12 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours an orange/amber color with a frothy off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. It smells like toasted malt and a bit of citrusy (orange) hops. The aroma is more sweet than bitter. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like toasted malt, grain, and a bit of sweet citrus (mostly orange). There's also a slight bitter hoppy aftertaste. I think it tastes similar to an ESB, but that's just me. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit creamy and has good carbonation. Drinkability is good, it's smooth and easy to drink. Overall I think this is a decent enough beer. It's interesting enough to have this as an occasional session beer. I'd try this again in the future, but since Mt. Carmel doesn't distribute to Columbus (yet) I'll have to settle for picking up their products when I make trips to Cincy or Dayton.
