4.63/5  rDev +25.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Poured a deep amber color with a two finger head that dies down in a minute or two. Nice, persistent lacing as I proceeded through the glass.

S - Nutty, malty aromas come out strongest, followed by citrus and hops.

T - A (IMO) well balanced hop / malt character with some interesting citrus notes. At one point I think I got a little cantaloupe (!) taste. Mildly bitter finish, though less so than an IPA.

M - Very pleasant, almost creamy. Makes mouths happy.

D - Very drinkable, seesionable even.

I love this stuff. I admit my experience with the style is limited to this beer, but I think this would hold its own against all comers. I keep this in my regular rotation.

Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark brown hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates leaving a good trail and semi wispy lace.

S: Sweet caramel malt aroma.

T: Smooth caramel malty flavors that finishes on the dry side.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Solid ESB – great flavors and aromas.
