Poured into a mug, the appearance was a muddy copper color with a nice lasting finger’s worth of white foamy head. Slow dissipation and leaves some messy lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of earthy and grassy hop bitterness, light toast and some dry toffee malts.
The flavor had a dry crisp malty sweetness adding in a touch of cracker/white bread underneath. Dry malty and earthy aftertaste. Crisp malty dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, good ESB that I could come back to if I had it in my distro. Capa (3329) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2017

Draft pour pint at The Game, as part of my pulling beers out of RB hiatus program. Pours a hazy copper golden color with a cream head. Soft dusty malt aroma. Easy drinking bitter here. Nutty malt. Cool, sort of dry finish. Slightly better than stadard for the style. Enjoyable beer here. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2015

Tap @ brewpub. Copper colored pour with a white head. Aroma is bitterness, lightly toasted malt, and minimal pine. Taste is somewhat mineral with nice bitterness and pine and some toasted, grainy notes. Little chalky in the mouth. Nice.

Draught at the brewpubrobforbes (2255) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Cloudy deep blond color with creamy head. Light malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, with light malt flavor that happens to be a bit dusty, no caramel, average bitterness, and a light earthy finish; apparently there is a very light residual sweetness, and extremely light liquorice trace.
A simple Ale, nothing to do with real British Bitters.
pours a somewhat hazy light copper with a small off-white head, and great lacing.
smell is floral, light grapefruit, some caramel, and malt in the back.
taste is smooth, nutty, malt, and caramel. ends creamy and a touch bitter. Ferris (16066) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft - Sweet malts with toffee notes. Negligible head with a cloudy amber hue. Sweet malt flavours of cookies and toffee. Mild alcohol in the end along with a balanced bitterness. Pretty stock ESB, nothing good nor bad. keepersj12 (3133) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2012
A nice amber with a small head. the aroma is malty sweet with a bit of nuts and bread. The flavor is very true to the style, malty sweetness balanced nicely by the bitter hops. SHIG (4963) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 17, 2012
Draft: Poured an orange copper with an off white head. Aroma was sweet malts. The taste was bitter hops and malts.
