3.23/5 rDev -6.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The bottle has an interesting little story about how it is named after a special cow that could hop over a fence.
A - A moderate pour yields a 1 finger head that dissipates pretty quickly. Color is a darker transparent amber. Laces pretty nicely.
S - I don't get much on the nose. Light hop aroma.
T - Good flavor from the dark malt up front but is quickly taken over by bitter hops. Not much hop flavor.. Mostly bitterness. This beer finishes pretty dry and I can detect a bit of alcohol in the finish.
M - Well carbonated for the style. Perhaps a bit overcarbonated.
O - A drinkable ESB. A bit unbalanced toward the bitter side but a decent example of the style.
Serving type: bottle

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.
Pours a clear copper color, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.
Doesn't smell like a whole lot, seems like it might be a little bit of a weak ESB. Some caramel, and grassy hop aromas.
The taste is similar. Just a little bit boring. Slightly grassy, but very muted hop flavors. A bit of watery malt flavor as well.
Light bodied, crisp, but watery mouthfeel, medium amount of carbonation.
Very forgettable, not recognizable as a ESB, no oomph whatsoever.
Serving type: on-tap
