Cloudy peach colored pour with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has toast and bready malt with a hint of sweetness. Taste has a strong toast flavor upfront backed by grainy malt. Can also some light tropical fruit. Pretty well balanced beer. Medium bodied.

Overall dark fruit tones and mellow aftertaste is what's memorable about this beer. Slight caramel and toffee notes and a smooth texture. Not very toasty or bitter, more of a full bodied amber beer that tastes juicy and somewhat rich. To me it taste more like an Alt than an ESB but truely a well crafted beer and worth a try.

A: Cloudy caramel appearance with little head retention

S: Toasty, malty up front, burnt sugar, fruity

T: In line with smell. Malty, bread-like, tropical fruit on finish. Great balance.

M: Velvety, medium body

O: Respite for the hop-weary, but avoids the weightiness of a malt bomb. Yeast gives it a great fruitiness that begs for another sip and makes it very drinkable. Well done.
