Appearance - Nice toasted orange color, head reduced quickly to just a few bubbles lacing the glass.
Smell- Smells of biscuit and toffee. I was unable to pick up any hop aroma.
Taste- Dry and crisp. Finishes quite bitter. A nice English bite. Well balanced bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied yet somewhat thin. It seemed to be missing something I couldn't quite put my finger on.
Drinkability- Easy drinker. Would make for an okay session beer. This beer seemed to be rather two dimensional. The body seemed to fade quickly on this while the hop bitterness lingered.
Serving type: bottle

On a return visit in July 07 I was pleased to note a beer on the Hood Canal menu Id never seen before. I was even more pleased to discover that this brilliant oak-colored ESB was easily the houses best session ale. Though dilute in appearance and largely devoid of suds, its golden hue and biscuity malt character grabbed my attention, and the firmly rooted bittering drove it home. The aroma was nearly absent but for a distant fruitiness detectable only if you made the effort to locate it.
Bywater delivers English-style bittering and traditional attributes. Though not as chewy as some bitters, its a cinch to drink.
Serving type: on-tap
