COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Envy is the perfect balance between malt and hops. Not too dry nor too sweet, it is a full-bodied and complex beer without being overly heavy. The dried fruit notes derived from rich and earthy British malts and slightly higher fermentation temperatures conjure flavors reminiscent of an old-world ESB. Compare it to the last amber you had and you’ll know why we call it ENVY. IBU: 25.9

Pours a deep amber into the glass with a small white head. Aroma is slightly fruity with a bit of malt sweetness. Flavor is toasted malt with a slight bitterness followed by some astringency. Thin body. These guys are new so I’m betting this beer will get better as they go.

On tap at Draught House. Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma is licorice, candy, and dusty raisins. Taste is old fruit, leaves, astringent, and bitter grain. Kinda thin.

Pint glass at the brewery- poured an opaque very darkened brown with ruby tints, minimal head, faint aroma of grains and a wet autumn walk through the northwoods- just wish it was more pronounced. Hits the mouth with an even medium body, malt has a slight touch of caramel but it is easy to find, middle holds up fine, finish is slightly bittering and demands another sip. I could drink this all night long for several months, and I wouldn’t be happier.

Cavie (4652) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2011
On tap at Draught House. Pours a clear dark reddish color with a small white head. Aroma is huge raisins with dry grains and a small bit of sweet malt. Flavor is dry raisins and dark fruits. There are dusty notes for sure with some grainy finishings. Odd, especially considering the style.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Deep clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of fall leaves, and twigs. Tight malty flavor with 30% hops in the finish. Full body and flavor. Too bad this cant be the default amber ’round the world.

A nice, tidy amber with some good nutty notes -- very accessible. I’m not sure it’s quite big enough to be an ESB -- I think it’s more in league with Saint Arnold’s Amber, Live Oak Big Bark, and Fat Tire. Stop your friend from ordering a Shiner Bock next time, and get him/her one of these instead!
