On tap at the brewery, quick review from written notes.
Two imperial pints paired perfectly with Smalls fried chicken & Sticky Rice goodies, thanks Jay!
Bright burnished copper color, perfect clarity, creamy head with a velvety surface texture from the nitro. Long lasting coverage, the head never breaks for the duration of the glass. Decent malt toastiness, slight maple and a light floral note. Grainy with a slight staleness for some reason. Smooth and light bodied with a creamy feel, lower carbonation emulates a cask serving. Finishes clean and dry. Overall a pretty nice English Bitter with an authentic British character about it.

Had at rev. Poured from nitro-tap into a mug club mug. Pours a copper color with a nice head.
Very good aromas of toffee, bitter hops, amber grains, and some savory earth notes. Nice depth as well to it.
Medium bodied with a very good feel. Balanced with notes of bitter hops, toffee and some earthen tones.
This is a real quality ESB. This is one I hope rev does more often as it hits all of the right spots.

Nitro at the brewpub. Served in a pint glass.
A - It's your typical, gorgeous, nitro pour. Persistent light tan foam lingers, eventually leaving behind splotches of lacework. Transparent copper body. Looks a lot like a hand-pump beer in jolly old England.
S - It's very traditional here as well, with biscuit malts, a lightly sharp and toasty note, and earthy and tea-like hops. I appreciate that this avoids the metallic twang I occasionally get from English ales, but the hops have a mildly astringent black tea flavor to them. Some fruity ale yeast undercurrents.
T - Taste is superior, with more of the toasty, bready, and toffee-tinged English malts. Earthy hops provide a touch of flavor and some mild bitterness, but thankfully the astringent tea flavor is gone. It's got that quintessential liquid bread vibe that English ales tend to have.
M - Smooth nitro carbonation, creamy texture, with a very clean finish. Perhaps a touch of grain to it, but otherwise goes down very easily. No perceptible alcohol.
D - A very convincing English ale, with the nitro serving giving it an authentic cask-like vibe. I know some people don't dig English hops very much, and those people won't really enjoy this beer. However, if you grew up with nitro-cans of Boddingtons this will be a big hit.
