3.48/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Orange-brown and a bit hazy, so-so head and lace.

Aroma and flavor are primarily malty, some toffee and caramel malt, some biscuit. A bit of hops for balance, but not pronounced.

Body is slick and finishes a touch sweet. Overall it's not bad but won't make my top three ESB's.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a standard American pint glass. This is a dark brown colored beer with a modest head. The aroma offers a light grassy hop smell backed with crackery malt. The taste offers a strong emphasis on the malt, with a little bit of roast and a lot of nuttiness. Bitterness is moderately high, though with not much hop flavor.

Pretty generic amber beer, but quite drinkable.

3.68/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Dark amber body with a thin, foamy head; sticky blobs of foam cling to the glass. Caramel malt aroma with slight hint of graham crackers and an initial, very faint note of raisins. Strong malty flavors with touches of cinnamon and a bright, hop bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied, semi-dry.

A big, malty ESB with plenty of character and presence.
