4.16/5 rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep and fairly hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A toasty and somewhat spicy malt driven aroma with hints of biscuit and light fruit. Toasted malts with upfront hints of biscuit, grains, yeast, toasted bread, cracker, caramel, toffee, nuts, and some rye spicing. Backing presence of earthy and floral hops with some hints of grass. Also some subtle citrus fruit hints of orange and lemon. A pretty solid malty aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, a nicely toasty and bready malt forward taste with notes of biscuit, rye, and light fruit. Upfront toasted malts with notes of biscuit, yeast, grains, toasted bread, caramel, toffee, crackers, nuts, and rye spicing. Decent backing presence of hops with some earthy and floral notes of grass. Light citrus fruit taste of orange and lemon. A nice toasty and spicy taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nicely creamy and smooth with a fairly drying finish.
Overall: A very solid take on the ESB style. The rye like spice adds a nice kick to the malt.
Serving type: can
