Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a very lightly hazy amber color with a light brown tint. The head is big and billowy and has fantastic retention. Over time it very slowly recedes and the large bubbles of the head pop. In the end the receding head leaves a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a caramel sweetness. Mixed with this is a roasted malt aroma, some light molasses notes as well as a faint herbal smell.
Taste – The taste starts out more roasted malt and biscuit in nature with some tastes of a sweet caramel. A hop flavor of an earthy and herbal nature then come to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. These flavors intensify while most of the caramel dissipates. Overall a roasty, buttery and biscuit flavor mixed with a moderate herbal hop flavor are left on the tongue. Very ESB like in my opinion maybe with just a bit sweeter and more roast then most ESB’s.
Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel was above average in body as it had a more creamy and smooth then most. The carbonation level was rather low. The low carbonation mixed with the creaminess gave it more of a cask like taste (even out of the bottle) and actually also gave it more the ESB feel as the taste also gave.
Overall – Very nice. It starts sweeter and gets more hoppy and bitter as the taste advances. Quit easy drinking and delicious.
