3.58/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Murky dark red/brown. Hazy, but a nice redness there. Modest white head that dissipates to a thin, lasting layer. Big piney hop scent with some light, tropical fruit resembling pineapple, malt contribution is completely overpowered by hops. Flavor is sweet, with caramel malts primary, and again fruity hops. Not enough biscuit flavor. Mouthfeel is about right - good body for the style, appropriate carbonation, dry finish.

Overall, this beer is a little over-hopped, and leaves something to be desired on the malt side of things. It is a tasty beer, but not really what I would prefer in an ESB.

This beer was a really good beer. I enjoyed this beer. I liked the cream color, and the fluffy amber color head that it has. I enjoyed the pine citrus hops smell that it had. It had a dry finish with this beer. I could taste the pine, citrus, floral, earthy hops that it has. It also had a caramel sweetness to it that I liked a lot as well.

3.43/5  rDev -8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1” fluffy cream colored head, recedes at a moderate rate with lots of lacing. Amber color with a cloudy appearance (probably hop sediment in suspension), significant carbonation bubbles streaming up.
Aroma: Pine and citrus hops dominate the smell. There is some detectable malt as well in the background (a bit of earthy, bready odor).
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, just slightly sticky, highly carbonated in the mouth (almost like drinking a cola), somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: Fairly well balanced as the hops dominate from start to finish – pine, citrus, and floral, even a hint of English type earthy hops. The biscuit quality of the malt helps to even out the taste and there is some caramel sweetness also.
Overall: Great job Sweetwater!
