3.9/5 rDev +4.3%
Consumed March 10th, 2012 at the brewery.
Beer presents as a clear, light reddish/caramel. A fine, off-white head provides excellent sheeting (as with all of this brewery's fare).
Aroma is defined by a touch of soapiness and roasted nuts.
Great flavor: toasty caramel and toffee malts up front with some fruity esters. Slightly sweet. Low bitterness.
Well carbonated with good mouthfeel.
Very drinkable: sort of splits the difference between a traditional ESB and a brown ale. One of the better PBB beers.

I have had this beer several times at the brewery and served at a professional beer pairing dinner pour into a standard pint glass.
A: clear light colored beer, decent head, dissipates quickly.
S: hoppy, citrus smell, nothing over the top as you would expect from an ESB.
T: definitely not a strong ESB, which may be good or bad depending on your taste. Not overly hoppy, well balanced smooth, easy to drink so I would not classify it as an ESB as it is just not very hoppy or bitter. I was surprised when I first tasted this as I expected more hops and bitterness.
M: crisp clean drinking beer
Overall: I enjoy this beer and it may be my favorite PBB beer. Again the name is misleading as this is not an overly bitter beer and not overly hoppy. A good beer that would appeal to many types of beer drinkers.
