4/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy medium copper with a 2 finger bubbly white head. Lots of sediment floating around. Decent lacing throughout.
Smell: Sweet caramel malt with a hint of floral and citrus hops.
Taste: Sweet citrus up front followed by caramel in the middle and toasted malt with just a hint of hops at the finish. Mildly bitter, dry and smoky aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Very high drinkability. You could knock back several of these without any problem.
Overall: Very good beer overall and one of the best I've had in the style. I would definitely recommend it. Another solid offering from Bell's.

3.71/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Tried to rate this one to style, as it might be one of my least favorite styles. This one tasted along the lines of an ESB.
The appearance was a little on the orange side, translucent with some head along the edge. The smell was grainy with what to me is a typical British pale ale yeast. The taste follows this, grainy with a little lemon added to produce a faint copper taste that I associate with ESBs. I guess the good thing is that since it does remind me of an ESB, it does have a hop presence, which some of the style seem devoid of. The feel is a bit watery, but I think that of almost any beer in this style.
I will probably not revisit this beer unless it's the sole option, but that's due more to my preferences than the quality of the beer. If not obvious, if you're an ESB fan, I think you should give it a whirl to decide for yourself.
Serving type: on-tap
