I decied to retry Mill Street as i know people who love their stuff.
Poured from a bottle into a a pilsner glass.
Light amber, minimal head.
Aroma....what aroma.. ESB? I dont smell anything apart from a subtle malt.
Taste....Hmmm...Minerally, "corn" like...Tastes like a lager. Very very light with a crips finish. I'd say almost 0 hop in here. I can barely perceive any bitterness. I'm comparing this to a good ESB like FUller's and Propeller. This is just undrinkable to me.
Reminds of a big-brand discount beer. Again, Mill Street disapoints. I have no idea how people are so impressed with this place. I suppose its meant for the Masses but there are FAR better ESB's out there. This is a lager, not an ESB.

On tap @ the Mill St., Toronto Pearson airport.
Clear copper with great head retention
The smell is faint - but there's biscuity malt and some earthy, mild English hops
Taste is classic ESB: mild earthy hops and a slightly nut-bread malt profile
Finishes dry, slow to aftertaste
Really nice, great companion on a layover to Vancouver
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a 355-ml bottle into a pub ale glass.
Appearance: Amber-copper colour with a creamy-beige head that sticks around for a bit then thins to a layer of surface foam.
Smell: Woody roasted malt aromas.
Taste: A tasty and refreshing malt flavour that gives way to more intense hop flavours at the end. The aftertaste is moderately heavy and sweet.
Mouthfeel: A bit of a ride with a softer start and then more action as the hops come forward.
Overall: Not a bad beer by any means, I could definitely put a few of these away.
