3.65/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pour: Clear, effervescent bright yellow-orange color. Two fingers of tan head with average retention and some streaks of lacing on the glass.
Smell: Hints of citrus/lemon, pale malt, and some butterscotch.
Taste: A bit of lemon kicks things off up front which then fades into a sweet pale and caramel malt taste. Slightly yeasty middle which then fades into a light piney hop bitterness. Dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium with medium to high carbonation. Very clean.
Drinkability/Overall: Very sessionable and easy to drink. Has a refreshing quality to it.
Final Notes: A solid choice for a session or summertime beer. Not too filling, you could easily have a few of these in a setting. Not the best ESB I've ever had, but it really hits the spot after working up a sweat doing the Lindy Hop!

A: dark copper in color; off white head that dissipated quickly; almost no lacing;
S: toasted malt and yeast;
T: toasted malt up front; adds some sweet fruit in the med-palate along with a light bitterness in the background that builds through the finish (but never overwhelms); finish is relatively short and somewhat dry;
M: a little thin; prickly carbonation that flattens quickly when it hits your mouth;
O: well balanced; complex; enjoyable; easy to drink; would pair well with a wide variety of foods;
Serving type: on-tap

Clear amber pour with a dark ruby highlight and a massive head. Lacing and retention are exceptional. The nose is primarily biscuit with hints of sweetness and spice. Light bodied and well carbonated. The flavor profile is well balanced and complex. It begins with a nice biscuit that flows into the toffee and caramel notes. With a touch of sweetness, it transitions into the bitterness, which is an excellent example of an ESB. The finish is crisp and effervesces with a burst of caramel and well flavored bitterness.
