Harmon Brown’s Point ESB

CIMG3700

This is one of the first Harmon beers that I’ve ever had from this Tacoma brewery. This ESB uses a hop oil essence of Fuggle hops. Interesting, let’s see how it tastes.

Stats:
Extra Special Bitter. 5.4% ABV. 40 IBUs. Washington.

Color is burnt orange and hazy. Head fades very quickly.

Nice nose with brown sugar, vanilla, honey, apricots, and I’m getting a little hint of cranberry.

Very nice mouthfeel, medium to full bodied.

Good everything, but the palate is a bit of a let down. The flavor is of the aroma, but not as sweet as you’d expect and a hop presence that adds a fairly decent amount of bitterness. The problem lies in that the flavor is awfully shallow and seems to die on the midpalate, and you are just left with this bitter-sweet presence on the tongue.

It’s a work in progress. 83 points.
