Clear orange copper pour with a small and airy white head. Really nice citrusy aroma. Very light flavor that has piney hops balanced out by a nice grainy caramel malt.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet (DOB: 7/10/14)

A: Slightly hazy bronze body with a one finger white head that stays for just a bit. No lacing.

S: Very easy drinking with a quick hop punch that is just there for a second or two. Otherwise, it is just a smooth ESB.

T: I've been thinking of only pumpkin beers for the fall, so I was surprised to not get any pumpkin or spices at all. This is more like the falling leaves,

M: Nice smooth carbonation, that seems like it might be rough but stays velvety throughout.

O: This is definitely on the higher end of ABV for an ESB, which helps the flavors out a lot. Good, but I went in with wrong expectations (pumpkin beer). That is why they need to label a style outside of Harvest, Special Ale and Seasonal.

Love the grain taste of this beer with all the nice hops to top it off. Great beer.
