On cask, presented in a shaker pint.
Deep rich auburn colour - almost glowing. Thin, but dense, off white head. Thin sheet of lace is left on the glass with every sip - all the way to the bottom.
Nose is very flowery, with a decent enough malty backbone.
Rich and malty. Nice tones of caramel round it out nicely. Striaight forward dry flowery hop finish. Medium bodied, very easy carbonation. Smooth.

I had a few top notch ESB's while back in Michigan over the last week and this may have been the best.Poured a deep clear amber with a very nice well formed head that stuck like glue to the glass,big juicy fruity aromas as well as some brown sugar and tea-like notes even a touch of hard water.Quite rich tasting but smooth and medium bodied going down,biscuity malt,brown sugar and orange marmalade flavors hit ya gliding into a herbal light pine finish.Very rich tasting like I said but very quaffable at the same time,a stellar ESB.

Their standard cask. A little head on a dark reddish tinge. A hoppy fruity aroma, perhaps some wheat, and taste, but taste does not deliver on the aroma. Strange carbonation like it was infected, yeast: it was musty, fungy like. And malt in the finish.

On cask at the brewpub - Dec 20, 2007. No aroma. Hard to drawn anything other than faint brown sugar. Pours a clear brown, with rocky off-white head above. Flavor is a sweet and woody. A light tooth of crispness in sugar and old hop bitterness. Short. A little light on the carbonation, even for a cask beer. Not as soft and supple as I would have expected. Meh.

Had this from cask at the Grizzly Peak Brewing Company. Poured a nice reddish-copper color with a rich off-white head and some nice lacing.
Aroma was sweet malts and some fruit.
The taste was very balanced with a delicate maltiness and a soft touch of hops to it. It took me back to the pubs I visited on a trip to England.
Mouthfeel was very nice with the cellar temperature combined with a nice smoothness and no carbonation to it.
This was the best of the beers that I tried at the brewpub. Very drinkable and great with their fish and chips dinner.

This arrived with a big, rocky, off-white/light-tan head. The color actually settled out to become a very clear, deeply copper-colored ale. The nose was sweetish, but not overwhelmingly so. It had a very mild nose, without much that was discernible. The mouthfeel was medium, with a nice mix of hops and malt in the mouth. There was a definite bitterness, but the malt nicely offset it. The finish had that same sweet, mildly bitter admixture. Highly drinkable, especially on cask.

Dark amber/light brown colour, quite clear, topped by a generous off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Toasty malts and a bit of chocolate in the aroma. Moderate bitterness, some chocolate and toasted malts, little hop flavour. Short, bitter finish. Medium/light body and low carbonation. Great for a session.

Cask sample at the brewpub: Clear ruddy amber color with a negligible off-white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel, bready malt and fruit. Medium-bodied and kind of creamy with toasted malt and subtle peppery hops flavors. The finish is equal parts hops and malt. Decent overall.
