Bitters have been the common drink in english pubs for decades. Mill Street ESB uses only traditional ingredients, Marris Otter Malt and Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops, all inmported from England. With a light malt and hop in the nose, this copper coloured ale gives rise to a malty body with hints of chocolate and black currants. The hoppiness is always present but never out of balance in the style.

    Had this a the brewery Nov. 18 in Toronto On. This is a beer anybody would like. Very plain and delicious beer served at cellar temp. just like you would get in a pub in UK. I enjoyed this beer very much. Enjoyable!

    Got this one in the Mill Street Seasonal Sampler IV. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a small off-white cap with average retention and a bit of lacing. Aromas of roasted and caramel malts, mild dark fruits, hints of molasses and a little hop. The mouthfeel is pretty wet, kind of boring with no stickiness to it and falls short. The taste is a bit too mild as well. A lot compared to the decent nose. Watery caramel, bread and a tad hop bitterness in the end. I would like to see this one less diluted with more punch to it.

    The beer poured a translucent orange-red with a thin white cap. The aroma was floral and citrus hops, brown sugar, and caramel. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour had a burnt leaning to it, was grainy, with a bitter finish

    On tap from the MS pub: Tapped a clear amber-orange with a decent cap. Aromas: Caramel-bread-grassyness. Flavor profile: Pretty much a replica of the way it smells...a nice bready-caramel chew of malt blalanced well with a grassy-herbal hop profile...light bitter finish...not the intense bittering of a Brit ESB but very approachable and sessionable.

    This beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a medium-sized head. The aroma has a slight fruit hint that is offset by some mild malt and hop tones. The flavour is well balanced with some sweet malty hints and a nice hoppy finish.
