The beer was amber/brown with a white head. As the beer was drunk it left lovely lacing all the way down the glass. The beer was slightly hazy. The smell was hoppy from a dry hop or probably fuggles and cascades? The taste was roasty with a bit of fruitiness. It had good body. I think it might be Burtonized as well? Overall I thought it might be just a smidge too roasty.

Served on-draught into a taster glass at Wynkoop. Reviewed from notes. Cost was $1.00.
A: Pours a two finger head - somewhat thin - of nice foamy froth, hardly any cream, and good retention. Body colour is a nontransparent dark copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Buttery, with toasted malt, very light subtle hop hints, tea notes, and clean malts. Maybe even a bit of yeast. A delightful, pleasant, inviting aroma. Spot on for an ESB. A mild strength aroma.
T: Buttery, with cream, heavy toffee, maybe truffle, and light backgrounded toasted malts forming a simple foundation. Strangely built. Popcorn-esque in its buttery character. Maybe even some candy corn. Decently balanced. Certainly different.
Mf: Buttery, overly smooth, and too wet. Somewhat watery. Slightly undercarbonated. Light, weak and thin. This needs work.
Dr: Drinkable but strangely built. I wouldn't get this one again.
Serving type: on-tap

nice casked esb. pours a rich copper color with a classic one inch white head. smells extremely malty, english style, biscuity, doughy, even pretzely. flavor is more balanced the nose, but this is still a malt feature. mild bittering hops in the finish. feel is good from the cask, but this one seems too light on the body for an english esb. body is lighter than medium, but the feel is still smooth from the cask pump. overall one of the more sessionable interesting beers at wynkoop, and one i, sure i will end up drinking again.
