Poured into a Pint Glass
Appearance - Darker Orange and hazy with tons of carbonation initially before it becomes mild. Head width pours in around 2 fingers and has some soapy retention.
Smell - Floral Hops, Bready/Biscuits, Orange Peel, and Malts. Has a slightly resin scent to it; Interesting...
Taste - Floral Hops, Resin, Citrus, and Yeasts. Surprisingly Hoppy considering my past experience with ESB Ales. Still very tasty to drink with a more robust flavor as it warms up.
Mouthfeel - Moderate body with mild carbonation. Slightly crisp but not what I would call refreshing. It had a very slight creamy feel to it though.
Overall - It's always fun to explore the ever-expanding Minnesota craft beer scene and beers like this prove to me why. It's easy to enjoy, quite good and provides a unique twist in ESB style ales. I look forward to trying out more from Badger Hill in the future!
