A - Dark copper and hazy with a small khaki head that shows some staying power.
S - Toasted malt notes with some burnt marshmallow and a gentle wisp of flowery hops. Yeasty and creamy aromas abound. Mellow and understated, but this nose is quite complex!
T - Biscuit-y malt with a big perfumed hop note on top. Initially flowery and slightly fruity.... sweeter fruits like melon, not the more abrasive citrus fruits typically associated with hops. Finishes a little bit grassy and some more grapefruit comes out.
M - Medium bodied and solid. This one maintains a balanced feel for almost a minute before the citrus hop notes come out to play and the mouthfeel progresses toward dry.
This is an extremely balanced and well made beer! I like that it's not off the wall or crazy, but still has enough complexity to keep you thinking and swishing. Major session potential.

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.
