Style | ABV
English Bitter |  4.30% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer can probably be best described stylistically as a Special Bitter - a session beer for sure. We used 100% of a new U.S. hop variety called Sonnet, hence the "poetic" reference.

3.28/5  rDev -8.6%

pours a medium amber/brown color with a small head (though it was filled to the top).

nice aromas of toffee, caramel, some bitter hops and grains. Balanced with nice depth.

Medium bodied with a nice feel but lacking some depth. Nice flavors of grains, toffee, and caramel

A solid bitter, but lacking some depth on the feel. Decent, but a bit disappointing in a sense (though much better than the village green from last year).

On-tap at Revolution. Served in a mug.

A - Filled to the brim so it's hard to get a feel for head volume or retention. The dime of white foam settles to a collar, mottled partial cap, and a few spots of lace. Transparent amber-brown body.

S - Biscuty malts, some toffee, fruity English yeast, some very mild butter, malted milk chocolate balls (i.e. Whoppers), and toasted grains. Hop presence is pretty faint, but vaguely grassy - not really getting a feel for what Sonnet hops are all about.

T - Taste is significantly less sweet, with more bread and grain character and less of the biscuit and caramel-type flavors that dominate the aroma. Not bad, but not as interesting or complex as it smells.

M - Medium body that is pleasantly hefty for the listed 4.3%. It's a tad watery, and the carbonation is a bit harsh for an English-style beer, but otherwise it's solid.

D - A solid session ale that's a change of pace from Workingman Mild. A solid, malty, low-ABV English ale - should appeal to loves of session ales, but not Revotion's most interesting or inspired effort. Easy enough to drink an entire mug though!

Served in a pint glass at Revolution 4/8/12. Thanks to HeatherAnn, pops, and Roman for the assist!

A: Served a lovely gold with snatches of light brown. Capped with one finger of bright white foam that quickly melted away, this left a small amount of lace to decorate the glass.

S: This one touches all the bases. Slightly sweet caramel, toasted grain, and delicate hoppiness.

T: Exactly as above.

M: Light on the tongue with a lingering spicy hoppiness that hangs around for ages.

O: An excellent session ESB. Hopefully they keep this on through the summer. If so, they'll sell a bunch of it.
