2.68/5  rDev -20.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

a hazy amber pour with very little head which quickly disappeared. smells of molasses, caramel - very subtle. tastes a bit tinny, sweet caramel like malt, a bit bready, slight bitter finish.. just like the smell, lacking in character. light to medium bodied - light body with a nice creaminess to it, moderately carbonated.

this is a very standard red/esb.. i tend to really like esb's, but this one was just very mellow with flavor/smell, and not really that impressive with mouthfeel and the appearance. i've had worse, but i've also had way better.

3.53/5  rDev +5.1%
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 -2.4%
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.

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.
