4/5 rDev +15.9%
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.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Copper orange, almost no carbonation, a finger of yellowish thick head, clear filtered.
S: Caramel, toffee, orange, dried grass, rich malts.
T: Slightly sweet toffee, little orange and dried grass.
M: Thick slightly gelatinous body, almost no carbonation. The head at first was thick like white bread and was fun to bite through.
O: Nicely done ESB. I think the nitro is a little lacking, though I tried a vigorous pour. Slightly sweet, but overall well done. Drank in Boca Raton, July 21st, 2014.

3.56/5 rDev +3.2%

Best by 9/03 and poured 7/08. $2.29 single.
Appearance: Poured completely vertically full force instantly into my glass. Gorgeous two finger head that honestly looks like memory foam. Beer bottle brown. Not much lacing, surprisingly. (4.25/5)
Smell: Pale malts. Grainy. Almost an adjuncty aroma. Slight hop spice with quite a lot of earthiness. A slight fruity character as well. (3.5/5)
Taste/feel: Again, quite grainy. A dark fruit quality comes through as well in the middle of the mouth. Finish is more graininess with a nice bit of hoppiness and a little bitterness. Feel's creamy, yet light. Easy drinking. (3.5/5, 3.75/5)
Solid. It has adjunct qualities to it that I actually don't mind at all just because I've (strangely) wanted a beer with this sort of graininess for awhile. It's light and not hugely interesting, but it's an enjoyable brew, and nitro bottles are always fun to pour.
