Had on tap in a pint glass
Appearance - Hazy orange copper color with a nice off colored head which fades to give a nice layer of foam.
Smell –Toffee and carmel are the first to the nose followed by a bit of more bready and a little bit of roastiness. A small amout of citrus somes in at the end but is largly overwhelemed by the more potent sweet and malty aroma’s.
Taste – The breadiness first meets the tongue. Not as much as would have been oringally expected. The sweetness of the caramel then comes through. While a bit of citrus hop is present in the smell, very little is detectable in the taste, however a little bit of floral flavor can be detected as some of the sweet flavors fade a bit
Mouthfeel – As with most hand pulled a bit low on carbonation for me. The body however was nice and creamy making up for the lack of carbonation.
Overall – An easy drinking beer. Could use a bit more maltyness but otherwise enjoyable.

On-tap, via nitro, at the Millheim brewpub.
A: The ESB is a darker caramel color, very thick looking. A creamy off-white head comes along, lacing in thick lines. A nice looking ale.
S: The nose has plenty of toffee, the dominant malty aroma. Hops come in a little later, citrusy but mild, they know their place.
T: Toffee sweetness, the malty side doesn't hide itself away. Darker, more toasted flavors follow, still bready and nearly as sweet. Hops are present, a bit of citrus and earthiness amongst the malts. A minerally flavor hangs out too.
M: Very quaffable, the nitro adding a strong creaminess that fits in well with the abundant toffee.

On nitro-tap at Elk Creek on 11/6/10.
A - Hazy copper-tinted orange liquid with a finger's width of creamy beige head that reduced to a thin, sheer retention but deposited sheet-like lacing around the perimeter of the glass.
S - Classic ESB aroma with caramel and bready malts, toffee notes, a hint of floral and perfumy hops.
T - Sweet and malty up front with caramel malt as well as hints of baked bread, cookie dough and toffee candy. Hop character combines floral notes with a hint of light perfumes. Bitterness is a bit more assertive than your average ESB, which I enjoyed.
M - Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a solid medium body. Wonderful texture overall. Finish is mildly bitter and semi-dry.
D - Elk Creek pretty much nailed the style here. This is the definition of a session beer. Gotta love an ESB on nitro! Tasty and ridiculously easy to quaff.
