Served on-tap at the brewpub. Pours clear amber orange with a half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty streaks of lace on the glass.

Smells of caramel and toffee sweetness, mildly toasted grains, bit of what I can only assume is banana squash and some dulled grassy hops. Taste is pretty much the same with the toasty sweetness up front and the squash and dulled hops balancing it all out. Smooth feel with a bit of sweetness and bitterness mixed in.

Overall a decent hybrid bitter. It has some good flavor and isn't to over the top to drink. It is nice to try but there are way better beers on right now.

On tap at the TH AHE dinner.

An extra special bitter, made with some huge, freaky looking, mutant, pink-orange squashes. Clearish liquid, medium brown, with a small cap of white head. Aroma was bready and earthy. Tasted like your standard ESB really, nice and bready, crusty malts with a mild sweetness. I didn't really get much of a squash sensation, but I just it just blended in with the malt bill. Light-medium body, nice mouthfeel. A good ESB with easy drinkability.
