Poured reddish brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is muted with caramel, yeast and floral notes. Taste is like an ESB with heavy malt yeast and bitter earthy hops. Moderately clean finish with sweet malty tones

Described as a cross between an APA and a ESB. Right up my alley.

Pours a amber copper with a white head. Aroma is full of english malts giving off some sweet breed and toffee, hops offer some florals, grass, and mild citrus tones but take second fiddle to the malts. Flavor follows suit. A creamy, medium bodied bouthfeel. Overall, a solid, not complex beer that I enjoyed. Would drink again.
