A: Appearance is of a dark red/amber roasty color with a minimalistic head that is typical of what one would expect from a beer which went a bit flat.

S: Crisp clean and refreshing with a hint of what seems to be, dust!? Generally makes me want to take a sip.

T: The beer has a well balanced profile of sweet malts and hops that hit all of the right notes.

M: While the surprising lack of carbonation in this brew leave something to be desired, they also made way for a drink which was surprisingly smooth and refreshing.

O: I picked this up as well as the non-nitro version at the same time I bought both milk stouts from Left Hand. My plan was to compare both styles and see how that effects flavor etc. While the flavor here may be crisper and smoother than the original, it seems as though the lack of carbonation in this bottle detracts from the brew more than one would think. I think in the future I'll stick with the original.

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.

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.

This review was generous. I know Ledt Hand is capable of better. Just not thrilled with the style overall
