Nice aroma with both hops and malt evident.

Dark brown color.

Nice cream head, dissipates in a few minutes.

Hops are evident in the initial taste, but the malt taste is also there; a very good balance.

This is a well done interpretation of an English bitter.

Smooth and creamy feel. This beer has a more substantial body and mouth feel than does the Badger Hill Brewing MSB, and is not as hoppy as the Surly Bitter Brewer. In fact, this now supplants the Surly as my favorite Minnesota-brewed bitter, unless I am looking for having several on a hot summer afternoon ... the Surly's lower ABV is an advantage over the 14⁰ ESB when you want several.
