Dark amber body with a good head on it. Nose had quite a bit of toasted malts, yet sweet as well. Hops add a nice balance to the nose. Taste was full of flavors and packed quite a punch. Big malts start out with some caramel mixing in. Citrus hops start kicking in the middle and lasts into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was medium and the texture was quite creamy. Not a bad ESB.

Vermont Pub- Dogbite Bitter
Appearance- Dark mahogany brown with a medium head and decent lacing.
Smell- Nutty caramel malt and grainy bread aroma. Wheat, sunflower seeds, oats.
Taste- Nice hazelnut meets caramel malt. Dry nutty earthy hops blend in evenly.
Mouthfeel- Flavor is big and holds up throughut. some dry bitterness in he end.
Overall- The best offering at the Vermont pub. Definitely worth stopping off here for just this beer alone.

This pours a mahogny with a large foamy head. The smell is all hops. The taste has a creamy hop bitterness with some cider spices. The m/f is medium with the flavors being well balanced. This is one of this pubs better offerings and one of the better ESB's I've had.

One of their current best. Good head, bitter, an ESB with fuggles and Goldings. Less carbonated and more natural bitter than their other offerings. Carmel. Thin-medium. Dark amber with a bit of a head. Your session ale. Would like it to have less sweetness.

Poured a dark brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.
The smell featured round bready malts and a grassy hop spice.
The taste consisted of toasted bready malts, a touch of honey and an herbal and grassy hop.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a gentle carbonation.
Overall a tasty sessionable bitter.

First had: on tap at their brewpub
Poured a slightly hazy copper, with a moderately lacing off-white head. Grainy aroma, caramel notes, light floral hops. Light biscuity taste, caramel and toffee, subdued, and a touch of hop bitterness for balance. Not extremely flavorful, but mellow, and drinkable, and on the heavier side of light-bodied. Decent.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazed caramel-copper coloring with a filmy, bright-white head. Nose of cream and subtle bitterness. Flavors are creamy and bitter, very blended and balanced, with a clean finish. The aftertaste is minimal, with a steady sweetness. Full bodied and very tasty. Easy to drink with the lower ABV.

Served on tap at the VPB. Appearance is a deep dark amber color, with a healthy white head gracing the top. Aroma is sweet and malty, just a bit of hop making an appearance. The hop bitterness comes right out at first but is buried in sweet, chewy, malt flavor. Finishes off with just a bit of bitterness and caramel sweetness. Medium body, quite drinkable, but not spectacular.

This is a very British interpretation of the style. The beer is a bit cloudy with an orangey amber color. The nose was very weak, good lacing. The beer is of the Noble Hop variety. It is watery and has a very thin malty mid section that needs lots more body. The beer is a touch herbal, tea like, that has all the characteristics of an English ale. It wasn't my favorite and I moved on from the sampler

Beer pours a light copper color. The smell is malty with some hint of bitterness. The taste is about the same, although the beer gets kind of sour towards the back of the throat. Nothing really special here. A decent garden-variety bitter that seems easy drinking. I remember having it before where it seemed as hoppy as their Bombay Grab but I don't see that in this batch.

Nice light bronze hue, very true to the style. Film head persists with spot lacing. Some malt and faint toffee in the nose. Taste has alot of malt upfront, with some hops in the finish, although I think there should be a bit more. Pretty balanced though. Very soft and somewhat chewy mouthfeel. I would look to this one as a session brew. Overall a good beer.

A bit hoppier than the tap version, with a noticable dry hopping to the aroma. The appearance is the same, with better head retention. Much more pungent floral hoppiness, which adds a touch more bittering in the finish. The malt seems a bit richer, with a more pronounced toasty flavor and a bit more caramel sweetness, which balances out the amplified hopping perfectly. Slightly fuller body, with ultra smooth, soft carbonation and a bit richer of a mouthfeel. Almost a bit chewy, with a touch of peach esteriness.
If this is on the beer engines when you visit, do yourself a favor and get a pint.
