On tap at the brewery. From notes, so please excuse the paucity of details:

Exceptionally well balanced. Big and bready up front, with pleasant nodes of sweet biscuit and little hints of chocolate. This moves into a hop blend that's a cross between English spice and American citrusy bitterness. It's a great blend, exactly what I look for in an ESB, and the rounded balance of the flavor belies its alcohol content.

Good find, this. I was a little worried about Potosi, as the last couple beers I had from them were kind of off. Nice to see they've apparently righted the ship.

Poured a nice amber red with a thick off white head, nice lacing and retention.

The smell had a nice light biscuity malt with a touch of green hops.

The taste was very well balanced with a nice malty backbone with biscuit and bready flavors coming through nicely with a good dry and crisp finish with a nice touch of earthy hops.

The mouthfeel was light with a good dry finish.

Easy to drink and very nicely done.
