4/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a copper/amber little hazy color with a rising fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer with great lacing from start to finish.

S: Wow floral hops upfront then the sweet malt pops in.

T: Flip the switch here.... I'm getting the sweet malt upfront with a nuttiness mixed in. The finish is a little bitter I'm getting a little herbal hops mixed in.

M: Nitro.... very creamy and smooth just as advertised.

O: A very good beer here.... well balanced and good ABV make this a pretty session worthy beer.

3.41/5  rDev -1.2%
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%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

(3.5/5)

Serving type: nitro-bottle
