This is a review of the Black Star High Esteem dry-hopped with zythos hops and served on cask.

This is an amber golden color with some foamy bubbling hanging out. It’s nicely hopped, and apparent from the aroma. Tastes floral with a touch of bitterness and a honeyed biscuit-malt taste. Finishes nicely, and I wish they served this one in full pints because it’s really tasty. The zythos hops give their High Esteem a character and complexity that is welcomed and wonderful.

Serving type: cask

On tap at the brewpub.

The beer pours a brownish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the grass and bready malt with some orange citrus notes mixed in. The flavor is similar. I get some rye and bitter grassy hop notes as well as some earthy hops and some bready malt. There is a little bit of orange and other citrus notes in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

Tried on tap at Black Star, 8 Jan 2011.

Small off white head. Minimal carbonation. Slightly hazy golden yellow. Sweet tart aroma, slightly lemony. Starts mineraly, slightly tart. Floral through the middle. Moderately bitter finish. Somewhat puckery. Lots of pithiness, not much citrus. Medium body. Alcohol not very noticeable. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

Serving type: on-tap
