2.73/5 rDev -18.3%
A: Hazy, orange, amber. thin head.
S: sour, citrus notes, a mix of sweet and tart
T: taste like a wild yeast strain to me, due to the sourness. The sourness is not over powering, but more so complimented by a sweetness from the malt and a slight, "hey buddy" from the hops (almost not noticeable). Definitely picked up citrus notes and a sort of tang/tartness on the finish. The finish is surprisingly crisp.
M: carbonation is pretty standard, tingles the tongue slightly.
D: Definitely does not taste like an ESB. Taste like a summer wheat, with a wild yeast fermentation and more hops/body.
I really like the beer and I would drink many more, but to call it an ESB just doesn't seem far and my rating reflects this.

3.63/5 rDev +8.7%
A - Poured a crystal clear, orange-amber color with a small, bubbly, white head of thin foam. It left little to no lacing.
S - It smelled malty sweet with caramel notes. There were touches of grassy hops present.
T - A nice sweet, malty ESB with a sharp yet subtle hop kick. A nice balance of bitter hops and sweet malt.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale.
D - This is pretty nice ESB. It fits the style pretty well but doesn't do anything out of the ordinary. It's very sessionable and worth a try.

Pours a clear, red/amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hops, and yeast. Fits the style of an ESB. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hops, yeast, and slight earthy toffee flavor. Overall, a drinkable ESB, being smooth and having a noticeable malt content.
