3.69/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.0 A: Clear light orange color. Half a finger of creamy off-white head. A small ring of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Grainy and toasty with caramel. Big dirty earthiness. Surprisingly big aromas for a nitro beer.

3.75 T: Tastes like it smells. Grainy, toasty, caramel, earthy malts. Mild earthy hoppiness.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Creamy, but much less creamy than I would have expected a nitro beer to be.

3.75 D: Solid beer and super drinkable.

I like nitros but, this one seemed flat, tasted grassy, bought a sampler six and this was my least favorite. I was actually surprised how bad this was.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Bottle says best by 05/05/14.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a lot of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.

Smell: A toasty, nutty, and fairly earthy malt forward aroma with hints of caramel and biscuit. Upfront toasted malts with hints of biscuit, grains, caramel, toffee, toasted bread, nuts, yeast, and cracker. Hints of earthy hops and grass. Slight hints of brown sugar sweetness. A pretty solid ESB style aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a nutty, toasty, and earthy malt driven taste with notes of biscuit and caramel. Bready toasted malts with upfront notes of bsicuit, grains, toffee, caramel, nuts, yeast, toasted bread, cracker, and yeast. Slight notes of brown sugar. Decent hop presence with earthy notes of grass. A solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a heavy amount of carbonation from the nitro. Very creamy and smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid take on the ESB style. Good nutty malt flavor with a nice touch of hops and cream from the nitro.

Bottle says to pour hard. I did and as an ESB, I got very little head and golden amber color that did not impress. Flavor up front was malt sweetness. Flavor was sort of flat, not very bitter and overall seemed to be watered down. Also felt flat on the palate and definitely lacked something, was very week....
