22 oz beer was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a one finger head that has reduced to a small puffy layer. It is a copper brown color with some clarity and visions of carbonation coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: sweet and bready malts, biscuit, toasted oats, yeast notes, and some fruitiness.
Taste: chocolate, bready malts, grainy, slight bitterness, nutty, and some roasty and toasty flavors.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, a little watery, light to medium bodied, a little chewy, and enjoyable on the palate.
Overall: Pretty solid ESB. Fullers and Hobglobin I have had a lot, but happy to add this one to the mix.

Swung by local bbq and craft beer joint, bobbique, for some lunch and a pint. Served in a glass mug. Brew is transparent brown w a thin creamy almost tan head. Nose is malt forward with a really nice crystallized malt caramel thing going on in the taste. A bit toasted. Easy drinker really nice example of the style, but on the earthier side of the spectrum. I wouldn't expected less earth and more hop from alesmith.

3.8/5 rDev -2.1%

Poured into a modified tulip at 50deg.
A - Caramel colored, clarity is nice, light thin topping of white froth.
S - Tones of warm dark fruit, burnt sugar, and warm wheat toast.
T - Caramel, brown sugar, a hint of floral at the end.
M - Uniform coating that lingers for some time. The carbonation is low giving the mouth feel a slickness.
O - I find the offering a little thick, the flavor is complex, and the balance is wonderful
I will revisit and report back.
