look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Served in 16 oz. conical pint glass (January 23, 2010).
Eyes: Pours an interesting coppery-brown, with a thin layer of foam. This was served on tap at a bar in a pint glass, so any extra head was likely run off.
Nose: Toasty bread-grains, caramel malts, some dry fruits and pine hops.
Tongue: More hoppy on the tongue than the aroma would suggest, but very well balanced. Toasty, nutty malts, with the aforementioned fruits.
Mouth: Good carbonation, smooth on the palate.
Libation: More hoppy that most bitters, but not a huge enough punch to dominate the profile. A very good balanced beer overall, nice drinkability. It's lighter than a lot of other bitter also, but has more flavor than heavier brews.
I had this on tap and I'm looking forward to trying this again fresh from a bottle.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a haze red/brown into an imperial pint glass with a huge, frothy head that very quickly dissipates into a thin film. Smells of predominantly lemon instantly hit me; upon closer inspection there's some biscuity malt character as well.
The bready malts are up front in the taste, along with flowery and lemon bitterness, a light british yeast flavor, with a crisp (almost coppery) finish. It's lightly carbonated and very smooth but quite thick.
If I were to sum this beer up, I would probably call it an imperial ESB. It's extremely well balanced and just overall very enjoyable, without being overly complex.
