Hazy, murky amber color. Tannish head, thin. Good lacing. Malt and hop aroma. Same with the flavor. Great balance. Stronger than most ESBs, but still balanced. A hop/malt bomb. A tamer version of their Hop Zombie IPA. Very enjoyable, very drinkable. I could have this every day. Another great, solid beer from Uncle Billys.

The beer pours an amber color with a huge white head. The aroma is toffee with some grassy hops. The flavor is toffee, grass and earth with low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A pretty basic ESB, but it is well executed and easy drinking.

Amber/copper color with a chill haze. 1/2" off white head that retains at 1/4". Thick lace. Aroma is malty..caramel...faint citrus and floral hops. Nice bready malt. Caramel. Hopped higher than a traditional ESB and the hops have more of a West Coast bite and flavor. Medium body and medium carbonation. Nice beer with good drinkability.

On tap at Uncle Billys. Pours a dark, thick amber color with a light beige head. Smell is fruity, nutty and very nicely balanced. Taste is same with a good dose of hops for the style. I'd say it's to style overall, but a tad bolder and touch richer and more flavorful, than normal. Nicely fruity faint nuttiness and crisp bittering. Good mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very good beer!
