroma and taste. A touch floral. Not as malty as i remember it being from previous times. Not too bad.
