Recently tasted, at the newish Climax micro-brewery, Roselle Park, New Jersey.
Three complex but easily drinkable beers:
ESB: Attractive medium-amber color, with dense head. Light to medium body, smooth. Clean, soft, malty start. Developing honeyish notes and finishing with a late, dry, subtle, hoppiness.
IPA: Bronze. Medium body. Smooth, layered, malt background; very long. Late, soft development of hop character. As the style suggests, a hoppier beer, but remarkably well balanced and complex.
Porter: Deep brown to black. Medium body, soft, very smooth, slightly oily. Nutty, with lots of chocolate and some coffee. Beautifully rounded. Made with nine grains, as a nod to Porter's predecessor Entire.
