3.5/5 rDev -4.4%
Sampling right now on 5/29/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 'Empyrean Brewing Co." pint glass. LOT the artwork on this bottle and is updated from what the picture shows on here.
Pours a copper-amber in color with a good 3/4 finger off-white head. A good amount of spotty lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is of some caramel and hops for the most part. The taste is about the same with some spice in it as well. A slight 'hoppy' finish is noted but doesn't linger. Typical of the 'ESB' style beers

Poured from a 12oz Bottle into a Pint glass with a nice white head and a cloudy apricot color, a little lace on the glass. Aroma was spicy and solid malt, a hint of alcohol in the mix. Taste held black pepper notes and a malty finish, solid for this brew. Mouthfeel was smooth at first and finished dry and spicy. Overall a nice ESB, local and I will grab it again!

A- Poured into a Brau Brothers Pint Glass- Pours nice honey color with a thin white head. Lacing is beautiful sticks around for awhile.
S- Smells of sweet bread and I mean sweet. Toasted busicuit also in there, very little hop aroma to me
T- I am very sensitive to bready tasting beers and that is what I get here. Like wet buscuits or crackers. Better the warmer it gets but just not my favorite. Lightly hopped. (I do not eat bread so bread tasting things are hard for me to like)
M- Nice creamy mouthfeel, not like a stout but not watery as it kind of looks.
Can see how many others would like this beer, but just doesn't fit with what I enjoy.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
The beer pours a amber copper color with a white head that turns into a wisp. Good world map lacing covers the glass.
The aroma is hoppy, then sweet caramel and crackers come in.
The beer tastes really well balanced. Warm sweet malts bring in caramel before giving way to a clean, dry hop bite. There's a nice bready, cracker heartiness in here too.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and clean.
Overall, probably one of my favorite beers from this brewery.
