Draft. Pours golden with 1/2" white head. Lots of grain and malt flavors, as previous reviewer said the hops seem kind of lost. Pretty solid brew, but nothing special. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2012
In short: An inoffensive toasted Bitter that is really not so bitter. Ordinary.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Clear golden body topped by a very small off-white head.
In long: Nose is basic toasted bread along with some leafy hops and a light iced-tea character. Taste is crisp dry cereals, a toasted hay sensation, light presence of crunchy caramel. The hops really seem lost in this pint of toasted cereals and add an iced-tea flavor and a mild citric bitterness. Body is a bit elusive, maybe a bit over-carbonated. Absolutely nothing bad in this beer, just rather boring, my only disappointment at this fine new brewpub. The beer was added in the db as a Bitter but it should probably be an APA or an ESB. Was called Water Street American Bitter when I was at the pub, but now after the 2012 election it may have been renamed to Water Street Republican.
