[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]
The pour was a clear copper color with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that was mostly diminishing down to a thin film with a small collar, thus producing poor spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet bread malt and an earthy yeast with a note of caramel and a touch of dark fruit (cherries and plums).
The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a good dose of caramel throughout, with the finish being slightly fruity and lightly bitter yet still possessed a rather nice sweetness. The flavor only lasted a short while following the swallow, with a nice fruity malty taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was a step or two above light in body with a slightly watery texture and a somewhat mild carbonation.
Overall this was a pretty decent ESB that had a slight bitter ending, a sweet caramel middle and a very good drinkability...
