3.2/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from a bottle in a pint glass.

A - Lovely amber/copper color. The beast feature of this beer.

S - Really not much going on. Low hop aroma. Low malt aroma. Nothing bad though.

T - Again, not much going on, but it is well balanced, I prefer a slightly maltier and bready taste. This does not have it, however what flavor there is comes off as pleasant, yet pedestrian.

M - Consistent for this style.

D- As this beer does not blow me away, I don't see my self being able to drink more than one or two, however, it is not undrinkable.

Overall - Not a bad beer, but not the ESB style I prefer. A decent gateway beer, which in this city(Atlanta), is a good marketing idea. I hope it does well.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark copper color with a nice two finger cream colored head. The head falls slow with some good lacing.

Aroma is nice toasted malts with nice fruity notes. Some light hop aroma floral with some over ripe fruit. Who know maybe the fruits more from the malt then the hops. Either way nice smelling ESB.

Taste is nice toasted malts good caramel hints some ripe fruity notes. Hops in the finish seem more earthy with touches of pine. Good malt flavors with just enough hops for an ESB.

Mouthfeel is solid medium carbonation is smooth with a light pep towards the finish.

Overall very well done ESB great way to represent a style.
