Light copper. Nice hoppy nose. The flavor profile and body are a bit thin, however. This is very sessionable but the key to an ESB for me is the mutual co-existence between the malt and hop flavors. There is not enough of a malt backbone here to make me happy.

Clear, golden copper colored beer. Decent he's retention.

Strong citrusy hop aroma. Very striking and surprising. Some roasted malt aroma.

Very citrusy, Very tea-like flavor. Very different than I thought it would be.

Light to medium bodied mouthfeel with a very dry, bitter finish.

Overall, a very odd beer for me. Not sure really what style to compare it to. There is a lot going on. Very complex beer.
