skmikeg (1822) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2012
On nitro at Old Grove. Pours a deep copper with a smooth off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, toffee, caramel, and some fruits. Taste is smooth and is mainly fruity, toasted malts, with some caramel and toffee and a tad of hops. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a slightly watery, sweet, short finish. overall, lighter, maltier, slighty less tasty then Calico.

This bottled brew from a beer bar poured a head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated semi-transparent light brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and lagerish. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of mild nut mild hops and malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

On TRŌ draught
True to its name its a copper color. The head is tight with lots of lace, snitro yknow!

The aroma is leafy & malty... Faint, but fine.

The flavor is malty & lightly sweet... very mildly bitter with a light caramel bit to it.

Flavorful but also chilled out

Nitro tap at brick store. Pours a clear copper with big thick cap of tan white head that leaves great lace. Aroma of nice earthy hops over big sweet red malts. Taste is more malt forward, nice balance though. Creamy mouth with the nitro, great finish. Nice beer.

blipp (8532) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Nitro pour. Amber with an off white head. Malty base, with caramel, kettle corn, and light bitterness. No real redeeming qualities for me. Lower drinkability than almost every other BP beer.

Slight metallic taste at the end. Nice aroma. Had on nitro at the brewery. Sort of flat- no creaminess expected with nitro.

teamsale (228) - Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2016
On tap on nitro. Pours a copper with off-white head and great lacing. Smells like a standard esb with a scent of old wet pennies and malt. Tastes fine, exactly what I expected, flavors of malt and a lengthy lingering light bitter aftertaste. Very average.
