3.91/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Pint.
Appearance: Reddish-brown with decent cream colored head and nice lacing.
Smell: Caramel, cherry & other dark fruits, and spicy, floral hops. The nose is a little weak, but this is common for English style beers.
Taste: Toasted caramel, cherry & dark fruits, tea & biscuits - strong English backbone here. The finish is fairly hoppy and sharp, but of the spicy & floral variety.
Feel: Medium body with carbonation mostly in check. Fairly dry finish.
Overall: A very solid take on the ESB style, although there are some Brown Ale qualities mixed in as well. I bet this would be great on cask.
Serving type: can

4.16/5 rDev +7.2%
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
