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.
