Had this on tap at the Old Toad in Rochester, NY.
A: Poured into a pint glass and had a deep amber hue. A good almost 2 finger head was obtained, and it lasted and left a good amount of lacing on the glass.
S: It seemed to be a little weak in the smell department. What I could smell was some malts, carmel and butterscotch.
T: I had a little trouble discerning the taste. It honestly wasn't too strong of a taste, again mostly malts. Somewhat buttery as well.
M: Rather thick and creamy, moderate carbonation. I did enjoy the way this felt in my mouth as it was somewhat chewy but moderately refreshing.
D: Not a bad beer at all, just not stellar either. Might be a good session beer as it has a fairly neutral but sweet taste. It didn't kill my palate like the peche I had after it.
Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
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.
