On tap at Alesmith. Described as a session version of Anvil ESB.

A: Reddish orange with a mountainous beige head. Good retention and lots of lacing.

S: Esters give off plum, grape, and date aromatics. Baked bread blends with caramel.

T: Pronounced fruity yeast character reminds me of plum and cherry. There's a little raspberry in there as well. Very interesting. Malt is biscuity with a touch of caramel.

M: Lower medium body with upper moderate carbonation.

Overall: A pretty damn good session ale. Lots of flavor and low alcohol. What more could you ask for in such a beverage? Oh, it's also not palate wearying. (632 characters)

On tap at AleSmith during 2011 San Diego Beer Week. Listed on the board as an "ESB Session Ale".

Pours a clear dark amber with a sizeable cap of dense stone colored foam. Nice lacing and retails a film of head throughout. Smell is floral with citrus in the secondary (some bright orange). Taste leans more towards a biscuity pale malt with some creamy orange. Smooth medium carbonation and medium body. Overall, this is extremely drinkable; I think I could put down liters of this. (482 characters)
