COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer Camp 23 March 2010 ABV 5 IBU 41

Knightro ESB is a fully nitrogenated beer designed as our take on the creamy cask ales of England with a decidedly Sierra Nevada twist. Knightro is mahogany brown in color with a rich caramel and bready malt aroma used as a platform to showcase bundles of earthy and herbal English-style hops. This beer has a creamy mouth feel and gentle carbonation from the use of a high percentage of nitrogen instead of the typical CO₂.

"eh. obviously served on nitro and it’s just not big enough of a beer to be able to pull that off. a nice light and floral aroma and sweetness is nice, but pretty weak."

Watery. Clear orange pour with white head. Aroma is malty and musty. Taste is stale. Not bad. Not good.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Tap at RNH. Pours a hazed deep brown with a good off white head. Aroma is earthy nutty doughy light fruity ester and English nutty yeast character. Flavor is leather, earth, dust, toast, caramel malts, grass, fruits, and a mostly dry finish, slight mineral and toast in the end as well. Ok.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Draft. Pours a dark amber body with an off white head. Best head retention of the night. Soft bitter hop tones. Light caramel and chewy. Soft fruit tones and a light bitterness to round down.

On tap at Rattle n Hum during their Sierra Nevada event. Pours a ruby tinged brown. Sweet caramel and malt on the nose. Malty, toasty with some light hops. Smooth, with long caramel notes. Smooth finish with toast, caramel, and more malt.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Poured a dark brown with a thin beige head. Nose is big roasted malts. Nice roasted malts with some good hop notes. Better than Guinness to me, but a nice nitro version of thier stout.

zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2010
tap @ RnH - not sure if an ESB is enhanced by being on nitro. Clear, dark brown pour, dry crackery malts and grainy adjuncts - used in good balance though. Smooth and body is tad creamier, but not my favorite.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2010
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Amber clear, some creamy head. Aromas of toasty malts, almonds, some earthy hop notes. Bit of a creamy mouthfeel but not much, some bitterness on the finish. Not very impressive.

3.8
puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Nitro at RnH, with an appropriately creamy head. Grassy, bready, surprisingly hoppy nose. Very creamy, slightly milky. Soft, super-clean body, biscuit, almond, cookie. Very tasty.

3.7
doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Pours hazy amber with a big, offwhite head, sheet lace. Smells. Malty and sweet and caramelly malty, with some earth. Tastes the same, sweet and malty, some earth, sugar. Medium body, velvetty carb.
