Bitters have been the common drink in English pubs for decades. Mill St ESB uses only traditional ingredients, Marris Otter malt and Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops, all imported from England. With light malt and hops in the nose, this copper coloured ale gives rise to a malty body with hints of chocolate and black currents. The hoppiness is always present but never out of balance in this style.

draft at volo in toronto. it has malty aroma with hint of caramel, the flavor is whisky and overall it is well balanced and smooth.

POurs deep amber with nice notes of bitterness. The hops show a decent amount of flavor on the finsh but the bitterness comes thriugh.

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

Bottle from their mixed sixer. Pours a nice amber with a small white head. Aroma is decent, some British malts, subtle hops, very well blended. Flavour is also quite nice, subtle but firm, if that makes sense. Nice classic but watered down ESB malt character (classic to me, as I guess in Ontario we have primarily generic examples to compare to), not a whole lot of body, but what’s there seems fairly adequate. Goes down pretty easy, makes more sense as a regular Bitter as opposed to an ESB. Chocolate and black currants? Not really. I think Mill St. has issues regarding what constitutes legitimate examples of certain styles, whether intentional or not.

Hammy78 (980) - 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.

RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
Draft. copper pour thin creamy off white head. Plenty of residue on the glass. earthy hop aroma, old carmel malt. Taste is nice light malt up front. Some lemon. decent bitter English hop finish. Good bitter, on the low end of strength for on ESB though for sure in terms of robust flavour.

MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours a clear amber colour with a small white head. Grainy. Light roast. Nothing out of this world, but drinkable.

Frothmeister (854) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with a tan coloured head. Aroma has very faint cocoa, grassy notes, straw, and an earthiness. Flavour is malt heavy, but with a big hit of corn, mineral notes, woodiness, vanilla, and faint metallic hops in the finish. Easy drinking, but pretty average.

thb (853) - 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.

gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2008
on Cask at the brewpub. Unfiltered hazy pour. Rust coloured. Fruity scent with a touch of nuts. Odd mouth. Watery at first then a rush of flavour that reminded me of iced tea. Combination of nuts, spice, malts and bitterness. Rediculously easy to drink.
