3.5/5  rDev -0.8%

On tap served in a pint glass

A- Clear rustic orange in color with one finger eggshell head. Minimal head retention, minimal lacing.

S - Roasted malts primary scent. Minors include chocolate, cream, pine hops.

T - Follows the scent, but surprising NOT very bitter for a beer in the class. I usually don't like ESBs, and this beer was very palatable for me as a Bitter.

O - Uncharacteristically not very bitter for a beer in the class. Was enjoyable, but I won't get again since I don't love this class of beer.

On tap at the Portland brewpub.

A - Pours a dark orange, almost brown with a silky creamy head that is white with orange streaks.

S - Hard to pick much up here, but some malts and barley do come through.

T - cake, bread, malts, sunshine, happiness. Very creamy.

D - Cask, so low carbonation, but silky smooth.

O - Bitter? No. Good? Yes!

Clear golden colour with a small off-white head. Poor head retention.

Rounded citrussy hop aroma with a touch of toasty malt.

Crisp, yet smooth, caramel malt. Good earthy hop balance. Nice.

Moderate body with low carbonation. Very good.

A smooth, tasty Bitter with nice flavour. Well balanced but it could be a touch drier.
