3.45/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Slightly hazy orange/copper color. Thin soapy off-white head.

Aroma: Bready with sweet (candy-like) hop notes.

Taste: Same as the aroma with some added caramel malt flavor and a hint of citrus. A tad watery but that's to be expected at 5.3% ABV. I wish there was more hop flavor here. The bitterness is moderate, nothing a hop head would go crazy for. The palate is mostly sweet overall.

Mouthfeel: Closer to thin than medium in body. Average carbonation and easy drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Wasn't expecting much from this one so it basically met my expectations. A decent ESB. Would I drink it again? Eh, probably not. Although, I have seen friends session this beer.

3.66/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle with an enjoy by date of 6/4/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - light, bubbly amber; thin white head that leaves scattered lacing.
Smell - I detect faint toast, some pine, as well as mild spice.
Taste - sweetness from the malt paired with a touch of bitterness from the hops.
Feel - light body with a well balanced malt and hop profile!
Overall - better than I expected and a good value!
