Got this one in the Mill Street Seasonal Sampler IV. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a small off-white cap with average retention and a bit of lacing. Aromas of roasted and caramel malts, mild dark fruits, hints of molasses and a little hop. The mouthfeel is pretty wet, kind of boring with no stickiness to it and falls short. The taste is a bit too mild as well. A lot compared to the decent nose. Watery caramel, bread and a tad hop bitterness in the end. I would like to see this one less diluted with more punch to it. cyrenaica (1159) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2011
341ml bottle reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
I triued this beer on December 2, 2011 after purchasing a mixed 6-pack of Mill Street brews from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent orange-red with a thin white cap. The aroma was floral and citrus hops, brown sugar, and caramel. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour had a bunt leaning to it, was grainy, with a bitter finish
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head and a few spots of lace. Aroma is very light hops and a hint of light roasted malt. Taste is malty sweet with a hint of pepper and a lingering hoppy bitterness which is not sitting well with me. Not quite as good as some of the bitters that I have tried. rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, amber color, with a bubbly white head, light floral english leafy, grassy, fruity hop nose, with a faint toasted, caramel malt note, with a subtle citrus hoppy aroma follows through a mediun-bodied palate with a crisp, fruity, yeasty, mild flowery leafy hop character with a soft grassy citrusy, pine, toasted, malt undertone and a hint of spicy tobacco leaf, leading towards a fruity, leafy, grassy hop bitterness finish.

Great example of style. Good malty backing with a lasting bitterness. On tap from the brewery. Hammy78 (977) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
Draught at the Ship, Augusta St. Hamilton Ontario. Pours dark orange colour, a ring of head and decent amount of lacing left behind. Smells sweet and of malt. Taste is bitter and sweet. JoeMcPhee (9586) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Deep amber pour. The aroma is quite leafy and hoppy. A nice herbal hoppiness along with a soft toasted malt component as well. There is a little kiss of toffee but thte beer isn’t overly sweet either. Nicely fruity out on the finish. Soft palate - it’s not as dry as I might lime but it’s a nice, fruity/hoppy ESB. Fairly rich and quite tasty. thb (839) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2011
I was sadly a little disappointed by this. Pours mostly clear copper with minimal head. Aromas mostly floral hops but it mostly comes across as a dry bitterness. A bit of caramel on the finish. Flavour doesn’t really progress and it didn’t taste too fresh. paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 4, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Murky orange, light brown. Aromas of floral hops, some caramel and citrus. Taste is full of malts and a nice hop bitterness. This is for me, the perfect session beer.
