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.

On tap at Sticks and Stones in Greensboro, NC

Draft poured a dark brown into a pint glass. Minimal head with OK to thin lacing. There was minimal carbonation as well.

Taste had a hint of chocolate but other than that it was quite balanced.

Mouthfeel was smooth as with most ESBs.

This is a nice beer if you like ESBs and I'll order it again when I see it on tap.
