Tennessee Brew Works "Extra Easy"
on tap @ The Hop Stop, Nashville, TN on 8 April 2015

Notes: Clear deep amber body beneath a white head that holds quite well and leaves remarkable lacing about the glass (++++). Light buttery diactyl in the nose - most people probably wouldn't even notice it, but it's still a point of controversy; personally I like it as it's not too much, just an edge that gives it some character; and it may even be characteristic of the yeast they're using. Flavor brings in caramel, toffee... pear, peach, apricot, apple and some dark fruit skins as well. Leafy and grassy hops. Dry, minerals, and lightly bitter finish. Overall, really quite English in nature. Quite pleasant, and well worth seeking out - of all of the beers I've sampled from Tennessee craft breweries, this one is clearly my favorite basic ale (i.e. not a Belgian-style IPA, Imperial out, etc.).

Pours a hazy, brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong yeast, smoke, slight pale malt, sweet malt, alcohol, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an Extra Special / Strong Bitter. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of smoke, sweet malt, yeast, hint of hop, and alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, body, and feel.

A - Cedar red. Thin low wispy head. Lots of lacing. 4

S - bready sponge cake. Wheat. Malt. 4

T - sweet citrus notes malty sweet tastey 4.5.

M - smooth creamy great just great. 4

D - high drink-ability I guess it looses point for not being a very good ESB, but just as a tastey beer, it's fantastic.
