Need a beer to bring forth your innermost positive feelings? Our ExpectuS Beertronum is an amber-brown English style extra special bitter and will do just that. Maris Otter, brown, and crystal malts yield flavors like a cross between a light chocolate brownie and a nutty shortbread. Just enough English hops to balance and not “bitter” as the name may suggest.

Atlanta, Ga. - on tap at the brewpub, Sparkling medium copper pour, light off-white head. Aroma has a wort-like essence to it, a touch of spruce and pepper. Flavor has a nice underlying subtle bitterness to it with some citrus, a touch of pepper-like spiciness and some nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of carbonation to it. Pretty decent ESB.

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of an almost roastiness up front with some malty moments. Taste of bread with a slight citrus hint. The bitterness is sneaky at first but pleasantly lingers in the finish.

Though lacking the strength of bitterness of most traditional ESBs, this is an excellent beer. Perhaps it could be termed an "American ESB", (though ironically not nearly as bitter as the many many EIPAs crowding the market), it has a great toasted malt character. More carbonated than the typical ESB, pours beautifully. Great flavor mashup. Weakness lies in the body, a tad watery on finish.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2012
Appearance: Well-hazed, orange-amber body with a finger of slowly receding, glass-coating white suds.

Smell: Some notes of toast, caramel, lemon rind, spice, herb, but the scent is just very, very light, a bit lacking, but I’m ready for the taste to bring on the magic.

Taste: Toasted grains soothed with sugary caramel. A little munch of ripe apricot, then, some light lemon before the spicy, herbaceous hops. Medium-light bitterness. Picks up a hint of white pepper as it warms. Drying finish given a little flourish of carbonation.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: I found it to be enjoyable. LibrarianGirl nodded in silent approval at the Harry Potter reference.
