BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: English Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
It's born of us being presented an experimental hop (#06300) by hopsteiner that among other things smelled like a cup of earl grey so we went home and built an ESB around it and touched it with bergamot to add to that tea notion. We only do it in casks because that just seemed right.

Served on cask at Carton's tasting room.
2nd time on Cask.... Just as good. 1-3-16 (Gotta get used to writing that date.

A: Pours a clear bronze into a tulip at room temp. Thick head lasts and laces.
S: Bergomot! You can smell just Enough. Cross between Earl Grey and gun powder.
T: Follows smell, but more so. Unique, complex. Would try another. Caramel, biscuity like most ESBs but smoother, less cloying. I like it.

MF: Great finish. Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

Another style - ESB - that is one notch above most US brewers AND with an original flavor tweak.
That seems to be Carton signature.
