3.7/5  rDev +5.1%

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.
