3.68/5 rDev +4.5%
a nice amber pour (clean) with 2 fingers of off-white head (dissipated). smells fruity (raspberry), malty sweet, bready.
taste is slightly bitter up front then very sweet, bready, fruity. a very nice session ale. light to medium body, slightly creamy.. this and climax's esb are probably my 2 go-to's of local stuff. wish it were a bit hoppier/slightly less fruity, but it seriously goes down so easy that it's hard to complain.

Pours a golden brown and slightly cloudy. Minimal head that disappates quickly. Smell on this one is almost stale - kind of reminiscent of a wet cardboard box. Thankfully the taste is good for this style of beer. It is bitter with a hint of some malt for a tad deeper flavor.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is malty, some caramel. Taste is malts, up front, a touch of caramel, hops are present at the finish, well balanced. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

From a bottle into a pint glass
Pours a hazy amber with a one finger head. A nice looking ESB.
Aroma is not pronounced.
Taste is quite smooth. Works very well with food as it won't overpower your meal but complement it. It ends on a slight bitter note but not over pronounced.
Mouthfeel is OK.
If you like ESBs, and I do, this is not a bad one to pick up.
