2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours medium body solid head. I had on nitro. Golden color. Slight aroma. Average taste. Palate of bitter hops at end. Not my favorite Cigar City.
On tap @ The Jeffrey. This is definitely a nitro one yeah. A dense creamy off-white hefty lacing head over a clouded dark rusty copper colored beer. Smells mild but good. Hard to smell through the nitro so Ill just drink a little. Nice dark malty and dark fruity flavors. A little roasted hint. Dark fudge and caramel sweetness. Nice tasting. In the mouth its nitro smooth and creamy. Red apples and again, something mild roasted in the nose. Moreish. 14.06.2015 DocLock (11049) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Shared. Copper pour with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, toffee, nuts. Some caramel, nuts, pear perhaps, light figgy flavors, nutty finish. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 24, 2015
On tap @ Cigar City. Dark amber colored beer with a thin khaki head. There is sort of a malty and musty aroma. A little bit of green apple, too. Some grass, citrus peel, and a fair bit of bread. Sort of just sweet and acidic with an odd woody bitterness. Meh. BillWyce (1104) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Nitro draft at Barcade in Philadelphia. Pours clear amber with a creamy, 1-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of caramel with a bit of a roasted malt note. Some pine and tropical fruit mixed in as well. Medium body, lightly oily, with a dry finish. Tropical fruit flavor with an almond-like note beneath. Notes of biscuit and resin too, along with a touch of cream.

Sampled on nitro draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a very dark caramel color with a large creamy orange-beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tart, vaguely fruity and had hints of toffee and apple. The flavor was tart and bitter with toffee, golden fruits, citrus and a hint of pepper. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

This ESB is fine looking but otherwise unexceptional, Body is smooth but too thin.
