Draft at Smokehouse.

Poured clear dark amber hue with an average frothy off-white head that Mostly lasted with good lacing.

Moderate aroma of citrus hops and malt.

Medium body.

Well balanced flavor of malt and hops with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

This is a standout ESB brew.

A: Medium white head. Deep amber color. Low carbonation.

S: Medium hop aroma, smells like cascades. Sweet malt in the background.

T: A very well balanced ESB. Nice, mostly malt taste. Slight roast to the malt. Nice mid-palate hop bitterness. Very enjoyable, but not as good as my favorite ESB, Fuller's.

D: Very high.
