3.93/5 rDev -4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Source/Serving: 750mL bottle
S: Red fruit and berry malt equally matched by pine hoppiness. Caramel and brown sugar in abundance. Hints of lemon-lime, guava oil, and toasted biscuit. Alcohol is noticeable and a little sharp.
T: Slightly sweet red fruit and plum malts up front are quickly balanced by grape skin/pine bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Sweet/bitter axis is well balanced, vacillating between brief mirages that its leans sweet or bitter at any moment. Pleasantly over the top. Notes of candied, juicy rasp-strawberry, lime, brown sugar, toasted earth, and kumquat. Pine/citrus bitterness is somewhat pithy and rough especially in the finish. Finish has notes of pine, green herbs, and is quite dry. Lingers tacky and thick on the tongue.

Gotta love the label graphic - nicely done
Looks like this was bottled about April 23rd 2013, so it's got a lot of age on it now! Bought at the end of last September and mistakenly aged. That might explain why it came across as more of an ESB than an American amber.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Nearly clear dark amber/copper with an inch plus offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t; First impression is its pleasing silky smoothness, followed by a nice caramel malt and hops balance. Sweet to dry finish. Its 8.65% ABV is well concealed.
m: Medium, silky smooth.
o: A very enjoyable and satisfying ESB-style ale, highly sippable and savory in texture and overall taste. I'd buy this again anytime of year. However I'll need to try a much fresher bottle to confirm this.
Serving type: growler
