Poured from tap into pint at 12south Nashville. Pours a deep seethrough brown with nice looking head. Pretty much no aroma...so I didn't penalize it but its not good.
Taste is pretty boring but not offensive. Just blah...alt like watery malt. Meh
Its very mild and boring...not bad, just boring.
I wouldnt get again.

On tap at Barley's, Asheville, NC.

Poured a medium amber hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a delightful mix of toasted malts and herbal hops.

The taste was very well balanced with a push toward the toasty breadiness of the malts. The vibrant herbal hop made its presence known however.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a well made ESB.
