Review from notes at Cigar City's taproom on 9/9/11 for Firkin Friday.
Draft poured into a 4 oz. sampler glass.
Appearance: Poured a medium caramel brown with golden highlights. Nice lacing.
Smell: Sweet malt with a touch of bitter hops.
Taste: Grassy hops up front followed by lightly roasted malt in the middle before ending with a nice bitter finish. Aftertaste is bitter as well. Very nice flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Very good drinkability. You could drink several. Goes down smooth.
Overall: Good beer overall. One of the better ESBs I've had (while I haven't had a ton, I know this one is good). Worth trying.
Serving type: bottle

On nitro at the brewery. Pours dark copper with a creamy white head. Light malt and spice aroma, smooth with low carbonation. Malty mostly with ever so slight hops, lingering malt flavor and a clean finish. Not much going on here, and I am not really a fan. Very boring and not much flavor. I feel like the nitro takes away from a beer like this, making it more bland than it otherwise would be.
Serving type: on-tap
