3.23/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear dark orange form the can. Rising bubbles are seen. A very thin ecru head. Very sweet malt aroma of orange and candied yams with carmel sauce with some earth hops behind. Taste does not follow. Taste is hops: pinecone-woody and grapefruit skin. There is a sharp tang in there as well, not metallic. Decent.

3.53/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer is transparent with a copper body. An inch or so of creamy, off-white head sits on top. The aroma brings sweet breads, fruit, malt. Hop character emerges more in the flavor than the aroma, offering a light bitterness mid to late palate. Subtle pine and resin amid a fruity, slightly sweet malt bill. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

3.28/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Thick white head. Foam stuck to the sides of the glass all the way down. Dark red to malt brown. Light on the bubbles.

S: Sweet. Pine and tree sap. Slightly floral.

T: Sweet up front again. A hoppy backbone comes in and finishes with leather and mahogany.

M: A bit thick and chewy. On the dry side. Could benefit from more crispness to clean the palate. Slight metallic/mineral aftertaste.

O: Just didn't work for me. Too dry. Not very refreshing and not nearly enough crispness. Bought this can on a trip to Phoenix, I liked all the beers from the Four Peaks taster tray better.

3.71/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Type: 22-oz. bomber
Glass: Manzanita pint glass
From: A Whole Foods in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: Est. $5.99
Purchased: May 16, 2013
Consumed: May 30, 2013
Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel copper murky color with 1-2 fingers of khaki-white head, which went away rather quickly. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides. Average-to-below average retention all the way down.

Smelled dark fruits, including plum, figs and dates. Also caramel and toffee malts and roasty nuts.

Tasted pretty similar to the nose with a bit more maltier feel. Plum, figs, dates, nuts, toast, caramel and toffee.

Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish.

Pretty good beer for my second try from Lumberyard. I’m still new on the ESB’s, but I would have it again.

3.36/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A light tan head settles into a nice lacing above a clear bright copper-reddish colored beer.

Light roasted malt aroma with nice hops presence coming through as well.

Roasted caramel malt presence in the taste is balanced with a fair amount of almost citrus like hops.

A lighter dryish aftertaste that harbors some of the roasted malt tastes on this medium bodied beer.

Decent enough example of this style of beer, I wouldn't mind downing a few of these on any given afternoon.
