3.83/5 rDev +5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
This brew pours a red/copper color with an off white one finger head which lasts for a while. Almost no lacing and low carbonation.
The smell is sweet and roasted malts, nuts and apples and pears. Very malty.
The taste largely follows the nose with sweet malts dominating. There is also a burnt/roasted malt taste. There is also a fruit, apple/pear taste. Slightly nutty with just enough hops on the back end to keep this brew from becoming too sweet.
The mouthfeel is slightly chewy, mostly smooth. No bite or aftertaste.
Overall this is a good mix of malts, fruits and hops. With just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet I would not call it "Strong Bitter" but I would recommend it just the same.

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.
