Virginia

3/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: amber with reddish and gold highlights, thick, fluffy off white head, great clarity

Aroma: caramel, bready, some earthy hop notes, slight floral character as well

Taste: less flavorful than I had hoped for, and certainly less malt character than true English ESBs. Some malty, caramel character that finishes bitter with some earthy and floral hop character.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation. This would be better if it was less carbonated like English cask ales

Overall: Not bad but I don't know if I would get this again. Caramel and bready malt character with earthy and floral hop character. A good start for any beer but this just seems to be somewhat poorly executed.

12oz bottle into a tulip. BB 7/24/14

Pours a dark amber with a nice inch and a half thick white head. Smell is quite malty...reminds me of a typical amber ale honestly. Taste though is much more like an ESB. Very drinkable but just not that much flavor. extreme amount of maltiness. finishes dry with not much bitterness at all. its decent. mild body with mild carbonation.

overall a drinkable beer but nothing to rave about. bit too bland.

3.36/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a hand glass.

A: Amber hue. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, white head. Settles very slowly. Medium, beer ring lacing.

S: Nuts, caramel, fresh tea leaf.

T: Lightly malty. White bread, with a slight hop. Lightly bitter, with a slight indistinct sweetness.

M: Light body. A bit of a shallow feel. Lightly bitter bland aftertaste remains.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Persistent foamy head, and some nice lacing. Nose is nutty and buttery with some tea leaf. Light and bready with a slightly bitter hop, balanced with a slight sweetness. A little shallow and bland. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.
