On draft at the brewery. Similar to the Pilot series without the dry finish. Pours a light caramel brown with an off-white head. Nose is biscuity malt, earthy and slightly citrusy hops. Flavor is similar with biscuity malt everywhere and some earthy hops and a malt/ balanced finish. A nice ESB. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2015
On tap at the Pinglehead brewpub.
This ESB is fine looking but otherwise unexceptional, Body is smooth but too thin. DialSquare (5186) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2011
On tap at Proof. Bready malts in the aroma. Tastes were rye, sweet malt and caramel. Lightly dry finish. Great CC texture as always. Very drinkable. Palme (4856) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2017
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 nick76 (4403) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2011
The aroma has citrus, grass, biscuit, and some sour grain notes. The appearance is amber with a white lacing head. The taste is balanced between citrus/grassy hop bitterness and a sweet biscuity malt. The palate is average. Not bad, better than average but not great.

Shaker pint nitro draft at The Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, Florida. The pour settles to a clear golden orange with a nitro cream head. The aroma is minimal due to the thick nitro cream head blocking. What aroma is there is cracker malt. The taste is a smooth cracker malt along with a hint of toast and some crystal malt notes. There is grass in the finish. Clean, simple, tasty. The palate is medium bodied, nitro carbonation and lingering malt. Nice. maekchu (4098) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Strong bitter nose with a slice of pine. Deep amber-gold color, no head. Goes high and low with bitterness and malt. Final is a bit sweet. Very smooth, just a bit sticky at the end. This one works fairly well. jrob21 (3874) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Growler from brewpub. very flavorful and spicey esb. pours a beautiful copper color. Grassy hops very reminiscient of the best of the brits.
