Bent Paddle does it again. Pours a hazy amber with cool spotted head. Lots of citrus on the nose, nice malt backbone, could slay a 6er of this no problem..
Draught. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention. Aroma is moderate toast malt with medium earthy and woody hops with herbal qualities. Flavor is moderate toast malt, earthy, woody and herbal hops and medium bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. drpimento (3576) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2017
Good beer, but not too much like the traditional British ESBs. A little heavy for that. Nsanders (1137) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Can. Chestnut color with suspended particles and a quickly dissipating head. Roasted malt, toasted multigrain bread, mineral water and floral aromas. Malty flavor with a long leafy bitter aftertaste. Fizzy feel. vandc01 (407) - North Branch, USA - JAN 12, 2017
12 can poured at home.
Exactly as advertised - it is an ESB. Very crisp and easy to drink.

Tap (on nitro); pours clear amber with an off white head; aroma of malt, citrus, and a hint of pine; taste is slightly sweet with toffee, toasted malt, citrus, and some pine notes; finish is light bitter commonmac (1234) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Tap at Butcher and the Boar with a good crew including special appearances by commonshawn and samadouche. Bumped pint glass. Quarter finger white head. Copper/amber color. Aroma reminds me of an English tea. Maybe a mild hop characteristic. Taste has a mild bitterness to it with a healthy dose of caramel and malt. Herbal tea quality. Pleasant bitterness working throughout and comes into play towards the end. It’s not my favorite but probably still a warmer temp than 14 degrees. Andrew196 (1864) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Pours a redish copper with a healthy light beige head. Aroma is earthy with a nice hoppy shell. Very well balanced, some caramel and tobacco in there with a bitter hop edge. obguthr (6304) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2016
