Pours a nice amber color with a finger thick tan head that forms on top. Nothing fancy, but nice overall appearance.
Aroma is of grassy & biscuity hops aroma, along with a slightly grapefruit also. Again, nothing fancy, just a solid aroma.
Flavor follows the aroma. A bit of grassy, herbal hops flavor along with touch of sugary candy toward the finish. A strong bitterness takes over with this one, and it makes me pucker just a bit. Very nice!
Smooth body (medium) along with enough carbonation to make my tongue tingle. Drying finish.
Fairly drinkable. It's not my favorite style on the planet, but I do enjoy an ESB from time to time. This one fits the style pretty well, minus just a bit more bitterness that would help it I think. Maybe some golding hops would help it?
