4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE: September 2, 2016... OCCASION: much work was done today, of the spreadsheet variety... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... dark amber, almost opaque body that evokes a black and tan... the creamy head, off-white and smooth, almost lactic... tough to see, but bubbly enough... nutty, caramel sweet, slightly buttery with some suggestion of citrus and hop... the first sip is sweet, soft, smooth and savory--easily can see how this "helped establish" a cask ale following... flavorful, caramel-empowered, malt-forward profile... the nuttiness is also pronounced, with a lingering citrus--orange, mostly , with grapefruit--with pear strengthening the flavor... glass lacing is thick, filmy and significant... a delicious, full-bodied ESB that finishes strongly and invites the next... at 6% ABV, substantial but drinkable...

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma is caramel and floral hops. The taste is caramel, nut, and slightly bitter hops. The bitter mixes nicely with the caramel sweetness. This is a nicely balanced and sessionable ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper-amber with a one finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of toasted bready malts, caramel, sweet malts, floral hops, toffee, light pine, and light grassy hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice bitter that is easy drinking.
