an excellent bitter, surpassed only by their "Old MArcus". If you like beer with flavor, you'll like this one.

I got this beer as an exchange from a family member in New york so I have no idea how long it was cellaring.

This was my first ESB so it would be wrong for me to judge it but... I swear to what gods I find holy this beer is the best ESB I have ever imbibed! And i have have tried many a bitter since.

I would love to try another to get a more objective review, until then: If you get a chance to try this beer GIVE IT A TRY.

On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a golden honey color. Mildly hazy, looks unfiltered. Strong visible carbonation, 2 inch head. Some small spots of lacing throughout the session.

Sharp English hop aroma- grass, apples, pears.

Great taste. Pretty hoppy for what it is- a lingering hop bitterness stays throughout the session. Some apples and pears in the taste too, along with grass, biscuity malt, slight wood.

Medium to light body, crisply carbonated.

I'm really getting into English bitters these days, and I love this one a lot.
