3.58/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours orange/pale copper. Just a tiny bit of haze, but pretty clear. Head is moderate, off-white. Retains short, lacy head.
S: Caramel jumps right up front. Malt definitely dominates. Slightly perceptible grassy quality in there, as well.
T: The strong caramel aroma doesn't hold up in the flavor. A mild bitterness rushes to the front with a decent malt presence following it. Doesn't really build up to much and fades quickly. Caramel comes back a bit in the after taste, and something else. Butter possibly.
M: Light and fairly carbonated. Takes on a watery quality quickly.
O: Easy to drink and not especially offensive. Probably wouldn't buy it again, but would have no trouble grabbing it if nothing else was available. Forgettable.

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;

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.
