This strong bitter takes the more traditional route of the bitter ale with a soft hop presence, a pleasant fruity and diacetyl combo, and easy drinkability. It's great to find an American made bitter which takes the traditional route.

Sample via a sixteen-ounce pour off the hand-pump at Toronado.

This is a very nice bitter, obviously leaning taste-wise towards the ESB range, but possessing an extraordinarily—and surprisingly pleasing—thinness of texture. A very dark brown, with red tinting backed by light, belies the lack of sweetness or malt flavor. Only on the nose does one detect a hint of grain, but even then the odor is primarily vegetal bitterness. A very good ale for a dingy, dark pub—though perhaps better suited to colder weather than the climate San Francisco usually affords.

On tap at Flavor bistro in Santa Rosa and served in a Moonlight brewing pint glass (which are really nice). Dark amber color, massive amazing head, it looks great and I usually don't weight much based on appearance (unless it looks like shit). Aroma was really nice and mild maltiness. Flavor was great, you don't find many delicious American bitters. This was bitter, sort of nougat and caramel, well balanced and just delicious.
