Appearance: Pours a hazy, copper body with a small, off-white head.
Smell: Strong scent of freshly-sliced grapefruits with a backing of pale malts.
Taste: Flash of pale malts and malty sweetness, then the flavor jumps into a hit of citrusy grapefruit with a moderate bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: I'm not sure I honestly care for the American slant to this noble English style.

A: Pours amber with a moderately sized frothy head that lingers and eventually subsides to patches of foam on the surface of the beer. Moderate lacing.
S: Balanced smell with citric hop aromas and a sweet malty smell.
T: Sweet and malty up front with a taste of stale Cheerios. Balanced in the finish a mild hop bittterness.
M: Medium-bodied with light carbonation. Crisp and somewhat dry.
D: This one still needs some work in the taste department, but I think it has the potential to be a great ESB.

On-tap @ The Brew Kettle on 4/18/07. The Brew Kettle stated that their Ringneck Amarillo ESB has a 6.5% ABV and 45 IBUs. It came to me in a nondescript standard American pint glass. I'm sure the Brew Kettle poured and served it to me at whatever the correct temperature is.
Their Ringneck Amarillo ESB was a clear golden orange with a tiny head of white foam that had decent retention that left behind a small spotty white film, white rings along the edge, and a few streaks of white sticky lace around the glass. The aroma had a huge helping of grapefruit and maybe just a trace of a slice of lemon, pine, and citrus hops in the background. The taste was very similar to the aroma, dominated by the grapefruit with just a few hints of lemon, pine, toasted malts, and then it finished off with a big bite of dried citrus hops. It had mouthfeel that was medium bodied, smooth, and with a slightly dry aftertaste of citrus hops and fruits. I usually don't care for ESBs, but I thought this was good. One of these was enough for me. If you like beers heavy in grapefruit and citrus hops, then run on over to the Brew Kettle today to try this one.
