Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: raynmoon on 07-03-2014

For beer folks, Chico, CA, and New Glarus, WI, are must-see capitals on the U.S. brewing map, but getting between the two is no simple feat. There and Back is named for the planes, trains, and zeal needed to connect them. This classic English-style Bitter is a complex yet easy-drinking mix of toasty malt and a fruity, herbal hop flavor.

New Glarus is fiercely loyal to its home state, growing to one of the largest breweries in the U.S. without selling a single drop outside of the borders of Wisconsin. With those local tastes in mind, New Glarus has perfected traditional German styles and invented masterful versions of complex and intense fruit beers featuring Wisconsin-grown ingredients.

A 12oz bottle picked up as one of the Beer Camp 2014 series. Bottled on date of 5.22.14

L - Amber red with some clarity, not much lace or head.

S - Malt sweetness and sugar. Smells very good.

T - Grains and sugar. Slight sweetness and well balanced throughout. Slight citrus hop in the background. Very tasty.

F - Well carbonated and light bodied. Well balanced throughout as well.

O - Disclosure that the ESB's are not on my favorite beer list. That being said, this is one of the better ones I have ever had. I would buy this one again, and that says a lot!
