Had one of these on tap at the Winchester on Main Street in Ventura.
It had a nice orangey golden look to it with a small white head. Had a decent orange scent. And the taste was citrusy/orangey as well. It's not too strong a taste. Sometimes these ESBs can get too fruity for me, but these one wasn't overwhelming in that regard. This would be an easy, sunny day drinker.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Pours like an IPA. Give it some head and it'll be just like you're at a bar.
S - Smells like a liquid forest.
T - Malty sweetness with some hops. At first you think the hops will be the predominant taste, but the brown sweetness takes over sip after sip. Good for what it is, though.
M - Goes down smoothly. A bit much on the caramel for me.
O - A quality ESB. If you are enticed by IPAs but don't want as much bitterness, start here! Won't be disappointed.
Serving type: bottle
